“I am so blessed,” Priebus said as he took the helm of the RNC. ”We can’t wait to get to work.”

He also thanked the other candidates, and Michael Steele in particular.”We have to get on track and together we can beat Barack Obama in 2012. . . . We must come together,” he said. Priebus later said he would serve “in humility.”
