WASHINGTON – This week, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus joined Gov. Nikki Haley and other public officials in South Carolina to call for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from state house grounds. Chairman Priebus issued the following statement:

“Now is the time to do what is right, and I support the call by Gov. Haley and South Carolina leaders to remove the Confederate battle flag from state house grounds,” said Chairman Priebus.

“This flag has become too divisive and too hurtful for too many of our fellow Americans. While some say it represents different things to different people, there is no denying that it also represents serious divisions that must be mended in our society. For South Carolina, taking down this Confederate flag is a step in mending those divisions. Our future must be better than our past. We are not meant to be a country divided by racial tensions; we are meant to be a country that stands united.

“Our prayers are with the people of South Carolina during these difficult times."
