    DeSantis Airs Out Grievances with RNC, Chimes in on Who Should Be Chair

    Published on

    After the red tsunami dwindled to a trickle, Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis, is among many who believe the Republican National Committee’s leadership must change.

    In an interview with conservative activist Charlie Kirk released on Thursday, DeSantis stated, “we need a change” at the RNC and endorsed attorney and former Republican Party official Harmeet Dhillon to succeed current chair Ronna McDaniel in Friday’s party vote.

    “We’ve had three substandard election cycles in a row — ’18, ’20 and ’22,” DeSantis said, when asked about who he supported.

    “Huge majorities of the people think the country’s going in the wrong direction. That is an environment that’s tailor-made to make big gains in the House and the Senate — and the state houses all across the country.

    “Yet, that didn’t happen,” he added. “In fact, we even lost ground in the U.S. Senate.”

    Despite the fact that the GOP gained seats in the Senate during the 2018 midterm elections, this was owing to a favorable map, and they might have won in Arizona, Montana, Nevada, and West Virginia, where Democrats prevailed. The House of Representatives was lost by the Republicans.

    Despite regaining the House of Representatives in November by a razor-thin margin, Republicans underperformed in a variety of ways at the ballot box in 2020 and (particularly) 2022.

    Since 2017, McDaniel has served as the chair of the RNC, meaning she has been in charge of all of this.

    Dhillon, an activist attorney and co-chair of Women for Trump for the 2020 election, is one of two candidates challenging McDaniel’s bid for a fourth term. Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow and a conservative activist, is described by ABC News as waging a “long-shot candidacy.”

    Dhillon deserves at least a glance according to DeSantis.

    “I think we need to get some new blood in the RNC,” DeSantis told Kirk. “I like what Harmeet Dhillon has said about getting the RNC out of D.C. Why would you want to have your headquarters in the most Democrat city in America?”

    He added that it was “going to be very difficult to energize people to want to give money or want to volunteer their time with the RNC if they don’t see a change in direction.”

    The RNC race could be altered by DeSantis’s laudation of Dhillon. According to The American Conservative, the majority of her endorsements have come from state party chairs (including Arizona’s Kelli Ward, Texas’ Matt Rinaldi, and Virginia’s Morton Blackwell) and politicians who have opposed the GOP establishment, such as Florida’s U.S. Representatives Matt Gaetz and Anna Paulina Luna.

    Gaetz has been especially open in his criticism of party leadership, branding McDaniel, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell “McFailure.”

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    Gaetz was arguably the face of populist opposition to Kevin McCarthy taking the speaker’s gavel — and while that attempt to preclude his ascension eventually McFailed, the McCarthy speakership is likely to look a lot more conservative for the effort.CONTIUE READING…
