PHILADELPHIA (NBC News) - Republicans are setting up their own shop in Philadelphia this week.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and the Trump campaign are running a "pro-Trump and anti-Clinton" conference. They say it gives people in Philly an alternative.

"We are here to give a voice to Americans who have had enough of the Clintons' cronyism and corruption," Priebus said of the conference. "Our mission is to expose the long and scandalous history of Hillary and Bill Clinton right here in the Democrats' own backyard."

Priebus also commented on the DNC email leak, calling it a "dramatic illustration of what we already know."
