The members of the ‘Big Club’ have spoken.  Mrs. Ronna McDaniel wins reelection as Republican National Commitee Chairwoman for the fourth time.

Ronna McDaniel received 111 votes, Harmeet Dhillon received 51 votes, Mike Lindell received 4 votes and Lee Zeldin received one vote.

Florida Governor Ron “Top Gov” DeSantis expended some political capital with a failed endorsement for Harmeet Dhillon.  President Trump stayed neutral in the race, preferring to let the RNC make their own decisions.

CALIFORNIA – Ronna McDaniel won a fourth term to head the Republican National Committee (RNC) during a secret ballot vote by members on Friday, capping off a contentious election spurred by calls within the party for new leadership.

McDaniel fended off two challengers — California attorney Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a staunch denier of the 2020 presidential election results.

She received 111 votes, while Dhillon received 51 and Lindell received four. Former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who did not ultimately make a run for RNC chair, also received one vote.

The last three elections have proven disappointing for Republicans: The party lost the House in 2018, lost the Senate and presidency in 2020 and only gained a thin majority in the House in 2022. Many in the party cited last November’s midterms as a reason to elect fresh blood, as McDaniel oversaw the RNC through the last three elections.

McDaniel, in brief remarks, told RNC committee members that she heard the concerns from those who voiced criticism in the wake of the November elections while also projecting unity within the party.

“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,” she said to applause in the room. (read more)

The RNC wants money, the DNC wants power.  The RNC uses power to get money, the DNC uses money to get power.  The ideology of the DNC drives their donor contributions, whereas the donor contributions to the RNC drives their ideology.  This outlook explains the subtle difference between the two wings of the UniParty and also explains why Republicans have no ideological goals.
