President-Elect Trump Names Pro-Life Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff
The decision is the first in what pro-life voters hope will be a long line of pro-life personnel decisions concerning leaders in Donald Trump’s administration who they hope will have a pro-life view on abortion. The decision is already drawing strong praise from leading pro-life organizations.
Priebus will serve as President-elect Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Trump’s transition organization announced on Sunday afternoon. Trump praised Priebus in his victory speech last week, saying that “Reince is really a star. And he is the hardest-working guy.”
Priebus, 44, is a lawyer who served as general counsel of the RNC under the troubled tenure of previous chairman Michael Steele. After taking over in 2011, he steered it out of both gaffe prone controversies and debt and worked to build up a better network to help Republicans accross the country get elected. Much of Trump’s “ground game” which produced an upset victory Tuesday came courtesy not of the Trump campaign but the RNC’s own organizing muscle.
The RNC head was born in New Jersey and moved to Green Bay with the family when he was a boy. Priebus came up through the Wisconsin Republican Party. . . . Priebus made good on his promise to back the eventual GOP nominee “100 percent” and Trump has awarded that effort with one of the most important posts in DC.
Priebus is pro-life — so much so that he put off a major GOP meeting so members could attend the March for Life. In an unprecedented show of opposition to abortion in 2014, Priebus is delayed the start of the party’s annual winter meeting so he and other committee members can join the March for Life on the National Mall. . . .
