RNC race between Ronna McDaniel and Harmeet Dhillon could be swung by eleventh-hour surge: Report

Harmeet Dalton is working overtime to defeat Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to become the new chief of the Republican National Committee.

On Friday, the RNC will hold its leadership elections. This election will determine the next chair of the committee for the 2024 elections. McDaniel is a favourite in the race and boasts the support of over 100 RNC members as well as several other prominent endorsements.

Dhillon, a lawyer, and RNC committeewoman has not stopped trying to remove McDaniel. Dhillon and her staff have been trying to convince members to vote for Dhillon since they arrived in Dana Point earlier this week to attend the RNC Winter Meeting. Some are reportedly willing to do so.

Dhillon received a significant boost on Thursday, after Gov. Ron DeSantis (R.FL) supported her candidacy and called for a “change in leadership” within the RNC. Although it is not certain how likely DeSantis will influence members to vote differently, Dhillon suggests that her last-minute efforts might be enough to get her to the finish line.

For their plan to work, the cops must go

This week is National Police Week. And I can’t think of a better way to show support for our Law Enforcement than to ensure pro-cop, pro-law and order candidates like myself win this November. I’m Ronda Kennedy. Take a stand for law and order and against the Left’s Defund agenda!

“I heard that some people who support Ronna are now kinda worried about it. Dhillon said that he would leave it at that.” Dhillon spoke to Politico. “I don’t want to jinx it, but we had an excellent night and a great day.

McDaniel’s campaign team is confident in her chances of winning reelection, but Dhillon has been a formidable opponent in recent weeks. Dhillon has the support of many top party donors and the backing of Republican parties in states like Nebraska and Washington.

McDaniel spokespersons remain confident that McDaniel will be reelected. They point to the letter distributed by 100 RNC members in November, which indicated they would support her run. To be elected to the RNC’s top leadership post, a candidate must receive 85 votes.

Dhillon claims that she has the endorsements at least 21 RNC members on her campaign site, and she has suggested that McDaniel’s soft votes could be flipped by her before the election.

The committee is split as McDaniel, Dhillon and the ex-president’s allies have both successfully courted the RNC’s antiTrump members.

McDaniel’s closeness to former President Donald Trump has been criticized by some members, particularly as some Republicans seek to distance themselves from Trump’s influence in the 2024 elections cycle. McDaniel’s staff has stated that she will remain neutral during the nomination process.

The GOP’s leadership elections are crucial as it must recover from a disappointing midterm cycle and prepare for the 2024 election. McDaniel claims she is in the best place to do so, however, several party leaders called for new leadership.
