Mr. Priebus also launched a preemptive strike against President Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday, where the Democrat is expected to focus on the growing economic gap between the rich and the poor.

“The president is now preparing speeches on income inequality,” Mr. Priebus said. “I believe he should give those speeches while standing in front of the mirror because under his watch everything has gotten worse. He should talk to himself because poverty is worse, food stamp dependency is worse and more people have given up looking for work under Barack Obama’s watch then in any time that I can remember.”

The RNC will meet later this year to set the date for the national convention and could chose a location for the national convention as early as this summer.

Las Vegas, Denver, Columbus, Kansas City and Phoenix are among the cities jockeying to host the event.
