At least two news sources say RPV Chair John Whitbeck is in the running to be the next Republican National Committee Chairman.
Speculation is David Bossie may be Trump’s first choice to chair the RNC. Bossie was Trump’s deputy campaign manager and is a member of RNC from Maryland. Trump will have a say in the new chair as will current chair Reince Priebus who will be going to the White House with Trump as Chief of Staff. Some say Priebus would never have given up his chairmanship had he not known, and approved of, his successor. Some speculate that Bossie will have a job in the White House, perhaps Political Director. (Isn’t that the job Newt Gingrich has hinted he wants?)
Others being considered for RNC chair from politico.com:
Priebus ally Matt Pinnell, the RNC’s liaison to state parties; and Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chair of the Michigan Republican Party and niece of 2012 nominee Mitt Romney. She bucked her uncle in backing the nominee this year — even penning a November op-ed in the Deseret News in Utah — winning the appreciation of Trump, who has been heard calling her “my Romney.”
Other names that are circulating include Pence adviser Nick Ayers, who worked on Priebus’ transition to run the RNC six years ago; Matt Moore, one of the youngest party chairs in the nation in South Carolina; John Whitbeck, the Virginia GOP chair; and Joe Nosef, the Mississippi GOP chair.
The Washington Post also believes John Whitbeck is in the running for RNC chair:
Other names being circulated include Pence adviser Nick Ayers, South Carolina GOP chairman Matt Moore, Virginia GOP chairman John Whitbeck and Mississippi GOP chairman Joe Nosef.
It would be very exciting for Virginia Republicans to have John Whitbeck chairing the RNC!
