STEVE BANNON (HOST): Pull the camera back and tell us why is it important in your opinion to have fundamental change at the RNC, sir

SCOTT PRESLER (GUEST): Well, under the current leadership of Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, we've had three cycles of losses, six years of losses. We lost the Senate, we lost the House, we lost the presidency. And now after what should have been a huge win for the Republican Party, we only have a narrow majority in the House and I think the majority of Republicans in the country see that it's time for change.

PRESLER: Well, the RNC has no credibility.
