Transcript for RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Says Florida Must Pay
Jon Karl has been doing a subway series. And subway -- times in a subway sometimes not not necessarily included his latest victim rights previously chairman of the Republican National Committee take -- -- Mr. previous welcome to the pizza edition of the subway series assets and interest think pizza and we're here with the pizza we have the seasonal -- first ever. To enjoy this -- -- walking out. It's a bilateral Wisconsin's style pizza but it it's and it it it tastes pretty good -- so you've been busy nine million dollars raised in the lives. -- -- -- we've we've done well we've turned the corner I think that that the donors are coming back to the NC I think that if you look. Closer better numbers you'll see that were running I think a very functional operational party but -- -- such a message as He still broke. -- -- the argument you have the -- to be relevant and we're doing better and I think we're going to be there. By the end of the year and we're in a couple big months in November and December and obviously picture's going to be here forest. So have -- been as He watched these debates. 11. Republican but it is -- -- Jerry Springer style approach to politics. What happened to Reagan's eleventh commandment I mean these guys are written that I mean that they're just -- each well I mean -- them and Reagan had. A primary I mean He He ran against George Bush He had other books that were in in this -- -- this is nothing new I come from Wisconsin well I don't. -- -- -- -- I don't think so I actually think the primaries are good thing for our party I think that if you look at what Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton went through this is child's play and I don't know where does that mean you're fighting each other city. John them and they're fighting through the end of June right -- I've heard concerns expressed privately. From friends of yours -- If it if this goes along and you know Romney is working towards towards the nomination. It it did that there's a Rick Perry all the money he's raised in Oklahoma will will will go out just -- it was. Negative barrage of ads like he's -- very effectively taxes. And could have lasting damage to your nominee you know concerned at all about. I think I think this thing's going to be you know -- -- going to be some punches throng. But I don't think this is going to end up becoming a primary and it's so -- out of control -- -- sabotaging. Wrong candidacy and I think everyone's on the same page. As has been said numerous times on that stage at the end of the -- any one of those people once these veterans president. I don't think it looks good form I just think it's a matter of it's getting -- which will be you know probably sometime in April are made and will move forward and defeat this president. You think of the doors now -- closed mean we did that the Republican nominee be one of those people yeah -- no question that threatened villages. -- -- there there are are of the candidates are out there. And that Jonathan -- but that's what happens when people. Are absolutely desperate to defeat this president look there people who support Mitt -- -- people who support. Passionately Rick -- and Herman Cain on the line. -- -- Paul -- doesn't mean. That there's dissatisfaction. With whomever ends up winning. That primary just means -- look I've got my favorite that's also leave no doubt a lot about Mitt Romney running for five years never really cracking 125%. Among Republicans you think -- If He gets the nomination there's no doubt that this party will unite behind me wrong and percent whoever that nominee so mean there will be on -- percent. Unanimous support within the Republican party for nominee because this president that we. Everyone understands -- to be defeated and examples. I think that He has -- love affair with big government and I think that the people of this country know that we need to rein in government here back on -- and no intentions but he's not so. I think he's in love with the government but but but you won't -- -- -- you're not saying noted that. You know up here's what I'm saying I'm saying they in this president. Can't stop spending money and thinks that stimulus plans -- the way to spend their way out of -- -- an economic trouble and I don't think the answer is to take other people's money and massive amounts when He Gordy had one example one in the first stimulus that didn't work. -- then come back. -- other big stimulus and spending more taxpayers money to spend ourselves out of economic disaster. For the solutions that -- last thing that -- had to deal this nightmare of the primary count. What happened I mean why and now we're fatally that is exactly should be saying thanks a me. We're doing everything straight you're welcome you fix Nevada put you still have what exactly what you didn't -- -- happen well that's not what we're gonna have. I follow on January 13 in addition to being totally positive -- -- as interest statement -- this is a total pot. You know floor well wait a minute -- -- it 49. Out of fifty states including six territories. Followed. Line by line. The RNC rules 49 out of fifty -- well let me focus on the fiftieth Florida what happened and how do you portion well I mean my pocket out of the convention. Well it's. A lot the convention but -- -- rule. We will automatically lose half their delegates wouldn't. In which He and the Internet and -- of the arts and and there's no discretion there's no coming back there's no. You know there there is no whom -- that's gonna happen in two months the nominees and -- thing about it. They're gonna lose half their delegates that's a pretty serious penalty than anyone -- did the delegates won't be able to show up on the floor news -- and a half. There there's no such thing it remained there for donations going to be half the size we -- out on the conventional threat the threat they're gonna lose half their delegates are not going to be you come reentry. The delegate strength. Now the other for the other three primary states -- -- in the early part states though there also gonna lose half of their delegates even though. It's not necessarily their fault but that just goes to show them -- any discretion on -- And the penalties there and he's going. And -- to us.
