Updated...Priebus reveals he's already looking to "get on offense."
His Election Night tweet of "Wishing @BarackObama a happy retirement party tonight!" didn't come true, but virtually nobody in the GOP establishment is blaming Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for last week's election disaster.
In fact, Secrets learns that Priebus has received support for reelection to chairman from over 100 of 168 RNC members, an election lock since only 85 are needed to win.
Senior GOP officials said that Priebus, who raised enough money to wipe out a debt of $25 million he inherited and another $60 million for ads in the last election, is leaning toward running for reelection. He is expected to announce his plans later this week.
He is currently talking his future over with his wife, who prefers living back home in Wisconsin. Friends said that Priebus initially thought he would chair the party for just two years. But he sounded ready for a second term, telling Secrets that he is "just cleaning things up at the RNC, putting together a long term plan to study the election, move forward positively, correct and/or enhance, and get on offense."
