Roundtable: GOP plan on using abortion in 2014

(CNN) - The Republican National Committee is holding its winter meeting in Washington, D.C., which they have called "Building to Victory." As a hint to what issues they may be building on in 2014, they left the schedule open for members to attend the March for Life, the annual anti-abortion rally.

A resolution supported by 16 RNC members will be introduced at the meeting to, "support Republican pro-life candidates who fight back against Democratic deceptive war on women rhetoric by pointing out the extreme positions on abortion held by Democratic opponents," as first reported by CNN's Peter Hamby.

Is this a move to keep social issues a major component of the Republican party, or is it about keeping women in the fold? And with midterm elections this year, what else is on the agenda for Republicans?

CNN national political reporter Peter Hamby and CNN chief congressional correspondent Dana Bash discuss.
