POLITICO
— Trump zeroes in on RNC chair pick  The choices have narrowed as the factions inside Trump Tower jockey for control. – ELIANA JOHNSON, KENNETH P. VOGEL and ALEX ISENSTADT
http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/trump-zeroes-in-on-rnc-chair-pick-232397
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The two sides represent the establishment and populist elements of Trump’s political world, and they have been jockeying over who will control the committee for nearly two weeks now. But a transition aide said that’s likely to come to an end soon, with a decision expected either Friday or Saturday. The 168 members of the RNC’s executive committee will officially elect the party’s chair at their meeting in January, but the imprimatur of an incoming president is typically decisive — as a number of committee members acknowledged on Thursday. “I will support whomever the president-elect tells me to support,” said New Jersey committeeman Bill Palatucci, a longtime ally and confidant of Gov. Chris Christie.)
