Priebus Rebuilds the RNC

That Reince Priebus still heads the Republican National Committee is unusual, the Wall Street Journal reports.

"No national head of either party in the modern era has retained that seat after a loss in the presidential election. Some now expect him to keep the job through the 2016 election, which would make him the longest-serving GOP chairman in nearly 30 years."

"The chairman has poured most of his energies into raising money -- he said he spends five hours a day on donor calls -- and into building out the party's infrastructure, including an aggressive, state-by-state outreach to minority voters... The GOP ended June with $7 million more in cash than the Democrats had, the federal records show."
