State GOP endorses Priebus as RNC head

The three members of the Republican National Committee who represent the state of Alabama recently endorsed RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as he seeks his second term as chairman of the Republican National Committee.

“When Reince Priebus was first elected Chairman of the RNC almost two years ago, he took over an organization that was 24 million dollars in debt and that had lost the trust and respect of both major donors and grassroots donors alike,” said Bill Armistead, chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. “After two years, the RNC is back in the black and donors around the country at every level have trust in the management of the RNC once more.”

Under the leadership and management of Chairman Priebus, the RNC erased a debt attributed to the previous administration and in the process broke multiple fundraising records in the run up to the 2012 Presidential Election.

The election for RNC chairman will take place at the winter meeting of the RNC held in Charlotte, N.C., Jan. 23-26.
