Republicans Reach Out to Evangelicals

 In an attempt to better connect with faith-based groups, the Republican National Committee has reportedly hired a director of evangelical outreach.

CNN reports that Chad Connelly, who was the chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party until this past weekend, will assume the position. Although details about the job have not yet been released, Connelly reportedly told several South Carolina Republicans that he will head up the GOP's outreach to faith-based groups.
