BREAKING: RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Announces Resignation

On Monday, Republican National Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced that she would resign from her position on March 8, just after Super Tuesday on March 5. McDaniel began her position at the top of the RNC in 2017. 

She said she would vacate her role at the RNC meeting in Houston, Texas. "It has been the honor and privilege of my life to serve the Republican National Committee for seven years as Chairwoman to elect Republicans and grow our Party," McDaniel said. "I have decided to step aside at our Spring Training on March 8 in Houston to allow our nominee to select a Chair of their choosing," she continued. "The RNC has historically undergone change once we have a nominee and it has always been my intention to honor that tradition."

The RNC chairwoman explained that she wants presumptive nominee Donald Trump to choose her replacement. When it became clear that McDaniel was stepping down earlier this month, Trump put his backing behind North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley as McDaniel's replacement and his daughter-in-law Lara Trump as RNC co-chair. 

Trump seemingly is still on good terms with McDaniel, praising her success in flipping Michigan in 2016 via a Truth Social post the day that the two met at Mar-a-Lago earlier this month. "In my successful run in 2016, the State of Michigan really came through - First time in Decades that it was won by a Republican, and it was headed up by my friend Ronna McDaniel," Trump wrote. "Ronna is now Head of the RNC, and I’ll be making a decision the day after the South Carolina Primary as to my recommendations for RNC Growth."

This is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.
