RONNA SETS DATE: RNC Chair Will Step Down on March 8th, the 'Honor and Privilege of My Life'

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.26.24

Current RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has officially set a date for stepping down; she’s out as of March 8th. McDaniel says it has been “the honor and privilege of my life to serve the Republican National Committee for seven years as chairwoman to elect Republicans and grow our party.”

“I have decided to step aside at our spring training on March 8 in Houston to allow our nominee to select a chair of their choosing,” she said.

“The RNC has historically undergone change once we have a nominee and it has always been my intention to honor that tradition,” she said.

From The New York Post:

Trump, 77, personally picked McDaniel, the niece of two-time Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, to serve as the head of the Republican National Committee following his historic 2016 election.

But criticism ramped up over the past few years over her handling of the party’s finances and failed grassroots efforts to attract voters after Republicans lost Senate seats and governorships in 2022.

At the same time, the RNC had just $8 million in cash on hand as of Dec. 31 — the lowest since it had just over $5 million cash on hand at the end of 2014, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

In contrast, the Trump campaign finished off 2023 with $42 million cash on hand.

The former president hinted last Monday that McDaniel should vacate her position after the RNC reported decade-low fundraising numbers entering the presidential election year.

“I think she knows that, I think she understands that,” Trump said during a Newsmax interview when asked whether McDaniel should resign after three consecutive election cycles of Republican underperformance.

Trump will back North Carolina Republican Party chairman Michael Whatley as McDaniel’s replacement.
