WASHINGTON, D.C. — Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus declares Donald Trump is ready to beat Hillary Clinton.

Priebus spoke to roughly 1,500 people at the Values Voters Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.

“Just a few weeks ago, the media was writing off Donald Trump” Priebus mocked, noting that Trump has closed the gap in recent polls. “Donald Trump is ready to win.”

“Momentum is on his side. The electorate is on his side. It’s a change electorate,” he added. “Nobody here thinks that Hillary Clinton is the change candidate.”

“He’s brought millions of new voters into the GOP,” Priebus added of Trump, nothing his 14.5 million votes during the GOP primary. “He knows that Americans have had enough.”

Priebus stressed the need for the faith motivated voters to vote for Trump on Nov. 8 so that Clinton can’t put liberal Supreme Court justices on the Supreme Court. “She’s an extremist in her support for…abortion,” he said.
