CHICAGO (AP) - Republican congressman Paul Ryan is telling the party's most active members that criticism of President Barack Obama alone is insufficient to sustain a GOP comeback in this year's elections and in 2016.
Ryan tells the Republican National Committee at a downtown Chicago hotel that the nation is in a "trajectory-making moment" that will determine its character for at least a generation.
The Wisconsin congressman says that Republicans must expand in under-represented voting groups. He also says that the party must show results, and cites immigration as an example.
Ryan says Republicans need to show that they have better ideas and real solutions.
The GOP's 2012 vice presidential nominee, Ryan is viewed as a potential 2016 presidential candidate.
