Ronna Romney McDaniel (born March 20, 1973 (age 51)) announced on February 26, 2024 that she would resign as the chair of the Republican National Committee, having replaced Reince Priebus when he became the chief of staff for President Donald Trump. She is the niece of failed 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Unlike her uncle, however, McDaniel has been a supporter of President Trump, though she has also been a RINO Backer who criticized Steve King and falsely called him a "white supremacist."[1]

Calling herself "a suburban mom," McDaniel criticized the strongly pro-life part of the Republican Party in her parting remarks when she was replaced on March 8, 2024.[2] Instead, she urged an emphasis on “exceptions and reasonable limitations when a baby feels pain,” while opposing the Dem position of “no exceptions, no limits, not even when a baby feels pain.”[2]

She was criticized for failing to get-out-the-vote with any meaningful grassroots effort in November 2022, resulting in disappointing election outcomes for the Republican Party. The perception of "business as usual" by McDaniel against sophisticated ballot harvesting by Dems led to a spirited, and nearly successful, effort by outsider Harmeet Dhillon to pull a surprise upset against McDaniel's reelection. The continued reliance by archaic Republican National Committee leadership on high-paid consultants, television advertising without effect, meaningless Fox News Channel appearances, and a lack of real "boots on the ground" is frustrating many conservatives.

Indeed, calls mounted for her resignation after her failure to take preventative steps to address Democrat election fraud in both the 2020 presidential election and the 2022 Midterm elections.[3] She pledged to step down after her fourth term, to which she was elected on January 27, 2023, by a vote of only 111 votes compared with 51 for Dhillon and 4 for Mike Lindell.[4] Notably, the vote was by secret ballot.


It was reported in early October 2020 that McDaniel tested positive for the CCP virus.[5]
