WASHINGTON, April 8 (UPI) -- An updated version of the Republican Party's "Contract with America" likely will be unveiled in late summer or fall, a freshman U.S. House GOP member said.
Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., told MSNBC the document members of his party dubbed "Commitment with America" will include many of the same principles as the original treatise that helped propel Republicans to sweeping congressional victories in 1994 when Bill Clinton was president, The Hill reported Thursday.
"I think you're going to see a similar platform and a similar set of goals, obviously relevant to today's issues, come out at the end of this summer or early fall that many of our candidates will be running on," Schock said.
Schock said the document would contain provisions advocating smaller government and fiscal discipline.
House Republican Chief Deputy Whip Kevin McCarthy of California, the lead document developer, told The Hill last week Republicans would use Internet tools to help spread the "Commitment" message, the Washington Publication said.
