Many are still reeling from the devastating midterm election where the GOP could not establish a solid majority in Congress in the midst of an economic recession and a president with a dismal approval rating.
Inflation is at an all-time high and Republicans couldn’t get a majority in the Senate.
There is enough blame to spread around like manure, but plenty should go to the Republican National Committee which failed its supporters.
Is it time to clean the house?
Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel promised a red wave, which never materialized. She certainly doesn’t have much of a track record to defend herself, she led during the losses in 2018, and 2020, and this performance in 2022.
Former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is a name being thrown around to challenge McDaniel, and another person who could throw their hat into the ring is Attorney Harriet Dhillon.
Politico wrote this, “Ronna McDaniel is about to draw a challenge to her post as Republican National Committee chair.
Harmeet Dhillon, an RNC committeewoman whose firm represents Donald Trump, is prepping a bid for party chair, according to two people familiar with her planning. Dhillon has been talking with fellow RNC members about a prospective run, and those close to Dhillon say a formal launch could come within the next few days.”
Dhillon said this herself, “After three successive terms of underwhelming results at the polls for the GOP, all the while with leaders congratulating ourselves for outstanding performance, I feel that we owe it to our voters to have a serious debate about the leadership of the party and what we must change to actually win in 2024.”
This could become the most serious challenge that McDaniel could receive, not like the long-shot challenge launched by My Pillow CEO, Mike Lindell.
Regardless, the base that McDaniel had is certainly slipping away.
