Priebus Named Chief of Staff

President-elect Donald Trump named Kenosha native and Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus as his White House chief of staff Sunday, suggesting an increased willingness by Trump to work within Washington’s system to accomplish his agenda. At the same time, however, Trump announced that Stephen K. Bannon, his campaign CEO, will be his chief strategist; that’s according to a statement that called Priebus and Bannon “equal partners.” He was named chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin in 2007, and took the reins of the Republican National Committee in 2011.
