“It’s very difficult to make a decision, because we have got real serious players that are vying for the nomination of our party,” he said.

“Whoever the delegates of the party choose, that is going to be the nominee, and our party is going to be behind that person 110 percent to save this country.”

Priebus said his role as RNC chairman is to ensure that the nominee has the resources needed to win the White House.

Republicans have one of their most crowded presidential fields in recent memory with 12 candidates. Trump is firmly in the lead in national polls and in the first primary state of New Hampshire.
