    The (RNC) is standing fully behind Donald Trump, chairman Reince Priebus said Monday in a private conference call. Speaking to the 168 members of the RNC, Priebus sought to squash rumors that the national party would cut the nominee loose to focus on protecting GOP majorities in the House and Senate, according to sources on the call. Trump is running a bare-bones campaign that is overly reliant on staff from the RNC, and a reallocation of resources to down-ballot races would effectively doom his campaign. Down-ballot Republicans have begun signaling they’ll be run parallel campaigns that are untethered from the...

As the party’s leadership convened in Cleveland on Wednesday for a series of organizational meetings, the possibility that the smoldering dissent over Mr. Trump could become a full-blown eruption on the convention floor was a top concern.

It's unkown if Trump was consulted about the choice.

    Reince Priebus, the beleaguered and balding Republican National Committee chairman, was asked a few days ago about his mane. “How much gray hair do you think you’re going to have by December?” CNN’s Jake Tapper inquired. “Gray is fine,” the party boss replied. “I just want to make sure I have hair.” Alternatively, he could try a Whig. This could be the first time in 160 years when a major American political party splits, and Priebus, the young technocrat from Wisconsin brought in to improve the Republicans’ infrastructure, is in over his head.

    Without saying it, Reince Priebus just told Sean Hannity Tuesday on Fox News that one of the three candidates currently in the running — Trump, Cruz, Kasich — WILL BE the nominee. And he won’t count out Kasich? When pressed by Hannity that there’s no way Kasich can be the nominee for all the Rules reasons, Priebus refused to agree.
  • Reince Priebus Attacks Trump....Silent On Cruz & Kasich (Vanity)

    Yesterday, on national TV, Reince Priebus the RNC Chairman openly attacked Donald J. Trump on his failure to stand by Trump's "Party Loyalty" oath to commit to supporting the GOP POTUS nominee. But, Priebus failed to mention that both Ted Cruz & John Kasich have openly backed away from exactly the same pledge weeks before Trump joined them. IMHO....Priebus should be forced to resign for his direct of unfairness towards a fellow Republican candidate....that being Donald J. Trump, and openly giving a pass to both Ted Cruz & John Kasich. IMHO.....Reince Priebus is just another loyal, active member of the...

    If Donald Trump wins the Republican presidential nomination this summer, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus is vowing not to give the billionaire’s campaign control over the party leading up to the November election, according to a report in The New York Times. The Times said Priebus “has also let it be known that he does not plan to let the Trump campaign take over the party apparatus if he captures the nomination. “At an off-the-record happy hour with reporters last week, Mr. Priebus said clearly that, regardless of precedent, he would not be layered over by Mr. Trump’s loyalists,...

  • Talk Radio’s Trump Divide

    The divide between Wisconsin conservative talk radio and national talk radio over Donald Trump is remarkable. The other day, I wrote that it’s time for Wisconsin conservatives who are still on the sidelines to get active, to step up and start making the case against the candidate who will topple the infrastructure of conservative thought and policy that’s taken decades to build. (That candidate is Trump, in case you were wondering) In Wisconsin, WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes, on-air and via his Right Wisconsin website, has made his stance against Trump clear. See my call to action for more on that. WISN’s...

    The Republican Party is launching a campaign to try to derail President Barack Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, teaming up with a conservative opposition research group to target vulnerable Democrats and impugn whomever Obama picks. A task force housed within the Republican National Committee will orchestrate attack ads, petitions and media outreach to bolster a strategy that Senate Republicans adopted as soon as Justice Antonin Scalia died last month: refusing to consider an Obama nominee out of hopes that the next president will be a Republican. The RNC will contract with America Rising Squared, an outside group targeting Democrats...

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus insisted Thursday night that the Republican Party would embrace its nominee, even if it was Donald Trump. "This party is going to support the nominee, whoever it is, 100 percent," Priebus said to tepid applause on stage in Miami before the latest GOP debate. "No question about that." Republicans have struggled for months on whether to embrace Trump, the controversial businessman leading the GOP race, or rally around one of his rivals. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) is the closest to knocking off Trump based on the number of accrued delegates, and has expressed openness...
