Zeldin Sees No Path to Victory, Announces He Will Not Run for RNC Chair Position

With an effective counterinsurgency operation currently ongoing by RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel and her friend & contractor Harmeet Dhillon, former Congresman Lee Zeldin announces he will not be running for RNC Chair in January 2023.

Within a Twitter announcement, Mr Zeldin writes, “RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel should not run for a 4th term. I won’t be running for RNC Chair at this time with McDaniel’s reelection pre-baked by design, but that doesn’t mean she should even be running again. It’s time the GOP elects new leadership! It’s time for fresh blood!

Mr Zeldin also provided a full statement:

Lee Zeldin’s exit from consideration leaves three remaining candidates for the position. Current RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, current RNC lawyer Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.

Ronna McDaniel has previously claimed the support of more than 100 of the 163 national RNC committee members, far more than would be needed for another two-year term.  However, just in case Ronna is not successful, Mrs. Harmeet Dhillon has positioned herself to run as a block to any outside RNC entry as would be represented by Mike Lindell.

In the background, four days before she officially announced her entry into the RNC race, on December 1st Mrs. Dhillon registered “DhillonForRNC.com” as a proactive measure to support her upcoming announcement.

The decision to set up the online infrastructure followed Dhillon’s previous announcement that she would be teaming up with Mississippi Republican National Committee person, Henry Barbour.

With the Georgia senate contest now in the rear view, Mrs. Dhillon, Mrs McDaniel and the major donors to the RNC can get down to the business of forward-looking operations; the focus that really matters for the financial stakes at the RNC.

The voting for the RNC chairmanship will take place during the winter meeting of the RNC in late January 2023.  In addition to selecting the chair, the RNC members will be voting on new party rules, regulations, processes and procedures for the upcoming 2024 presidential race.
