He said “it’s about the people out there and respecting the voices of the folks both in the states and on the floor of the convention.”

Priebus told Wallace that all of the candidates signed an agreement to back the nominee when they were given voter data from the RNC.

“It’s a data exchange agreement with the RNC,” he said. “One of the thing we say is ‘look we’ll give you these things but you have to agree that you’re going to support the party and the eventual nominee. They’ve all agreed to that.”

He added that the idea of someone other than the three current candidates becoming the nominee is possible.

Rules do allow for that to occur, but Priebus made it clear on CNN earlier that he didn’t think that would happen and that the nominee would be someone who is running.

While some have expressed doubt that Donald Trump could secure a victory in the general election Priebus told “Meet The Press” that he has no such reservations.
