Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said Saturday that moving the GOP convention to June from August would improve the chances of winning general elections.

“And yes, it’s going to shrink the duration of the primaries. It’s not an establishment takeover. We’re trying to do what’s right,” he told conservatives at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, with cheers and “amen” resounding in the crowd. “Listen, I’d rather win together than lose together.”

Priebus also said Republicans need to get it together when it comes to building a strong grassroots ground operation, relying on that network, rather than mailers, for year-round activism. He called for better branding and marketing that outlines the GOP as the “party of equality, freedom, opportunity” because “it’s our party that has a rich history, but you wouldn’t know it, because we don’t say it.”

“It doesn’t matter whether you’re for Nikki Haley, Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio, you’re going to have a big fat R next to your name and it stands for Republican,” Priebus said.
