Attorney Harmeet Dhillon announced yesterday she will run for the coveted RNC chair — a position RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has held since 2017.
“After three successive terms of underwhelming results at the polls for the GOP, all the while with leaders congratulating ourselves for outstanding performance, 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,” Dhillon told Fox News Digital.
Dhillon, who is a frequent guest on Fox News, hinted at her run in a Tweet, announcing an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” this Monday.
“Are you concerned about the leadership of the Republican Party? If so watch @TuckerCarlson tonight where I will discuss!” Dhillon tweeted.

Dhillon is not the only contender for the coveted position. Rumors have been swirling for some time as to who will run for the RNC chair nomination. For instance, many have speculated New York Gubernatorial Candidate Lee Zeldin (R-NY) will run for the position. In fact, earlier this week, he alleged several Republicans were duped into signing a letter supporting McDaniel.
As the New York Post reports:
“Zeldin said he was not intimidated, telling The Post a number of people who signed the letter called him afterward and said they were not committed to McDaniel — and were even misled into signing it. ‘They don’t feel obligated to her,’ Zeldin told The Post. He also said a few of the signatories will be replaced as state GOP chairs and will not be able to vote for McDaniel. ‘The letter did not have a deterrent effect on me,’ Zeldin said.”
All in all, the Republican Party has major contenders heading into 2024 — and we the people need and deserve competent and trustworthy party leadership. If we learn from our mistakes and recenter our attention on the fundamentals of campaigning and electioneering, the sky is truly the limit for the Party of Lincoln and the Party of Donald J. Trump.
