On Wednesday, American Principles Project (APP) announced its support for Ronna McDaniel’s reelection as chairwoman of the Republican National Committee. The RNC will vote on its leadership next month, with McDaniel standing for another two-year term as chair.
APP President Terry Schilling released the following statement backing McDaniel:
“Following this month’s disappointing midterm elections, the Republican Party is badly in need of leadership who are willing to buck the conventional wisdom and instead reorient the GOP behind a clear, conservative vision which prioritizes rebuilding the family and fighting the woke left. Based on her record, we believe Ronna McDaniel can be a key leader in this effort.
“Over the last few years, McDaniel has been instrumental in pushing the party in a conservative direction. We appreciated her aggressive defense of Florida’s parental rights bill, which came at a time when the media was engaging in a smear campaign and others in party leadership remained silent. Her courage helped to demonstrate not only the legislation’s policy merits but also its political benefits. McDaniel has also consistently emphasized important cultural issues, such as protecting women’s sports, and argued for them to be included at the top of the Republican Party’s agenda.
“We believe McDaniel is better positioned than anyone to continue to effectively lead the RNC, and we look forward to working with her as we prepare for the immensely critical 2024 election.”
