Reince Priebus (R) Elected RNC Chairman

Steele's (R) out, Priebus (R) is in.

"the Republican National Committee elected Reince Priebus as its chairman. I tried to follow the hotly contested race for this post, but couldn't sustain an interest; this was truly inside baseball.

I know three things about Priebus, all positive. First, he isn't Michael Steele. Second, he was successful as head of the GOP in Wisconsin and received the backing of newly elected Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson. Third, he gained the confidence of the Committee that elected him. I trust that the committeemen are a savvy enough as a collective to elect a competent figure provided they don't let extraneous factors get in the way, as I believe they did with Steele.
