McDaniel Reelected As RNC Chair Despite DeSantis Calling For Change

• by Tyler Durden

The win makes McDaniel the longest-serving GOP chair since the 19th century, and will now join Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in formulating a strategy in the hopes of recovering from the GOP's dismal performance in the November midterm elections.

The win comes despite comments from increasingly influential Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who said on Thursday that it's time for Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel to give up the mantle and make way for new leadership.

"We've had three substandard election cycles in a row: '18, '20, and '22," DeSantis told TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk in an interview. "Given the political environment of a very unpopular president in Biden, huge majorities of the people think the country is going in the wrong direction—that is an environment that's tailor-made to make big gains in the House and the Senate and in state houses all across the country, and yet that didn't happen."
