He’s super smart, a policy wonk, and generally nice guy, so he probably doesn’t stand a chance of winning.
Former state and national GOP Chair Reince Priebus has been talking with Wisconsin Republicans about a statewide bid in 2022, according to a source who’s spoken with him.
Politico reported this morning that Priebus was exploring a bid for guv in 2022.
But the source told WisPolitics.com that the conversations were sparked in part by people reaching out to Priebus about a statewide run. The source added the U.S. Senate could be an option, too, if Republican Ron Johnson doesn’t run for reelection.
“I think he’s more in the listening stage than a pitch stage,” the source said. “I think it’s more, ‘Why do you think I would be a good candidate? Why are you still looking for a candidate?’”
