Well, it’s now official – Ronna (Romney) McDaniel, Northville resident, former Michigan GOP state co-chair and graduate of the former Bloomfield Hills Lahser High School, has left her position with the Republican National Committee, replaced by North Carolina GOP Chairman Michael Whatley, who had been general counsel at the RNC, as well as an election denier, and Trump daughter-in-law Lara Trump as co-chair. The 168 member RNC membership must still formally vote to make it official, but with the former prez’s endorsement it is considered a mere formality. On her way out the door, McDaniel basically gave the proverbial finger to RNC members with a letter, obtained by Politico, about her 2024 fundraising achievements, one of a few issues that helped Trump and acolytes sour of late on her seven-year tenure in the national party’s top job. McDaniel’s letter noted that the national party had raised $22.5 million in the months of January and February, $8 million more than what was projected by the RNC. The outgoing chair also noted that the early 2024 donation haul was a record for the first two months of any year when the party was not in control of the White House. Now the question will be how much of the RNC donations will go to electing Republicans in 2024 as opposed to being siphoned off to pay legal bills of the party’s nominee.
