LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says former Gov. Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care law won’t be a problem should he win the GOP presidential nomination, even as Priebus attacked the federal health care law modeled after it.

Priebus said there’s a stark difference between a state program and a federal mandate and Romney’s vow to repeal the federal health care law should be enough to persuade conservative voters to back a Romney White House.

Priebus’ remarks came Friday in Las Vegas as he blasted the federal health care law on its second anniversary.

Priebus also said the prolonged primary in which Romney has struggled to gain his party’s support against rivals Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul will ultimately help the GOP win in November.
