Republicans will be looking inward, trying to figure out what went right and wrong in last month's election.
The Republican National Committee Monday announced the Growth and Opportunity Project, chaired by five GOP officials.
Chairman Reince Priebus said it would "initially reviewing past practices and (make) recommendations for the future in these eight key areas: 1) campaign mechanics and ground game; 2) messaging; 3) fundraising; 4) demographic partners and allies; 5) third party groups; 6) campaign finance issues; 7) presidential primaries; and 8) lessons learned from Democratic campaign tactics."
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney lost the Nov. 6 election, and the party had a net loss of two Senate and seven House of Representatives seats.
The chairs include Henry Barbour, National Committeeman from Mississippi; Zori Fonalledas, National Committeewoman from Puerto Rico; Glenn McCall, National Committeeman from South Carolina; Sally Bradshaw, veteran senior strategist in Florida and national politics and Ari Fleischer, former White House Press Secretary.
They will recommend what Priebus called "a plan to further ensure Republicans are victorious in 2013, 2014, 2016 and beyond."
