The RNC has spoken; Ronna McDaniel will continue to serve as chair of the RNC.
It was a three-way race between current chair Ronna McDaniel, Harmeet Dhillon, and Mike Lindell. In the end, McDaniel was elected chair overwhelmingly; “the Democrats are going to hear us in 2024,” McDaniel said in her victory speech.
From NBC News:
McDaniel easily secured a majority of the 168 votes needed to win, with 111 votes compared to 51 for Dhillon, four for MyPillow founder Mike Lindell and one for former Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., who was not a candidate.
McDaniel is now on track to be the longest-serving GOP chair since the 19th century. She joins Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., in staving off challenges to their leadership following Republicans’ disappointing performance in the November midterm elections.
