RNC Chair Reince Priebus is telling Trump supporters who don’t like the process to basically sit down and shut up.

According to The Hill:

“Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus on Tuesday pushed back on critics of the GOP’s presidential nominating process.

“This is a nomination for the Republican Party,” Priebus said during an interview on WTMJ in Wisconsin. “If you don’t like the party, then sit down. I mean, the party is choosing a nominee.”

Priebus offered the comments while explaining the allocation and selection of delegates at the local level, and the importance of relationships in locking up support from state-level officials.

The fight for delegates is increasing in importance as GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) battle toward what could be a contested convention this summer in Cleveland.

Cruz is seeking to keep Trump from clinching the nomination before the convention. In Cleveland, he hopes to wrest the nomination away at a convention vote.”
