Former Trump Chief of Staff Reportedly Considering Gubernatorial Run

Former Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus is reportedly exploring a bid to challenge Wisconsin Democratic Gov. Tony Evers in 2022.

Priebus has been calling GOP officials throughout his home state, Politico first reported, signaling that he is mulling a challenge to Evers, who was elected in 2018.

Priebus chaired the Republican National Committee when Trump ran for president in 2016, and became his first chief of staff after he took office. Trump fired Priebus in July 2017.

Though the former RNC chairman is a top ally of former House Speaker Paul Ryan and former two-term Republican Gov. Scott Walker, he is likely to face a crowded Republican primary if he decides to run. Former GOP Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch has been exploring a gubernatorial bid, and State Senate President Chris Kapenga has floated a potential campaign as well.
