In March, Ronna McDaniel Will Resign As Chair Of The RNC

Ronna McDaniel

Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, will formally leave her role on March 8, a few days following Super Tuesday. “I have decided to stand away during our Spring Training in Houston on March 8 so that our candidate may choose the Chair they want to serve as. I have always aimed to uphold the historical practice of the RNC changing once we had a nominee. In a statement provided to CNN, Ronna McDaniel stated, “I remain committed to taking back the White House and electing Republicans across the board in November.” 

Ronna McDaniel Offers To Resign Amid Increasing Hostilities With Trump

The newest development in the RNC’s changing of the guard is Ronna McDaniel’s declaration. Drew McKissick, the co-chair of the South Carolina GOP, stated in a separate statement shortly after McDaniel’s announcement that he would be resigning from his position as co-chair of the RNC. During his remarks on Saturday to commemorate his victory in the South Carolina primary, the former president expressed his desire for Kellyanne Conway, a former Trump adviser, to become a member of the RNC staff.

However, the devoted Trump supporter told Fox News that she was surprised by the request. McDaniel made the offer to resign from her job after the South Carolina primary, according to a reported story earlier this month. Her resignation coincides with escalating hostilities between the Republican National Committee and front-runner Donald Trump.

After McDaniel offered to step down, the former president supported his daughter-in-law Lara Trump as co-chair and supported Michael Whatley, the chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, to succeed her. Whatley is the committee’s attorney at the moment. Senior staff changes are common when the party selects a new presidential nominee in an election year, but Trump has not yet secured the necessary number of delegates to be the nominee, and former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley is still challenging him in the primary.
