Zeldin RNC Bid Gains Momentum As Party Leaders Line Up Behind Him

JTN: New York Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin’s prospective bid for Republican National Committee leadership is resonating with party big-wigs, even though he has yet to formally announce plans to seek the post.

Calls to replace current RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel have arisen follow the GOP’s unexpectedly poor showing in the 2022 midterm elections. The much anticipated “red wave” failed to materialize and the Republicans managed to secure the House of Representatives by a handful of seats.

“We underperformed nationally. There were strategic missteps,” said Republican Party of Texas Chairman Matt Rinaldi to the New York Post on Thursday. Rinaldi, in turn, pointed to GOP success in New York races as the deciding factor that carried the lower chamber for the party. Zeldin himself lost his gubernatorial contest against incumbent Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul, but his strong showing in deep-blue New York has been credited with boosting Republicans down-ballot.

“[I]n New York, Lee Zeldin went into communities that Republicans don’t traditionally go into and talked about crime and inflation,” he continued. “He overperformed in blue areas. He exceeded expectations. Lee Zeldin won us the House majority and he wasn’t even the RNC chair.”

“Imagine what he can do if he is the RNC chair,” he continued. MORE HERE

  1. Certainly not that ultra-annoying Mike Lindell. When Fox News cuts to commercials, I have to grab the remote to mute or flip channels

  2. When the GOP leadership consists of McCarthy, McCONnell and Ronna McDaniel (Romney) it is the ship of failed leadership, flying the colors of continued appeasement of the RINO party.
    Principled Republicans are McScrewed again.

    Refuse to contribute to the RNC, Congressional, Senate Campaign committees or any of the traitors who vote to keep them in a leadership positions.

  3. “Imagine what he can do if he is the RNC chair,”
