Over the last few days, there have been numerous stories on the web stating that Ronna Romney McDaniel is being pushed out of the leadership of the Republican National Committee; and that Trump is advocating for North Carolina GOP Chair Michael Whatley to replace her. I don’t know whether those stories are true; and now McDaniel is apparently denying the stories of her exit.
In any case, I knew that the Daily Haymaker would have some comments about Whatley because he has reported about him extensively in the past. Sure enough, last night he posted on this matter.
In a nutshell, Whatley is an establishment Republican whose record in North Carolina is not nearly as good as Trump seems to believe it is. However, Whatley has somehow convinced him otherwise. Trump has a history of unfortunately making many bad personnel choices in politics and government.
I don’t know that this is the cure for what ails the national GOP. But yes, McDaniel needs to go.
