Ronna McDaniel

Someone who won’t be giving Lena Epstein a run for her considerable dollars in the 2022 Republican gubernatorial primary is Northville’s Ronna (don’t call me Romney) McDaniel, who definitively ruled out a run for the seat her grandfather, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, held. McDaniel told Michael Patrick Shiels, radio personality and host of Michigan’s Big Show, on March 10, that “I just signed on to be Republican National Committee chair for another two years, so I’m not looking to run for governor of Michigan. But I will definitely be involved in that race, because I think we need a new governor.” McDaniel is credited with helping spearhead former President Donald Trump’s narrow win of Michigan in 2016, when she was Michigan GOP chair, and for her efforts has been the Republican National Committee chair since, largely working with Trump.
