Republican Leaders Want Priebus To Stick Around

Top Republican leaders have reached out in recent days to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus to ask him to stay on for a second term.

A source close to Priebus tells us Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell -- who heads the Republican Governors Association -- have all called Priebus over the last few days to ask him to run for a second term.

Priebus hasn't formally declared he will seek a second two-year term, but he's widely expected to run again. He has reached out to RNC allies to gauge support, and if he decides to re-up, he would likely make the announcement the week after Thanksgiving.

No other challengers have yet emerged. Winning another term would require a majority of the RNC's 168 members. Priebus won the job after the 2010 election cycle, ousting incumbent chairman Michael Steele and several other candidates.
