Is There Still Time to Get Ronna McDaniel to Bow Out? – Watch
It may already be too late, but a grassroots group of RNC committee members are trying to stop Ronna McDaniel from winning a fourth term as chairperson of the organization.
Harmeet Dhillon is a worthy challenge for the head of the Republican National Committee, and he just may be inching his way to an upset.
The first call for McDaniel to step down from leadership came from Roger Villere of Louisiana and Solomon Yue of Oregon. Villere revealed that McDaniel had promised committee members at a recent meeting that she would not be seeking reelection in 2023. But, ironically, after the humiliating midterm election, she decided to go back on her word and run for an additional term. She should have run to hide!
Since Villere and Yue first became voices in opposition, there has been a trickle of committee members and state committee members who have withdrawn their support for McDaniel. Some have transferred their support to Dhillon, but others are waiting to see how things turn out.
Texas Railroad Commission candidate Tom Slocum is the latest voice in opposition to McDaniel. He is calling for new leadership and in the tweet below you can see his rationale.
Texas now joins the Republican state committees in Arizona and Tennessee casting a no-confidence vote for McDaniel.
And there are now sources indicating that the California GOP executive committee very recently voted to support Dhillon.
Conservative commentator Erick Erickson wrote, “If she were an SEC football coach, she would have been out a long time ago.”
Scott Presler, a grassroots activist, has been working outside of the RNC to create momentum against McDaniel forcing her to bow out. He has spent a good deal of time working in inner cities that have been hit hard by awful Democratic policies. He tweeted this week that Nebraska GOP chairman Eric Underwood had withdrawn his support of McDaniel.
So the pressure is mounting with very little time to spare.
It’s time for new leadership!

Maryland Chair, Dirk Haire — who Chairwoman McDaniel had listed on her endorsement letter — has retired.
Haire will be replaced by Nicole Beus Harris.
This is a potential pick up opportunity.
