CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

Reince Priebus has been elected to lead the Republican National Committee for another two years.

The 40-year-old RNC chairman from Wisconsin ran unopposed in his bid for a second term, which begins less than three months after what most Republicans consider a disastrous election cycle. The GOP in November lost a competitive presidential election and gave up seats in the House and Senate.

The Republican National Committee membership voted overwhelmingly Friday to re-elect Priebus at their annual winter meeting in Charlotte, N.C. National committeeman Mark Willis of Maine tried to challenge Priebus but could not muster the backing of the three states needed to qualify for the ballot.
