RNC’s Priebus Touts Biden Over Hillary

On Wednesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus discussed the upcoming Republican presidential debate slated for Thursday night. But he also weighed in on the Democratic side of the ticket and the prospects of Vice President Joe Biden running against frontrunner Hillary Clinton for that party’s nomination.

“Certainly Joe Biden is far more likable,” Priebus said. “Hillary Clinton has a lot of problems. I think she is an opponent that’s easy to define … I think Joe Biden is someone that a lot of people, whether they like his politics or not, they like him, and likability – you can analyze politics all you want, likability is probably the number one issue on the ballot.”
