MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) RNC Chairman Reince Preibus says an effort by Republicans to send hundreds of party workers into minority communities across the country will continue long after this year's midterm elections are over.

Priebus spoke Tuesday at a gathering of Republicans in Georgia, a state where Democrats are hoping an increase in minority voters along with an influx of out-of-state residents will make the state more competitive starting this year.

The effort by the Republican National Committee also includes voter registration drives and numerous community meetings and is one of many launched by Republicans this election cycle. The work will be critical for the GOP, comprised heavily of white voters, as the size and political strength of minority populations continues to grow nationally.
