Ronna McDaniel quells revolt to win reelection as chair of fractured RNC

Source: Washington Post

DANA POINT, Calif. ó The Republican National Committee on Friday voted to reelect Ronna McDaniel to a fourth two-year term as party chair, opting not to punish her for the GOPís recent string of electoral defeats.

McDaniel fended off a challenge from Harmeet Dhillon, a California lawyer who has represented former president Donald Trump and the unsuccessful Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, seizing on grass-roots furor demanding new leadership. McDaniel positioned herself as a steady hand and honest broker who can hold together the partyís factions and continue building out the RNCís financial and field resources. She prevailed on the first ballot, 111-51.

McDaniel argued that the RNC did its job in the midterms by providing the infrastructure for turning out voters. She acknowledged that the party struggled with its nominees ó a problem that many Republicans have attributed to influence of Trump, though McDaniel didnít address the former president in her remarks on Friday morning.

ďThe RNC, we donít get to pick the candidates, the voters do,Ē McDaniel said. ďWe donít get to call the plays, we donít get to say what the campaigns run on. But we do provide resoureces and we build a critical infrastructure to help candidates win.Ē McDaniel said Republicans won the popular vote by 4 million, equivalent to 297 Electoral College votes, and made inroads with minority voters.

3. Somehow...

I think we might get to see the RNC go down in flames anyway. Lindell 'has the evidence '. Will be sharing it with the American public on Monday. Just which Monday? isn't clear.

Wonder if Kari Lake disagreed with that one?

19. Ronna McDaniel isn't exactly anti-Chump

However it seems that Chump is anti-McDaniel, so there's that.
