RNC Chief Wants Fewer GOP Debates


Reince Priebus

Priebus also weighed in on the current dust-up over the presidential primary calendar. Florida's primary is currently slated for late January, which would place it ahead of other early state and would put it in violation of RNC rules. Priebus acknowledged that if Florida does move their primary, other states will adjust. "I'm sure if they stay in January, that all the other states will move up," he said. Priebus was also asked repeatedly about Donald Trump's persistent and erroneous questioning of the validity of President Obama's citizenship and said he believes that Obama was born Hawaii. But he did not chastise Trump for raising the issue. "I don't think it's an issue that moves voters," Priebus said. "It's an issue I don't personally get too excited about. I think it's being revived more by people in the media." "It's Donald Trump's right to get on TV to say what he wants to say, and it's up to voters to choose a nominee," he continued. -- Sean Sullivan contributed to this post
