Priebus: Obama Said Clearly His Policies Were on the Ballot, Voters Acted Accordingly

‘This was all about a direct rejection of the Obama agenda ... President Obama said very clearly that his policies were on the ballot, and voters were very clear in return’

"This was all about a direct rejection of the Obama agenda. As all of you know, President Obama said very clearly that his policies were on the ballot and voters were very clear in return. They want nothing to do with the policies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Up and down the ballot, these were the presidents’ candidates. These were the Clintons’ candidates and they lost.

Remember, Hillary Clinton campaigned in Kentucky, Grimes lost by over 15 points. Then Hillary went to Iowa and Joni Ernst won by more than eight points. Hillary couldn’t save the Democrat in the Massachusetts governors race. We won in red states, we won in blue states, and we won in purple states. We won because our policies resonated with the electorate, our ground game mobilized voters and our candidates connected with the American people."
