Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus predicted on Sunday the GOP presidential nominee is likely to be one of the three candidates still in the race.
Still, in an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Priebus left open the possibility of a nominee who isn’t currently in the race if the Republican National Convention this summer in Cleveland drags on for several ballots.
“At that point, if you get into a multi-ballot convention where you’ve got five or six or seven rounds, it’s possible a person can be nominated that’s not one of the three,” Priebus said. “But my position is — and…I think it’s absolutely correct — our nominee is likely to be one of the three people running.”
Still in the GOP race are New York real estate mogul Donald Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
