(TheRedWire.com) – The Alabama Republican Party has officially disclosed that they would oppose Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel’s bid to win the leadership of the organization again. This is the first time when McDaniel is facing tough opposition and her leadership is being challenged.
The state party released a statement in which they wrote that “the Alabama Republican Party’s Steering Committee cannot support or endorse Ronna McDaniel for RNC Chair” this is why they “declare our vote of no-confidence in her leadership.”
Recently McDaniel has faced a lot of criticism after the GOP had an underwhelming performance in the 2022 midterm elections. The results of the election are widely considered to be disappointing as the Republicans did not win control of the Senate and also managed to win the House of Representatives with an extremely narrow majority.
The statement from the Alabama GOP indicated that it was time for the organization to seek new leadership that can help navigate the political field and bring Republican victories.
McDaniel has been the leader of the RNC since 2017. In all her time as leader, the GOP has managed to lose the House in 2018 and the White House and Senate in 2020.
Previously the Texas GOP in a unanimous vote also endorsed the replacement of McDaniel in the leadership of the organization.
According to a December poll, most Republican voters also believe that it is time for the party to move away from McDaniel. Furthermore, about 73 percent of Republican voters said that they would like to see someone other than McDaniel elected to the position.
