Ronna McDaniel Fights to Remain RNC Chair as Republicans Decide Leadership Amid Calls for Change

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is set to meet in the coming days to decide the fate of its leader, with the current chair, Ronna McDaniel, seeking to hang on to the position.

The election of the RNC chair is a crucial test of the party’s leadership and direction, as the party faces internal divisions and struggles to regain control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections.

McDaniel, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump in 2017, has been a divisive figure in the party. Some Republicans, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, have called for “new blood” to lead the RNC, arguing that the party needs a change in leadership.

The election of the RNC chair will be a secret ballot, with the party’s 168 members voting for their preferred candidate.

The outcome of the vote will be a key indicator of the Republican Party’s direction and could give an indication of how it will approach the 2022 midterm elections.

The RNC chair vote will take place on Friday and is being closely watched by political observers across the country, as the party seeks to find a leader who can unite the party and lead it to victory in the upcoming elections.
