Harmeet Dhillon Wins Key Endorsement, Texas and Arizona GOP Drop Ronna McDaniel, as RNC Chair Race Heats Up

by Madeleine Hubbard


Trump attorney Harmeet Dhillon is getting some support from within the Republican National Committee in her bid to unseat Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

Over the weekend, Dhillon got the backing of longtime RNC member Morton Blackwell, founder of the conservative training group The Leadership Institute.

“She has a long and successful record as a leader for conservative principles at the state and national levels,” tweeted Blackwell, a committee member from Virginia.

Most committee members have already pledged their support for a fourth term for McDaniel. But Republicans have underperformed in the past three election cycles, after McDaniel become the RNC leader in 2017, which is raising concerns about reelecting her.

New Jersey RNC Committeeman Bill Palatucci told The Washington Times on Sunday that he takes support pledges “with a grain of salt.”

Several state RNC groups have expressed frustration with the RNC under McDaniel, who was President Trump’s pick after getting elected in 2016.

The Texas Republican Party recently joined the Arizona Republican Party in expressing no confidence in McDaniel and calling for new leadership.

“Clearly, the grassroots think it’s time for a change,” the Arizona group tweeted.

Tennessee RNC Committeewoman Beth Campbell posted Saturday on Twitter that she discussed the RNC elections with  committee member Oscar Brock and found “overwhelming support for Leadership change [in] the RNC.”

Dhillon announced her candidacy for RNC head last week.

“After three successive terms of underwhelming results at the polls for the GOP,” she said,”I feel that we owe it to our voters to have a serious debate about the leadership of the party and what we must change to actually win in 2024.

  1. William Bruce

    From what I know, Harmeet would be a great choice of new leadership for the Republican Party.
    She has excellent conservative principles, and we desperately need conservatives in government now before it is too late. Also, please do not send money to the Party. I think Mitch the Turtle controls that fund. Send your money directly to the candidate of your choice.

  2. How do we know she’s not another RINO like McDaniel ? I’ve read a lot about her online and still have no clue. We absolutely do not want another anti-America First person in that position !
    On the other hand, we have Mike Lindell, well known as standing for America First, who will be focused on restoring elections to make them as fraud proof as possible and will truly represent the people. THIS is what we need !

    Harmeet Dhillon Must Prevail. To me, she is an awesome choice. Harmeet Dhillon is what the RNC and the nation desperately need.

      She’s been part of the RNC for YEARS. What did she do to prevent the current problems?

    Good. Time for a much needed change.
