Republicans who gathered at Wednesday evening’s Hamilton County Outdoor Party to hear House Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy talk about Hillary Clinton, instead got a message about how to reach out to non-Republican voters.

Gowdy, an attorney and former  federal prosecutor, told the audience that the GOP was was one in six when it came to winning the popular vote since 1992, and anyone with that type of record would have been fired from their jobs.

Gowdy said Republicans did not have to change their principles, but they will have to modify their message if they want to win over a growing electorate that is becoming much more diverse.  

He noted that a voter will vote for someone that they don’t like, but they won’t vote for someone who doesn’t think they like them.

You can hear Gowdy’s complete comments in the Leon-Tailored Audio above.  It runs about 20 minutes.
