URBAN FLOATED AS PRIEBUS REPLACEMENT: Could lobbyist Dave Urban replace Reince Priebus? That’s what former Trump campaign aides are talking about, according to POLITICO’s Josh Dawsey and Alex Isenstadt. Urban is one of several names on a list of potential replacements for Trump’s embattled chief of staff, along with senior White House aides Kellyanne Conway and Rick Dearborn and Trump’s top economic adviser, Gary Cohn. Urban declined to comment today.
— Unlike other candidates on the highly speculative shortlist, Urban is a longtime lobbyist. He’s worked at American Continental Group for the past 15 years, where he represented clients last year including 7-Eleven, AT&T, Comcast, Genentech, Drexel University and Hewlett-Packard, according to disclosure records.
