Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus has been called a tough, consistent and nimble force in the GOP since taking on the position five years ago. Mr. Priebus also proved himself an invaluable stalwart in President-elect Donald Trump’s lengthy but successful campaign for the White House.

Buzz is growing in the press: Mr. Preibus, 44, appears to be on the short list to become a senior presence in the Trump White House.

“He is very likely Chief of Staff. Trump listens to him,” an inside source tells Zeke J. Miller, a political reporter for Time Magazine who also notes that Mr. Priebus “a Wisconsinite, is a key ally of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.”

NBC, Bloomberg, Reuters, Politico and U.S. News & World Report are floating similar stories, some with some further speculation.

“If Priebus leaves the RNC, two close Trump allies could be considered to take his position,” NBC said in its own analysis. “Trump’s team is talking about former campaign manager and current CNN contributor Corey Lewandowski or current deputy campaign manager David Bossie as possible options.”
