Ronna McDaniel, the Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman, recently announced that she would not seek a third term as president of the RNC. McDaniel, who was appointed to her position in 2017, has been the first woman to lead the RNC since its founding in 1856.
McDaniel has been an integral part of the RNC’s success during her tenure, helping to raise over $1 billion for the party and leading the RNC’s efforts to re-elect President Donald Trump in 2020. In her announcement, McDaniel thanked the President and the RNC for their support and said that she was proud of the progress made during her time as RNC Chairwoman.
McDaniel’s decision to step down from her position has been met with mixed reactions from both sides of the aisle. While some Republicans have praised her accomplishments and thanked her for her service, others have criticized her for not doing enough to advance the party’s agenda.
Regardless of her critics, McDaniel’s tenure at the RNC has been successful and her departure will leave a void at the top of the party. As the RNC begins the search for a new chairperson, many are wondering who will take the helm of the Republican Party and lead them into the future.
