Republican National Committee Chairman (RNC) Reince Priebus rallied New Hampshire Republicans Tuesday with harsh criticism of President Barack Obama, as the campaign for the nation’s first primary gets set to begin, Politico reports.
"Hope isn't hiring," Priebus told state politicians and activists gathered for a big state party fundraiser, mocking the president’s 2008 campaign theme of hope.
"I'm here for one reason, and that's to make sure Barack Obama is a one-term president."
Priebus said he would fight for New Hampshire's No. 1 spot on the primary calendar against other states that hope to move their primary elections to earlier calendar dates.
"I support the rules of the RNC," Priebus said.
Attendees at the fundraiser included presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, and Herman Cain.
