Trump picks Ronna Romney McDaniel, niece of Mitt Romney, as RNC chairwoman

Another interesting pick by Trump
Part of his war on women strategy

I thought the RNC chair was an elected party position. I seem to remember there being multiple rounds of voting before Michael Steel was elected circa 2009. Is this only when the president is not a Republican?

Wow! Does anyone else feel like he has just watched a pea-and-shell game?

The chairman is elected by the entire national committee, but they normally go along with the President’s choice when there is a President of that party.

As in, Four Card Monty? (or Mitty?)

Sorry, but could you explain Ridge runner? As in “which shell is the pea under?”


Trump’s strategy to pacify the Mormon contingent, who put significant weight behind Evan McMullin :slight_smile:
