A Man With Many Friends: Priebus Tapped As Chief Of Staff

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In the year of the outsider, Reince Priebus was the face of the Republican establishment.

Yet the Republican National Committee chairman would come to earn the trust and confidence of President-elect Donald Trump, who on Sunday named Priebus as his chief of staff, along with flame-throwing media executive Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist.

The position puts Priebus at the power center of the new Trump administration. The 44-year-old Wisconsin political operative will help guard access to the president-elect, guide policy and political decisions, and if past practice holds true, will often be, along with Bannon, the last person Trump consults before making major decisions.

Priebus has no governing experience in Washington.
