Ronna Romney McDaniel to Resign as RNC Chair after Super Tuesday

Ronna Romney McDaniel will formally resign from her position as the Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman after the March 5 Super Tuesday primaries.

The announcement comes weeks after President Donald Trump asked McDaniel to step down.

Earlier this month, Trump revealed his recommendations for changes within the RNC.

Trump proposed that North Carolina GOP chair Michael Whatley take over as chairman.

He also suggested that his daughter-in-law Lara Trump and campaign senior adviser Chris LaCivita also receive leadership positions.

McDaniel made the announcement in a statement, saying:

“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.

“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.

“The RNC has historically undergone change once we have a nominee and it has always been my intention to honor that tradition.”

“I remain committed to winning back the White House and electing Republicans up and down the ballot in November,” she added.

As he has moved closer to securing the Republican presidential nomination, Trump has been ramping up his calls for changes.

These changes include new leadership at the GOP’s national party committee.

In early February, the 45th president met with McDaniel at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump wrote in his Truth Social platform following the meeting that McDaniel was a “friend” but that he would be urging changes at the RNC after the Feb. 24 South Carolina GOP presidential primary.

McDaniel was nominated by Trump soon after his presidential election victory in 2016.

She won re-election in 2019, 2021, and January of last year.

While she ended up easily winning her latest election, McDaniel, the niece of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), has faced a vocal faction of detractors.

Many view McDaniel as too close to the party’s establishment wing.

When she won re-election last year, McDaniel said in an interview with Fox News that it would be her last two-year term steering the national party committee.
