While November's elections are important, GOP leaders gathered at Republican National Convention say they're focused on strengthening the party for the long term.
TAMPA, FL -- With President Barack Obama carrying Illinois by 25 percentage points in 2008 and with a new poll showing him leading Mitt Romney by about the same margin, one might think there's not much joy among delegates and party leaders gathered here for the Republican National Convention this week. And while even the reddest of the Republicans acknowledges that GOP presidential candidate Romney has little chance of carrying Illinois, those in Tampa stress that they're focused on building the party for 2014 and beyond. "The presidential race will be an uphill climb for us," said state party Chairman Pat Brady, adding that Republicans are concentrating their efforts more on congressional and state legislative races this fall.

Schneider Blasts Republican for support of plan authored by vice presidential nominee.
National political pundits think Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) will try to run as far away from the national Republican Presidential ticket of Gov. Mitt Romney and the newly minted vice presidential nominee, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), as he can. Despite those predictions, Dold is neither shying away from his own record or Ryan’s ideas. The North Shore Congressman, who is defending his seat against Deerfield Democrat Brad Schneider, thinks the presence of Ryan on the ticket will center the campaign on issues he considers most important. Earlier: Dold, Schneider Clash on Ryan Budget “What the Ryan nomination will do is focus the campaign on fiscal issues we need to discuss,” Dold said. “It’s about jobs and the economy. It’s very important.” …

10th District Congressional candidates offer their opinion on Gov. Romney’s choice.
Both Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) and the person hoping to replace him as the member of Congress from the 10th Congressional District, Deerfield’s Brad Schneider, were quick to react to Gov. Mitt Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his running mate. Dold, who voted for the 2010 and 2011 House Republican budgets authored by Ryan, thinks Romney’s choice of Ryan will get Americans to focus on issues he believes are important to the country. Earlier: Dold, Schneider Clash on Ryan Budget “Our country needs strong leadership to put us back on a path to prosperity.” Dold said. “Paul Ryan has worked tirelessly to come up with solutions to the enormous fiscal challenges we face. I am optimistic that Mitt Romney's choice for vice …
