Reince Priebus defends President Trump at state House GOP fundraiser; Mayoral candidate Garry McCarthy attends

Former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus delivered a defense of his former boss, President Donald Trump, in Chicago Tuesday night and said the media should stop reporting on gossip and minutia and focus on Trump’s successes.

Priebus keynoted a major fundraising event for Illinois House Republican leader Jim Durkin of Western Springs at a Magnificent Mile hotel, an event that also drew GOP Gov. Bruce Rauner and Chicago mayoral candidate Garry McCarthy.

Priebus, who served a six-month stint as chief of staff when Trump was inaugurated before being ousted in favor of former Gen. John Kelly, urged Republicans not to be distracted by criticism of the White House or the president’s style and instead concentrate on results.

“I’ve had the honor of serving our president and while all the books are being written and all of the issues that people want to talk about on 24/7 cable, I just gotta say, you know, you look at the results of this president,” said Priebus, a former national Republican chairman from Wisconsin before entering the Trump White House.
