Priebus: Trump’s Problem with Women is Hillary Clinton’s Fault (VIDEO)
I don’t really envy Reince Priebus right now. The man has an impossible job, which is to defend the walking cavalcade of indefensible statements and actions, Donald Trump. This morning on This Week with George Stephanopolous, Priebus was asked to respond to a front page New York Times article laying out Trump’s very checkered past with women in the workplace. Priebus’s response was almost total | Read More »
I Have No Interest in Party Unity
“Unity” is a dirty word, especially this election cycle. The word reminds me of groupthink, that which liberals love. It doesn’t ask those in the electorate to consider their vote carefully beyond party loyalty. As has been clear for a while, the GOP front-runner is not a conservative. The damage from a Trump presidency would be long-lasting in ways much different than a Hillary presidency. While I believe both would introduce policies which | Read More »
Priebus, Trump, Cruz Backers and the Platform
Given the strong negative feelings Conservative activists and pundits hold toward The Donald and his history of positions antithetical to Republican orthodoxy on almost every major issue important to Conservatives, this move to take control of the Platform has a good chance of blowing up any chance of a possible rapprochement between Trump and the GOP Establishment not to mention Conservatives long unhappy with both.

Priebus on Trump’s Minority Outreach: “He’s Trying” (Bless His Heart)
Reince Priebus isn’t from the South, so the “Bless His Heart” part is really just implied instead of explicitly stated.

No Tolerance for Former Candidates Who Support Nominee Trump
Despite what the pro-Trump crowd concludes about last night, the #NeverTrump crowd isn’t going away. Those of us who have always believed never actually means never aren’t suddenly deciding to “unite” around Trump, though RNC chairman Reince Priebus commands that. Too many “principled” conservatives are falling victim to the groupthink which says you must coalesce around the person with (R) next to their name. This letter means nothing when | Read More »
An Open Letter To Reince Priebus On Unity
Last night, after Ted Cruz dropped his bid for the White House and conservatives were left with the inevitable sinking feeling that Donald Trump was going to represent the GOP in the 2016 Presidential election, Reince Priebus took to Twitter and issue the following statement: .@realDonaldTrump will be presumptive @GOP nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating @HillaryClinton #NeverClinton — Reince Priebus | Read More »
Reince Priebus Calls For Party Unity And For #NeverTrump To Shut Up And Fall In Line
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is trying to tamp down #NeverTrump by talking party unity, the problem it is that he’s making the real problem, Donald Trump, more intractable

A White House Win That Isn’t Worth Having
The “get in line” mantra from the GOP higher-ups and talking heads continues, and it is very tiresome. For those like RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, winning matters more than anything. He’ll happily ride the coattails of any candidate – even Trump – to get there, no matter the cost. Needless to say, this is extremely foolish. With the GOP front-runner, we have a flip-flopping liberal whose | Read More »

Trump Threatens “Rough Convention” if He Doesn’t Win
He’s definitely not signaling to his supporters that he wants violence, though. Neither he nor Roger Stone is doing so. Why would you even suggest such a thing? Per the Washington Post: SYRACUSE, N.Y. — In his ever-escalating fight with the Republican National Committee, Donald Trump warned Saturday that party leaders should reform its system for selecting a nominee or face a “rough July” when | Read More »
Debbie Wasserman Schultz Says Ted Cruz Is a Natural Born Citizen. Why Won’t Reince Priebus?
Integrity and candor can pop up in some of the most bizarre places. In this case, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who had never been known to be able to pick Truth out of a two-man line-up, acknowledged Ted Cruz is a natural born citizen. This is something RNC chairman Reince Priebus would not do.

Why We Should and Must Blame Reince Priebus For the CNBC Debate Fiasco
My friend and colleague (not to mention boss here at RedState) posted earlier today on why we should not blame the RNC and its chairman, Reince Priebus, for the travesty CNBC inflicted upon its viewers last night. As expected, Erick makes some very good points but I think he lets Preibus and company off too easy. Let’s take a dispassionate look at what happened and | Read More »
Questioning the Chairman
All of us at RedState had a great time at this year’s Gathering. And we’re already looking forward to next year in Atlanta. There was one minor bit of controversy at the Gathering this year and I think I should start today by addressing it. We invited Reince Priebus, Chairman of the RNC, to the RedState Gathering. Normally at the Gathering, with some exceptions, we | Read More »
RNC convention pick bearing fruit: LeBron James to return to Cleveland.
Hey, if the President can take credit for Osama bin Laden, then Reince Priebus and the RNC can take credit for bringing LeBron back to Cleveland. I don’t make the rules, after all. I just use them to be a royal pain in the sit-upon. Four years after he bolted from Cleveland to Miami in pursuit of the N.B.A. championships that had eluded him, LeBron | Read More »
