Reince Priebus announces in an e-mail that he has earned the support of Tom Ross, chairman of the Delaware Republican party, and Kim Lehman, the Republican national committeewoman from Iowa, bringing his total to 30 members. Priebus also comments on Gentry Collins’s calling it quits:
On his endorsement of my run for RNC Chairman, Tom Ross stated, “I wish to share with you my decision to endorse Reince Priebus because it is important that we unite behind one candidate leading into the RNC Winter meeting. Reince knows the strength of our Party lies in our people and state organizations. And his code of servant leadership is what the RNC desperately needs as we enter into a critical election cycle.”
Tonight, candidate Gentry Collins decided to drop out of the race for RNC Chairman – I wish God’s blessings to him and his wonderful family.
