The chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) says no one should pity him for his role overseeing the GOP presidential primary.

“No one should feel sorry for me,” Reince Priebus said in an interview with CNN that aired Wednesday. "I signed up for this.


“People assume, ‘You must be miserable, you have a horrible job,’” he told host Jamie Gangel. "I don’t see it that way.

“I’m not pouring Bailey’s on my cereal [or] sitting here trying to find the Johnny Walker. This is fun. Being in the middle, you have to accept the fact that there are a thousand opinions. I’m so used to it that I don’t even care.”

“Of course not — that’s insanity,” he said when asked if there’s plot against the Republican presidential front-runner.

“There’s nothing to steal. Either you have the votes or you don’t. I’m going to be at peace with whoever the nominee is because I know that they’re going to beat [Democratic presidential front-runner] Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonJeff Flake: Republicans 'should hold the same position' on SCOTUS vacancy as 2016 Momentum growing among Republicans for Supreme Court vote before Election Day Warning signs flash for Lindsey Graham in South Carolina MORE.”

“He would kill me,” he said. "I wouldn’t do it. You have to actually want to be the president of the United States to run [and] he doesn’t want to right now.

“It’s not going to happen,” Priebus added of a Ryan White House run. "He doesn’t have the floor operation to get it done.”

Trump has repeatedly derided the GOP’s presidential primary rules as “rigged” against him as a political outsider.

Reports emerged Wednesday that the billionaire’s campaign predicts it will secure more than 1,400 delegates before the GOP convention later this summer. At least 1,237 are needed for avoiding a contested convention in Cleveland.
