GOP chairman says Trump `getting into a groove'

(AP) -

The Republican Party chairman says Donald Trump is "getting into a groove" in his campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Reince Priebus is predicting Trump will pull even with Clinton in polls by around Labor Day.

Priebus tells ABC's "This Week" that "Trump's been disciplined and mature, and I think he's going to get this thing back on track."

Trump shook up his campaign this past week, installing a new chief executive, Stephen Bannon -- former head of conservative news site Breitbart News.

Priebus was shown a clip of Bannon talking approvingly of plans "to destroy" the congressional leadership. The GOP chairman says he's "never happy" with criticisms of "great leaders" like House Speaker Paul Ryan.

But Priebus says: "People can pivot into different roles and ultimately the person in charge of Donald Trump's campaign is Donald Trump."
