"I think that we have to be very aggressive on what she’s done or hasn’t done," the chairman said, according to a transcript of Hewitt's radio show. "And the things that she is famous for, like a botched health care rollout in the 90s, and Benghazi, and the things that she is involved with that are or went obviously pretty badly, we need to focus in on."

Priebus said that although the RNC was looking toward the 2014 midterms, the committee could still suss out some of the "rough stuff" about Clinton.

"But I think that there’s a lot of rough stuff coming out on Hillary that you know, it doesn’t just come out of thin air," he told Hewitt, according to the transcript. "It comes from somewhere. And sometimes, it comes from us, and sometimes, it comes from other groups."
