Two days after being labeled a "GOP star you've never heard of," the news website Politico continues to offer coverage to Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam.
Haslam, who is in Washington, D.C., for the National Governors Association winter meeting, participated in the State Solutions Conference Friday, sponsored by Politico and Microsoft.
In a report on the event, Politico quoted the governor offering thoughts on what contributed to Republicans' inability to relay their message to voters last November.
Haslam was quoted suggesting that the GOP loss in the presidential election was because of a lack in messaging, along with ground game.
"I don't think we did a good job explaining ourselves," Haslam was quoted saying.
Last year, the governor served as the Tennessee state chairman for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign.
