Martin also pressed Priebus on a number of issues, including voting rights, sentencing reform, job creation and infrastructure. Preiebus told Martin “… I’m certainly aware of what is happening and I get involved in some of the discussion over legislation and direction on agenda, but generally I’m in charge of the campaign arm and we’re doing what we have to do to continue to be successful on the ground, the digital operation.”
Priebus went on to say, “I think you’re seeing Mitch McConnell and John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy really focus in on what an achievable simple agenda is going to look like starting in January.”
