RNC Chair Says The Republican Presidential Nominee Must Have Enough Delegates

In an interview with CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus discussed getting the Republican nomination by saying "History would show ... when someone's a little bit short, you let the process play out, and if it's that close, that's generally what happens."

Last week, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said, "I think we'll win before getting to the convention. And if we're 20 votes short or if we're 100 short, and we're at 1,100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400 ... I don't think you can say that we don't get it automatically."

Priebus rejected that train of thought by saying that when he ran for his current position, it took seven ballots before he had enough votes. Priebus explained, "No one gave it to me on the second or third ballot."
