FIGHT !!! - FIGHT !!! - 'Priebus Defends Christie Against RGA Resignation Calls' - TheHill

Priebus defends Christie against RGA resignation calls
By Mario Trujillo - TheHill


The chairman of the Republican National Committee is defending New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) after calls for him to step down as head of the Republican Governors Association.

Reince Priebus said Christie should not resign his post after former Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli became the most high-profile Republican to call for him to step aside.

I don’t know of a better governor right now to lead that effort that is just a powerhouse across the country,” Priebus told CNN. “I have seen him in rooms and I have seen him turn crowds on and his job is to raise a lot of money for the RGA and he can do that and I am sure the RGA is proud to have him.”

When asked whether Priebus agreed with Cuccinelli, he said, “No, Not at all.”

And I hope that a very loud group of Republicans continue to demand his resignation the entire time he is there.
