n a conversation with the Washington Examiner, the RNC chairwoman touted the written support of two-thirds of states — more than enough to win the 51% of votes she will need to win the election at the party’s winter meeting in California at the end of the month.
“The members of the RNC who are grassroots volunteers and are elected and really understand what the RNC does, I have the vast majority of support,” McDaniel said in a phone call Wednesday. “I have two-thirds of their support with their names in writing on a letter.”
Several states have announced they’ve lost confidence in McDaniel primarily over the results of the previous three elections, including the one last year in which Republicans failed to win a Senate majority and only won the House by a small margin. Alabama became the latest defector on Monday, joining other states, including Arizona and Texas.
McDaniel maintained that the RNC was not to blame for shortcomings in congressional elections last November.
