Ronna Romney McDaniel has been tapped to head the Republican National Committee in 2017 and she has some major support – President-elect Trump.
In preparation for his upcoming presidency, Trump announced Wednesday that McDaniel will serve as RNC deputy chairwoman and Trump for President Ohio State Director Bob Paduchik will be RNC deputy co-chairman.
Trump, who selected McDaniel for the position, said in a statement, “I’m excited to have a highly effective leader in Ronna McDaniel as RNC Deputy Chair and I look forward to her serving as the Party’s Chairman in 2017. Ronna has been extremely loyal to our movement and her efforts were critical to our tremendous victory in Michigan, and I know she will bring the same passion to the Republican National Committee.”
McDaniel, who is the niece of Mitt Romney and an early Trump supporter, will have to be formally approved for the position next month, but Trump’s selection is expected to be affirmed.
A high-ranking RNC staffer told Fox News that “Ronna and Bob are a done deal.”
The official said, “The positions are so they can get started before the official vote a month from now. Done deal. They are it.”
