GOP Rep. Steve LaTourette: Get the Party 'Out of People’s Bedrooms'

Rep. Steve LaTourette, a Republican from Ohio, had some strong language for his party on Thursday, saying that he wants Republicans “out of people’s bedrooms.”

After Republicans lost the presidential race and failed to retake the Senate, LaTourette said the GOP must rein in its extreme right wing and reach out to growing minority groups in order to stay competitive in future elections.

“We have the right message on finances, we have to get out of people’s lives, get out of people’s bedrooms, and we have to be a national party,” LaTourette said on CNN’s Starting Point. “Or else we’re going to lose.”

 

The notion that the tea party holds the key to Republican success moving forward is "nonsense," LaTourette said. He also said that "we can't continue to dis the Latino voters." Finally, LaTourette took aim at Republican Senate candidates Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin, both of whom made controversial remarks about rape during the election.

"My wife's a Democrat, and she was so close to voting for Mitt Romney," he said. "But then, you know, Mourdock and Akin opened their mouth, and we sent them running back to the Democratic Party, because they think we're nutty."
