Matt Pinnell may be new RNC chairman


Media reports are speculating that Matt Pinnell, former chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party, may become the new chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Pinnell’s name is apparently on the short list of replacements for RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. Priebus has been named White House Chief of Staff for President-elect Donald Trump.

Pinnell is the state party director for the RNC and the liaison between state GOP organizations and the RNC. When Pinnell was Oklahoma RNC chairman, he was the youngest state chairman in the nation.
