Ronna McDaniel, nee Romney, chair of the Republican National Party, was re-elected for a second term, for 2019-2020, an unprecedented feat for a woman in that post. McDaniel, who lives in Northville, and was the chair of the Michigan Republican Party in 2016, helping to deliver Michigan for Trump, who insisted she dump the Romney moniker. Trump asked McDaniel to continue leading the GOP through the 2020 election, as she helped to raise “record funds, made its largest-ever ground game investment, and defied history by gaining seats in the Senate during the 2018 election cycle,” according to Trump (insert eye roll here). McDaniel, niece of Republican Utah Senator-elect Mitt Romney, chastised her uncle when he wrote an editorial in The Washington Post stating that any president should "demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect," which he said Trump had failed to do. The bad blood between Trump and Romney traces back to 2016to the day before the Michigan primary, when Romney urged voters to reject Trump as a “phony, a fraud.” Might not want to invite everyone to dinner.
