re­elected as the Chair­man of the RNC on Jan­uary 25, 2013, and on Jan­uary 16, 2015.

Ac­cord­ing to the RNC web­site, Priebus was set to be­come the long­est serv­ing chair­man in mod­ern his­tory after serv­ing a to­tal of three terms. What might be less re­ported in the pub­lic is that he was in­stru­men­tal in mak­ing tech­nol­ogy and in­fra­struc­ture changes in­side the RNC, and he has spo­ken at po­lit­i­cal events about get­ting the RNC caught up on how to use big data ahead of and around elec­tions.

Priebus was chair­man of the Repub­li­can Party of Wis­con­sin. He is said to be friends with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and he is deemed to be a known com­mod­ity to ev­ery sin­gle Repub­li­can party of­fi­cial. Other po­si­tions held were as the 1st Con­gres­sional District chair­man, state party trea­surer, first vice chair, and the state party chair­man.

In an ef­fort to show both sides of the coin, it is im­por­tant to see what con­ser­va­tive and lib­eral me­dia have said since the ap­point­ment.

The New York Times noted that Trump’s ap­point­ment of Priebus was turn­ing to a Wash­ing­ton in­sider whose friend­ship with House Speaker Paul Ryan could help se­cure early leg­isla­tive vic­to­ries. The New York Times also opined about the dual ap­point­ments of Priebus as chief of staff and Stephen Ban­non as chief strate­gist.

Fox News also ran four take­aways from the de­ci­sion to make Priebus the chief of staff, and Priebus him­self gave Fox a fiveminute video in­ter­view ex­plain­ing what he will do go­ing for­ward.
