Self Description

June 2016: "Chairman Reince Priebus was elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee on January 14, 2011, and reelected on January 25, 2013 and on January 16, 2015. Priebus will become the longest serving chairman in modern history, serving a total of three terms. In his first term as Chairman, Reince oversaw a dramatic turnaround of the RNC, rescuing its finances, rebuilding the operations and implementing the best ground game effort the RNC had ever organized.

In his second term as Chairman, Reince made a commitment to taking the party’s message of freedom and economic opportunity to all states and all communities. By welcoming new voices and voters and harnessing the power of new technology, Reince led the RNC in building the infrastructure needed for a landslide GOP victory in the midterm elections. Chairman Priebus understands 2016 will bring new challenges, but he is determined to capitalize on the midterm successes while engineering new and innovative strategies to elect a Republican to the White House.

A successful chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Reince created the framework that brought about one of the most historic election cycles Wisconsin has ever experienced. During Reince’s tenure, Republicans in Wisconsin not only defeated Russ Feingold by electing Ron Johnson to the Senate, but they also gained two additional U.S. House seats, won the Governor’s office, took back both the state Assembly and the state Senate, while defeating the leaders of both of those chambers.

Reince has a long history in Republican politics as a grassroots volunteer. He worked his way up through the ranks of the Republican Party of Wisconsin as 1st Congressional District Chairman, State Party Treasurer, First Vice Chair, and eventually State Party Chairman. In 2009, Reince served as General Counsel to the RNC, a role in which he volunteered his time to help manage the RNC’s most difficult challenges..."
