After yet another failed election in 2023, there is a bit of an uprising in the GOP against RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel.
The writing was plain to see here, but, as usual, the people we pay to represent us did not listen and elected her for the third time.
Now the very same people that voted for her, again, and backed her, again, are calling for her head.
We Told You…
Republicans got clocked in the 2023 cycle, with maybe two or three big stories to hang their hat on.
The fact that Virginia’s legislature is now Democrat-controlled is a complete and utter disaster for the party, pretty much ending any hopes of real change with Governor Youngkin in office.
Then there is Governor Beshear defeating Trump-backed Daniel Cameron in Kentucky, another crushing defeat.
Trump takes no blame for endorsing Cameron, instead blaming his ties to Senator McConnell (R-KY) for his failings.
So, let me ask this question… why did Trump endorse him in the first place if he was a McConnell protégé?
Regardless, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel gets the brunt of the blame this cycle because she again failed to get out the right message.
If you read our reports regularly, specifically mine, you know how much I wanted her out because of the previous election failings, but she had the weight of Donald Trump behind her, and party members were weary of going against Trump.
Trump endorsed her twice before and gushed over her when she won the chair again, yet all she has ever done is lose.
We lost the House in 2018, we lost the White House and Senate in 2020, we barely gained the House in 2022 in what was supposed to be a “tsunami” and the Senate remained in the hands of Democrats.
Then came the 2023 cycle, with a huge opportunity to flip a state legislature and oust some key Democrat governors, and we failed.
The biggest wins the GOP had were a local seat in New York that got flipped and an incumbent Republican governor in Mississippi winning.
The outrage on social media was epic…
What, exactly, does Ronna McDaniel do, besides lose?
The only thing she SHOULD do is RESIGN.

Since Ronna Romney McDaniel took over the GOP in 2017, Republicans have lost-
-8 Governors races
-3 Senate seats
-19 House seats
-1 Presidential race
And yesterday we suffered humiliating losses in deep red states Ohio and Kentucky.
Republicans are sick of Ronna McDaniel…

After the 2020 cycle, I was pushing for McCarthy, McConnell, and McDaniel to all be replaced. Our elected officials did not listen.
Now, the conservative movement is paying the price.
