Many Republicans are excited about Reince Priebus taking over the reins as chairman of the Republican National Committee. His first task will be to mend ties with big-time donors who had harsh battles with his predecessor, Michael Steele, Politico reports.

Priebus,donors,RNC,Michael SteelePriebus has scheduled meetings over the next two weeks with some of the party’s most respected former finance chairmen.

Those chairmen include Mel Sembler and Al Hoffman of Florida, Larry Bathgate of New Jersey, Howard Leach of San Francisco, Dwight Schar of Washington, D.C., and former ambassador Sam Fox.

“All of those men signed off on a letter to RNC members during the chairmanship race urging Steele’s ouster without endorsing any of the candidates — including Priebus — as his replacement,” Politico reports.

“Just by attending the meeting, the party wise men will be lending their gravitas to the new chairman, which would send a powerful signal to wary fundraisers who don’t know him yet.”
