The Republican National Committee says they’re no longer going to be cornered into a one-color scheme — so they’re adding a little blue.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus this week unveiled a new “GOP” logo that features a blue “O” with an elephant in it.

“Now Democrats will be the party of red, which is much more in line with their record and values. After all, they are the party of red tape, red lines and red ink,” he said.

Blue and red have become short-hand for the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively, but Mr. Priebus said those associations are misplaced.

“As recently as the 2000 election, Republicans, like other major conservative parties in the world, were more closely associated with blue,” he said. “Mainstream media outlets like The New York Times then decided to paint us red. We’ve had enough of the media’s games and are reclaiming the color blue.”
