In recent years, Republican National Committee Chair (RNC) Ronna McDaniel has had an unfavorable reputation, with her fellow conservatives wanting to remove her from her seat.
While many want to remove her from her position, many believe she will likely stay in office due to the upcoming election.
“I think it would make some people happy — maybe a lot of people happy — but I think in the end it would probably be detrimental to the party to try to have her removed by vote,” said Oscar Brock, the Republican national committeeman from Tennessee.
With the 2024 presidential election being less than a year away, many conservatives believe that replacing McDaniel this late in the race could spell disaster. Brock also added that he believed that it was impossible to come up with the two-thirds vote to replace her.
McDaniel is the longest-serving chair in more than a century, winning her fourth term earlier this year, even with constant criticism.
The chairwoman is no stranger to controversy. She has survived poor election nights and criticism from conservatives, including former President Donald Trump, who has been pushing for her to cancel the presidential debates and devote more effort to election integrity efforts.
Though she has faced criticism over and over again, McDaniel urged conservatives to come together after being re-elected.
“We need all of us. We heard you, grassroots. We know. We heard Harmeet, we heard Mike Lindell. But with us united and all of us going together, the Democrats are going to hear us in 2024 when we take back the White House and the Senate,” said McDaniel.
For many conservatives, McDaniel’s call for unity fell on deaf ears.
Last month, biotech entrepreneur and Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy’s campaign launched FireRonna.com, an online petition calling for her ouster. At the third primary debate in Miami, Ramaswamy took a shot at McDaniel during his time.
“We’ve become a party of losers at the end of the day,” Ramaswamy said at the third Republican presidential debate. “We have to have accountability in our party. For that matter, Ronna, if you want to come on stage tonight and look the GOP voters in the eye and tell them you resign, I will turn over, yield my time to you.”
McDaniel went on Fox News to speak with host Laura Ingraham of “The Ingraham Angle” to comment on attack, bringing up her track record of success.
With criticism of her performance increasing, McDaniel could possibly be on her last term, especially if Republicans lose the 2024 election.
