Reince Priebus: Republicans need to unite "more than ever"

“Given the drama that we’ve had … I think now, more than ever, the role of the convention to assist in the unification of the party is going to be extremely important,” Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, said in an interview with the Journal Sentinel…

Priebus was interviewed before Grebe and McCallum made those statements. But asked about anti-Trump Republicans, he said they were effectively helping Democrats in this election.

“It’s going to take some people longer than others” to support the GOP nominee, he said. “I’m fine with that as long as in the end they come together and realize that another four years of (President Barack) Obama through Hillary Clinton is not a good future for our country.”

Priebus said the goals of the four-day convention that starts July 18 are to “unify the party, tell the story of Donald Trump, and make sure that we take action that strengthens the party for years to come.”
