In an apparent effort to discredit suggestions that the GOP establishment is terrified that Donald Trump will get the party’s nomination, Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus said he’ll support whoever the voters select.
In an interview with CBS, Priebus insisted that any of the current GOP candidates would have an edge over “Hillary Clinton, who is under investigation by the FBI, or a socialist from Vermont.”
The RNC chairman also insisted that no establishment GOP donors have expressed serious concerns about a Trump nomination.
“Honestly, I don’t hear that,” he said. “In a competition, sure, candidates say, ‘I’m going to be the best choice; this person isn’t going to be that great.’
That happens all the time. After a while, when you have six serious competitors out there on the campaign stump every day, you hear all kinds of things.”
When pressed about rifts in the Republican Party, Priebus noted that anyone looking for controversy ought to have plenty of fodder on the Democratic side.
“We’ve got some drama and intrigue going on in the Republican Party, but if you look at what’s going on in the Democratic Party, it is a complete and total train wreck,” he said. “At least we have people who are working really hard to fight and claw their way to the nomination.
“I think if you look at where we’re at as a party, if you look at where the Democrats are at, I think most people believe we’re in a pretty darn good place.”
