RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel About to be Thrown Out

RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel About to be Thrown Out

The Republican National Committee (RNC) will soon hold an election to name its new chairperson. Considering the GOP’s lackluster performance in recent elections, chances are slim the group will choose to re-elect its current chairperson, Ronna McDaniel. 

Though rank-and-file Republicans have no direct impact on RNC elections, surveys suggest that fewer than a quarter of GOP voters support McDaniel. 

RNC member Roger Villere Jr., a member from Louisiana, confirmed that his state party signed a no-confidence resolution against McDaniel last weekend. “The grassroots is firmly supporting a change,” said Villere. “Every vote, every call every day, I hear people who want someone other than Ronna…we’ve had three cycles where we’ve underachieved significantly, and it’s just time.”

Similar calls are being voiced in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, and Texas. 

“As we’ve seen with recent events on Capitol Hill, the era of the establishment is over,” adds Mark Meckler, President of Convention of the States Action. “The grassroots are pushing back and making their voices heard. And – contrary to what Ronna McDaniel has stated publicly – the leadership of the RNC should ultimately reflect the will of the Republican voter and move Republicans forward at the ballot box.”

McDaniel, known for her commitment to election integrity, support for minority communities, and desire to reign in Big Tech, has argued that it is not the responsibility of the RNC to get people elected. 

“The RNC is infrastructure…We’re the stadium,” said McDaniel. “The players play in our stadium. The infrastructure is necessary for victory. And that’s why I want to stay on.”

McDaniel’s decision to run for a fourth two-year term was allegedly driven by support among members. And though she was wholeheartedly supported by then-President Donald Trump in 2017, the former president has made no endorsement this year. 

During an interview with Fox News last month, McDaniel said her support among the group was “pretty solid” and claimed she had been endorsed by over 100 RNC members (though most of these endorsements are months old).

The 168-member committee will hold a forum in California starting on January 25th, during which they will hear closing statements from McDaniel and her primary rival, Harmeet Dhillon.

Dhillon, a lawyer and California native who served as a legal adviser on Trump’s re-election campaign, has won support from Republicans seeking to distance themselves from the so-called “Establishment.”

Dhillon had called for an open forum rather than a closed debate, while McDaniel said she would only answer questions in front of the people who would be participating in the vote. “[The absence of press coverage] sends a very bad signal to RNC donors and grassroots leaders that the current chair is too weak or afraid to debate her own record,” said Dhillon.

The forum, which will be closed to the press and the public, will culminate with a final vote on January 27th. A handful of other candidates have thrown their hats in the ring (including My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell), though none have the level of support enjoyed by Dhillon or McDaniel.

    Wow! What tremendously myopic statements! 1) “…it is not the responsibility of the RNC to get people elected. ” The data sure does back up her statement! But then why bother to exist? If all the RNC wants to do is be an empty stadium, heck, go rent a stadium once a year and caucus. Better yet, most major cities have civic arenas for rent!!! I think the RNC’s whole existence should be about “getting Republicans elected”!

    Ronna McDaniel is worthless and has to GO !!! Harmeet Dhillon seems like she’s on the ball and could get things done . One problem is , you have so many nitwit RINO voters in their states that keep putting azzwipe RINOS like Romney , Collins , Murkowski , ” EYE PATCH ” Crenshaw etc . back into office . The RNC needs to start coming down hard on these RINOS that constantly kneel in front of the socialist democrats !!!

Guns at the polling place? Armed takeovers of state capitols? Nations Capitol Insurrection? Shoot their houses up? Oh wait, been there, seen that, done that. This never gets old watching you shoot yourself in the foot. Literally.

  6. Harmeet Dhillon is a RINO too, Vote Zeldin or Lindell

    Ronna McDaniel (niece of Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, who she helped during his 2012 presidential campaign)is a RINO
    and Harmeet Dhillon is a RINO too.
    This is more Dog and Pony show by the RINO Republican Establishment. Replacing 1 RINO for another RINO. And hoping voters are too stupid to research and know the difference.

    “11/29/22 – Hired by the RNC, Harmeet Dhillon Teams Up with Mitch McConnell, Contracted Enforcer Who Destroyed the Tea Party”

    “In a transparent effort at damage control, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has enlisted Harmeet Dhillon and Henry Barbour to lead an internal club effort under the auspices of performing a midterm autopsy.”

    “How could Harmeet Dhillon possibly claim representation for the grassroots (MAGA) activists, while teaming up with Henry Barbour who is the paid political operative intent on destroying those same grassroots (MAGA) activists?

    Lee Zeldin (Republican New York congressman who recently lost his race for governor to Gov. Kathy Hochul) and
    Mike Lindell (CEO of MyPillow) are Conservatives and either would be a much better choice for Republican National Committee Chairperson.
