Ronna McDaniel Announces Resignation as RNC Chair

( – Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), said on Monday that she will step down on March 8th, capping her seven years leading the party.

During the party’s spring training convention in Houston, Texas, McDaniel, serving her fourth two-year term, announced that she would step down from the position to “allow our nominee to select a Chair of their choosing.”

“It has been the honor and privilege of my life to serve the Republican National Committee for seven years as Chairwoman to elect Republicans and grow our Party,” the 50-year-old said in a statement seen by ABC News, thus confirming previous speculation on the matter.

“I have decided to step aside at our Spring Training on March 8 in Houston to allow our nominee to select a Chair of their choosing,” she continued. “The RNC has historically undergone change once we have a nominee and it has always been my intention to honor that tradition.”

Early in February, former President Donald Trump—likely a Republican in 2024—endorsed Michael Whatley, the general counsel of the Republican National Committee and the current chair of the North Carolina GOP, to succeed McDaniel as the future RNC chair, as Breitbart News reported.

He supported Lara Trump, his daughter-in-law, to unseat current RNC co-chair Drew McKissick.

Party regulations require the chair and co-chair of the RNC to be of different sexes.

According to the ABC story, McDaniel’s resignation will go into effect just days before Super Tuesday, when several states with a large number of delegates will cast their presidential primary votes, and more than a week after her home state of Michigan will select a Republican nominee.

Since the Civil War, McDaniel has been the committee’s longest-serving chairman.

According to the AP, Trump selected her to lead the RNC chair immediately after the 2016 election. She is the niece of Utah Senator Mitt Romney and the former head of the Michigan GOP.
