Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel informed former President Donald Trump of her plans to step down from her role following the South Carolina primary on February 24th, according to two sources who spoke to the New York Times on Tuesday.
The favoured replacement is currently Michael Whatley, Chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party. Whatley is hardly popular with the MAGA faithful in the Tarheel State, with National Pulse sources suggesting he may end up worse than McDaniel. An election must be held before the leadership torch is passed.
McDaniel’s decision to step down comes after months of growing pressure from Trump and his allies to replace her. There have been increasing concerns about the RNC’s financial situation as the new election cycle kick-starts. Trump’s consideration of Mr. Whatley is largely based on the latter’s view of the 2020 election fraud.
As the general counsel for the RNC, Whatley has previously espoused arguments for developing stricter voting laws and has alleged that Republican election security measures in his home state deterred illegitimate Democratic votes.
