Reince Priebus
Reince Priebus was elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee on January 14, 2011. In his first year as Chairman, Reince oversaw a dramatic turnaround of the RNC, building it into a strong and effective organization for electing Republicans in 2012.

Under Reince’s leadership, the RNC raised more major donor money in an off year than in the history of the RNC. At the same time, the RNC has broken new ground, deploying new communication strategies and innovative technology for voter outreach.

Reince is committed to uniting the Republican Party to reach our common goal – electing Republicans. With sound fiscal stewardship, a dedication to conservative principles, and a message of freedom and prosperity, Reince continues to lead the party toward victory in 2012.

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 citizen legislator Ron Johnson to the Senate, but they gained two additional U.S. House seats, won the Governor’s office, took back both the state Assembly and the state Senate and defeated the leaders of both of those chambers.

Reince has a long history in Republican politics, having served on his first campaign at the age of 16. Since then, 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.

A proud native of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Reince is happily married to his wife, Sally. They have two young children, Jack and Grace.
