RNC Chairman Reince Priebus described last week as a “defining” moment in Mitt Romney’s race for the White House and President Barack Obama's quest to stay there.

“This was the defining week in both campaigns where, I think, both campaigns are crystallizing around a central theme, which is going to be, ‘What kind of future do we want for our kids and grandkids,’” Priebus said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “What type of America do we want for this country?”

On Sept. 18, a video was leaked to the media showing Romney talking about America’s poorest citizens during a high-end fundraiser in Boca Raton, Fla.

Priebus told host George Stephanopoulos the Romney campaign is more concerned about the future of the country than the future of the Republican Party.

“I promise you on my life I’m not sitting here talking to you because I’m worried about the future of the Republican Party, and I can guarantee you that all the people that we’re talking to here in Wisconsin aren’t, either,” he said. “We’re worried about the future of this country.”

There was also more clamoring for the Romney campaign to go big and bold last week.

“As far as specifics go, we’re the only ones talking about how to save Medicare,” Priebus said. “We’ve got specifics coming out of our eyeballs, George, and I just think that we need to keep pounding away on those specifics and keep talking about those specifics so that the American people know.”

Responding to Democratic criticism surrounding Romney’s 2011 tax returns, Priebus said that President Barack Obama is trying to dodge questions over foreign policy and the domestic economy, among others.

“The Romneys have been successful, but they’ve also been the types of people in the community that we thank God for every day through their generosity and their kind heart,” he said.
