RNC Unveils the Next Generation of Republican Leaders
The Republican National Committee unveiled its 'Rising Stars' program today, shining the spotlight on the next generation of Republican leaders. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus created the program in an effort to attract a wider range of voters by promoting new Republican individuals and talent within the party.
Tonight, two of those rising stars, Oklahoma Speaker of the House T.W. Shannon and Network of Enlightened Women founder Karin Agness, joined Hannity to discuss their platforms.
Both agreed that ObamaCare needs to be defunded and that border security is priority in immigration reform.
Shannon believes there’s a lack of leadership in Washington D.C. “If we’re going to turn things around in this country, we’re going to have to look to the state level.”
He added, “If you listen to the liberal media, they will tell you and have you believe there aren’t people that look like me that hold conservative values. […] I didn’t learn [my conservative values] from some talking head, I learned them from my predominantly African American church.”
