Newscast Media BOSTON—In an effort to attract new voters in a demographic that is ever-changing, the Republican Party has unveiled its new set of rising stars in the RNC's "Rising Stars" program, which debuted with four members: Scott G. Ericson, a San Jose, Calif., police officer for 15 years and a conservative writer; State Representative Marilinda Garcia, elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives; Karin Agness, founder and president of the Network of enlightened Women, or NeW and T.W. Shannon, Speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

"We have this stereotype of Republicans being old, white, Anglo-Saxon men. But there's people like me that have been out there working for years," said 30-year-old New Hampshire State Rep. Marilinda Garcia,. "So they're like, 'Why not have her talk about our values instead of Newt Gingrich all the time?'" she told the press.

According to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus the committee has already hired over 140 staffers across the country to assist in attracting new voters.

However, Republicans can't just focus on changing faces of potential candidates, they have to come up with a message that resonates with the electorate, and also devise solutions that are practical to the most pressing needs of average Americans.

The "Rising Stars" programs is certainly the first step in the right direction, because it introduces unknown politicians to Americans, who can then follow their policies, thereafter determine whether or not to support the candidates.  In essence, the candidates too have to sell themselves. Add Comments>>
