In a stunning development, Ronna Romney McDaniel, the embattled Chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), is set to resign from her position following the February 24th South Carolina GOP primary, as reported by The New York Times.
This news comes after Donald Trump met with Ronna McDaniel at the Mar-a-Lago estate following his prediction of forthcoming “changes” within the RNC.
Following the meeting, President Donald Trump has announced plans to offer recommendations for the party’s growth after the upcoming South Carolina GOP primary.
Trump’s post-meeting statements on Truth Social were cryptic regarding McDaniel’s future, promising a decision on the RNC’s direction after the South Carolina Primary.
“Things are looking great in the Presidential Race of 2024 against Crooked Joe Biden. We have Leads, in many cases substantial, in virtually every Head-to-Head Poll. The Primary seems to be over, but I’ll be going to South Carolina next week to finish off a very unpopular Candidate. On Thursday, I’m heading to Nevada for the Nevada Caucus, where there are 26 Delegates – Hopefully, we’ll get most of them. In my successful run in 2016, the State of Michigan really came through – First time in Decades that it was won by a Republican, and it was headed up by my friend Ronna McDaniel. Ronna is now Head of the RNC, and I’ll be making a decision the day after the South Carolina Primary as to my recommendations for RNC Growth.”
