( – Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) has announced that she will be formally stepping down from her current position after the Super Tuesday primaries on March 5. This announcement came a week after former President Donald Trump called for her resignation and proposed potential replacements to take her position. 

Trump suggested that North Carolina Republican chair Michael Whatley should be selected as the RNC’s next chairman and that other leadership positions in the party’s committee should go to Lara Trump, his daughter-in-law, and campaign senior adviser Chris LaCivita. 

In her statement McDaniel noted that it had been an “honor and privilege” to serve for seven years in the RNC and that she had stepped down at the party’s Spring Training in order to give the party the option to choose the Chair they wanted moving forward. She proceeded to point out that historically changes to the RNC have always been to go through changes after the selection of a nominee and that she had always intended to honor this tradition. 

She then stated that she continued to be committed to winning back the White House and helping Republicans win across state elections in November 2024. She also thanked the RNC family and her family for their support. 

Trump had called for McDaniel’s resignation a few weeks earlier as he is moving toward becoming the next GOP presidential nominee. Trump has also increased his calls for a change in leadership at the Republican national party committee. He has previously referred to McDaniel as a “friend” but that the RNC needed change.
