If you’ve been looking for a Reince Priebus wiki, you needn’t look any further because you’ve found it right here! Reince Priebus has been catching the attention of the political world more and more lately, thanks to the all of the hoopla surrounding the Reince Priebus RNC speech and the comments he made regarding Melania’s “plagiarized speech.” He admitted to various media outlets that he would have fired Melania Trump’s speech writer. Reince Priebus’s Twitter account got him some attention as well, when he directed a particularly snide tweet at Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, regarding the now-infamous emails she had deleted. But, who is Reince Priebus? We are going to provide you with information on Reince Priebus’s wife, Reince Priebus’s kids, Reince Priebus’s family, and even Reince Priebus’s name origin!
Who Is Reince Priebus?
Reince Priebus is the current RNC chairman. The RNC—which stands for the Republican National Committee, as well as the Republican National Convention—is due to conclude its four-day convention tonight (Thursday, July 21). Along with the speakers who have spoken and those who are still due to speak tonight, people have started becoming curious about Chairman Reince Priebus. Here are three facts about him that you may not have known.
He’s Responsible for the Cancelled Clinton Biopics
Both CNN and NBC were planning to air biopics about Hillary Clinton, but both networks ultimately decided against it. Why? Well, because Reince Priebus made them. That’s right: Reince Priebus pointed out that a biopic on Clinton by these networks would act as free publicity and campaigning for Clinton. Some may think that the Hilary Clinton-Reince Priebus email debacle had something to do with it, but apparently Reince Priebus just pointed out that it may be difficult for CNN and NBC to air the Republican primary debates if they went ahead with an inevitably biased biopic about Clinton.
He and His Wife Have Been Together since High School
Reince Priebus’s wife Sally was his classmate in high school. That’s where the two began dating and eventually attended their prom together. They continued dating even after high school and officially got married in 1999. They used to live in their home state of Wisconsin, but eventually moved to Washington D.C. to be closer to the RNC Headquarters. The pair has two children together.
He’s Served Three Terms with a Democratic President
This may not seem like such a big deal, but it sort of is. It’s not rare for Republicans to be unhappy when there’s a Democratic president and often take it out on the leaders by demanding leadership changes. Likewise, for Democrats when there’s a Republican president. However, Reince Priebus has been the first RNC chairman to serve three consecutive terms with a Democrat in the White House. This means that people are generally very pleased with his leadership and have opted to re-elect him more than once. Reince Priebus’s salary is well earned in this case, and although the Reince Priebus net worth isn’t known, we suspect it’s pretty impressive, too!
