MCDANIEL 2023 CHALLENGE
Republican National Committee Chair and Northville resident Ronna (don’t call me Romney) McDaniel could be challenged for her post if she decides to seek another run at the top of the national party when voting takes place at the start of 2023. Vanity Fair magazine in early February suggested that long-time Donald Trump supporter and twice-around campaign aide David Bossie is running a stealth campaign to build support for him taking over the national party, although the Maryland RNC committee member denied he is seeking the post. Bossie and McDaniel worked together on the resolution to censure Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ind.) for their work as members of the committee investigating the January 6 siege of the Capitol. The censure was approved at the recent RNC meeting in Salt Lake City, but die-hard Trump supporters say that McDaniel, chosen as chair by Trump after his 2016 victory, has not been vocal enough in promoting the Big Lie and has too often attempted to moderate intra-party criticism of party members who don’t tow the line.
