President Trump announced Thursday that he had asked Republican national committee chairman Ronna McDaniel to earn a second two-year period in the mail.
“As RNC president Ronna McDaniel watched history defy profits in the Senate and an unprecedented fundraising force,” said Trump on Twitter. “I have asked her to serve another term to choose from 2020, because there is nothing better for the job!”
“It has been a privilege to act as President of the President under President Trump, and I’m honored to have the opportunity for a second term,” McDaniel said in a statement. “Thanks to President Trump’s leadership, we have met historical milestones for gathering and voting, and I’m convinced we can do even more when we work to restore President 2020. I’m excited to continue our struggle for President America’s first agenda and for a even better future for the American people. “
McDaniel, a grandson of the 201
2 Republican President’s nominated Mitt Romney, was elected President of the RNC in January 2017 on Trump’s recommendation. The post will formally be voted by RNC members in January, but Trump’s report makes it unlikely that she will face a big challenge.
RNC has not had a questionable election as chairman since 2011 when Reince Priebus triumphed in a five-person contest that featured Commander Michael Steele.
