Reince Priebus is not a happy guy today. After rumors of his fights with Anthony Scaramucci became public a few days ago, things have spilled out into public view, and gotten vicious.
Today, Anthony Scaramucci was on TV attacking Priebus and his cohorts in the White House.
Priebus is by no means as rich as Scaramucci or other Presidential cronies, but he also won’t be out on the street if he gets fired. So what is Reince Priebus net worth? Read on…
Reince Priebus has been a Washington DC political insider for a while now. He originally is from Wisconsin, ad was generally a local figure before he gained national attention for becoming the RNC chair in 2011.
That job set the stage for his ascent in the Republican establishment.
Priebus was a regular on talking-head news channels and on the radio, but it wasn’t until the election of 2018 that Priebus had an opportunity to break out of his relatively unknown position.
After Trump won the election, he chose Priebus to satisfy the establishment arm of the Republican party, and Priebus came in to the White House as chief of staff.
Top people in the Trump administration earn slightly below $200,000 per year, but this isn’t where most of Priebus’s wealth comes from.
During his tenure as RNC chief, Priebus earned up to $225,000 per year as a base salary. That doesn’t include his bonuses, which in 2018 were $175,000. And he got free housing worth over $50,000 per year.
Priebus also received around $500,000 from his law firm when he severed his ties in 2018. He also has a few hundred thousand in bank and mutual fund accounts.
In total we estimate Reince Priebus net worth at a bit over $1 million.
