RNC Pressuring Haley to Drop Out to Get Campaign Funds

With yet another subpar performance, the Republican National Committee (RNC), led by Chair Ronna McDaniel, is now pressuring Haley to drop out of the race.

The RNC wants Haley to drop out so it can start a joint fundraising effort with Trump, which would land it far more significant donations.

It needs a cash boost because of mismanagement of funds by McDaniel, now only reportedly holding about $8 million cash on hand.

We Need Money

McDaniel was endorsed by Trump for the Chair of the RNC after he won the presidential election in 2016.

She took over in 2017, and it has been a disaster ever since.

The RNC funds were pillaged after Trump took office because McDaniel took on all of Trump’s legal bills from the Russian collusion investigation.

With a lack of funds, the GOP lost the House in 2018, then lost the Senate and White House in 2020, but still Trump backed McDaniel.

She was kept in charge through a disappointing 2022 and 2023 election cycle, and now the RNC is strapped heading into this cycle, with Trump’s campaign and PACs also hurting due to paying out tens of millions in legal bills for Donald Trump.

If Haley drops out, the RNC can boost funding by promoting a joint effort, allowing the big-money donors to write checks for more than $800,000.

Currently, Haley is taking money away from the RNC in her effort to defeat Trump, but that does not mean the people donating to Haley will donate to the RNC.

McDaniel has even publicly hinted that Haley needs to drop out, even though the RNC is supposed to be neutral in primary races, stating, “I’m looking at the map and the path going forward, and I don’t see it for Nikki Haley.”

There was also a resolution being proposed to declare Trump the presumptive nominee even with Haley still in the race, but that was quashed when reports got out and there was significant pushback on the idea.

There is also the fact that MAGA considers the RNC to be establishment, so any joint effort could open up Trump to attacks, so if this does happen, I would suspect that Trump will demand the lion’s share of the money, much like he did in the 2016 cycle.

Once the joint campaign started in the last election, the split was 4:1 in favor of Trump.

Whatever happens, the RNC needs to get its act together quickly, and that would likely mean removing McDaniel from the chair due to her sheer incompetence.
