Conservatives Demand New Leadership At The Republican National Committee

Maybe we should have headlined this article “Conservatives demand at least a little bit of leadership at the RNC,” but however you want to title it, the conservative rebellion against

the failed chairmanship of Ronna Romney McDaniel is on, with the conservative movement lining-up behind distinguished attorney and California National Committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon.

You can read our friend Scott Pressler’s explanation of why he supports Harmeet Dhillon through this link. Scott has no official position or title with the Republican Party, but he is one of the Republican Party’s most effective grassroots operatives and through his voter registration drives, letter writing and inner-city clean-up campaigns he’s done more to grow the GOP in the last five or six years than the largely moribund RNC has in decades.

As Scott put it:

Harmeet Dhillon has demonstrated that she is the fighter that the RNC needs to lead us into victory in the upcoming 2024 presidential election cycle. Through her grassroots work at every level, battling with big tech and big government in the courtroom, and helping Republicans get elected around the country, I’ve been inspired to do everything I can to help her get elected to be our next RNC Chairwoman.

And this isn’t some inside baseball argument over who gets to dole out the millions raised by the RNC, although the relationship between RNC insiders and DC-based consultants is definitely part of the problem, it’s a grassroots demand that the institutional Republican Party respond to the base’s expectation that RNC leaders will be focused on winning elections – which is what a political party is supposed to be all about.

Virginia’s National Committeeman Morton Blackwell, the longest serving member of the Republican National Committee and founder of the Leadership Institute, laid out the argument for Harmeet Dhillon in a tweet thread.

You can read the entire thread through this link, but here are two key points:


We agree with our old friend Morton Blackwell, and who wouldn’t when you look at Ronna Romney McDaniel’s record of failure. As one of our friends summarized it for us:

Here’s Ronna Romney McDaniel’s record as chair:

2018. GOP loses the House

2020. GOP loses Pres and Senate

2022. Woefully disappointing. You know the numbers.

GOP even got wiped out in Michigan in 2022. Her HOME state. Lost the legislature. Lost all statewide offices. Passed 3 awful statewide ballot issues: a radical pro-abortion law, and an amendment to the MI constitution that will make it all but impossible for the Republican Party to carry Michigan in a presidential election.

And the RNC Student Council is going to re-elect her? This is an utter outrage. There are conservative leaders who have endorsed her. Why?

We need key Senators and House members to weigh in and to call for new leadership at the RNC. It is a corrupt and weak institution that needs wholesale change. Unless we don’t want to win again. Ever.

At a time when there are increasing calls for a new conservative political party – and judging by the comments on the CHQ website those calls represent a deep vein of sentiment on the Right – reelecting Ronna Romney McDaniel, who has proven herself to be an ineffective Republican National Committee Chairman would be an act of institutional suicide for the GOP.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to go to to sign on to the campaign and to urge your Republican National Committee representatives to vote for Harmeet Dhillon for Chairman when the RNC election is conducted on January 27, 2023.

CHQ Editor George Rasley is a veteran of over 300 Republican political campaigns and 10 Republican National Conventions. He served as a Republican Precinct Committeeman in Indiana and Florida. His family has been involved in Republican politics for over 160 years, attending the first organizing convention of the Republican Party, serving as Secretary of the Convention that nominated Abraham Lincoln as President and representing the GOP in elective office from City Council to Congress.
