And despite a disappointing string of elections and calls for “new blood” from prominent Republicans, Ronna McDaniel has been selected to remain as RNC chair with 111 votes.

McDaniel, the niece of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), ran the RNC while Trump was president. She dropped the “Romney” from her name when she became RNC chairwoman in 2017, making her just the second woman to ever hold the position.
BREAKING: Ronna McDaniel re-elected as RNC Chair.
The RNC is dead.

The RNC is made up of elitist cowards and grifters who ignore the grassroots and donors and vote strictly to amplify their own graft and corruption.
They have been bought.
This is why we lose.

The RNC has re-elected Ronna McDaniel. Maybe if we steer the Titanic directly into the iceberg a fourth time we’ll be able to sail her forward victoriously!
