In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Priebus said a Republican president is essential following two terms of a Democrat in control.
“We’re cooked as a party for quite a while if we don’t win in 2016,” he told the Examiner.
But Priebus adds he doesn’t anticipate a disastrous election for the GOP because “history is on our side.”
“Our job as a national party is to elect Republicans, and it generally means House, Senate, presidential,” Priebus told the Examiner.
