A Wisconsin native will serve in one of the most powerful position’s in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.
Kenosha native Reince Priebus was tapped Sunday by Trump to serve as the incoming White House chief of staff. The 44-year-old currently leads the Republican National Committee.
The decision drew widespread praise from Wisconsin Republicans. Governor Scott Walker said Priebus will be an oustanding chief of staff, while Assembly Speaker Robin Vos called him a forward thinker. ““I have known Reince since our College Republican days at UW-Whitewater. I couldn’t be more proud of the work he has done for the conservative movement. He will be an amazing chief of staff who will work the President-Elect to get things done in Washington.”
Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Brad Courtney called it an “excellent decision,” describing Priebus as a “talented and effective leader.” Priebus is a former chair of the state GOP.
