Reince Priebus, who had served as Donald Trump’s first chief of staff while in the Oval Office, is considering making a bid for Wisconsin governor.

Politico reported Priebus has been contacting key GOP officials in the state during the past week and indicating he’s seriously looking at running in 2022. Wisconsin is Priebus’ home state.

Politico attributed its information to two unnamed sources. The website said Priebus’ top selling point would likely be the backing of Trump.

Former Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch is expected to run and has been viewed as a potential Republican front-runner. And incumbent Democrat Gov. Tony Evers is expected to seek another term.

The Hill noted Priebus is the former chairman of the Wisconsin state Republican Party and also served as chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Trump fired Priebus in July 2017, but the two remained close.
