Priebus Wins RNC Chairmanship

Priebus also denied Steele the chance at another two years on the job. The once-close relationship has frayed since Priebus began contemplating a run for the top job, and Steele endorsed Cino as he drooped out. Priebus's election is evidence of the independence from elected Republicans that many RNC members crave. When he was president, George W. Bush appointed his own chairmen, and members of the committee have for years wanted to elect one of their own. Cino had powerful backers from Capitol Hill, most notably in House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Boehner made phone calls on Cino's behalf in the days running up to the election.
