It seems like we’re in for another twist in the political drama. After much speculation about her imminent departure, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has reportedly denied rumors of her resignation. Now, isn’t that a plot twist? In a leaked and currently unverified email sent to committee members, McDaniel clarified her stance, highlighted her ongoing commitment to the party’s success, and detailed the RNC’s extensive efforts ahead of the upcoming elections. The email was obtained by none other than Steve Bannon.
“Rumors to the contrary are simply not true. Nothing has changed,” McDaniel reportedly stated, addressing speculation about her stepping down. Talk about setting the record straight!
“I am still hard at work as RNC Chairwoman and building a machine that will elect Republicans up and down the ballot in November,” she added. Wow, talk about dedication!
McDaniel reassured members, “I am currently on the road fundraising, we’re staffing up with staff on the ground in 15 states.” Amid the swirling rumors and speculation, one source claimed that the RNC’s public reaffirmation of McDaniel’s leadership aims to “slow things down” due to uncertainties surrounding her potential replacement and other leadership roles within the committee.
This clarification comes amidst a whirlwind of reports suggesting her imminent departure. On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that McDaniel would be resigning after the South Carolina Republican primary, which is scheduled for February 24. The move would come just days after former President Donald Trump told Fox News that “changes” would be coming at the RNC in the coming days and weeks.
However, McDaniel seems to have other plans. The leaked email stated, “I want to thank you for your outpouring messages of support, I am proud of this Committee and our work together over the past several cycles. I know you all are working diligently in your states alongside state, local, and grassroots leaders towards victory this fall.”
I guess we’re just going to have to play this one by ear and see how it all plays out, but my guess would be that Charlie Kirk is probably in the ballfield. Here’s what he said:
NEW—Ronna McDaniel just sent out an email denying reports that she's agreed to step down, saying "rumors to the contrary are simply not true. Nothing has changed," and that nothing will be decided until "after South Carolina."
