BREAKING: Former GOP Representative Lee Zeldin Decides Not to Run for RNC Chair FOR NOW – Says Ronna Romney McDaniel Should Not Be Elected Chair

Lee Zeldin from New York, the former GOP US Representative and GOP candidate from New York announced moments ago that he is not running for the GOP Chair position right now. 

Lee Zeldin, the former US Representative who almost won the recent election for governor in New York, has decided not to run for RNC Chair.

Zeldin shared the news in a tweet moments ago.

Zeldin is right. Ronna Romney McDaniel is not for the people of America or the people supporting the GOP. She sides with the GOP elite and her uncle Mitt Romney in working against President Trump.

FOX News reports:

GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin, who came very close to upsetting Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul last month in the predominantly blue state of New York, announced on Wednesday that he’s holding off – for now – on running for Republican National Committee chair, in a direct challenge to current RNC chair Ronna McDaniel.

Zeldin, who’s been mulling an RNC chair bid for nearly a month, made his announcement on Twitter.

“RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel should not run for a 4th term. I won’t be running for RNC Chair at this time with McDaniel’s reelection pre-baked by design, but that doesn’t mean she should even be running again. It’s time the GOP elects new leadership! It’s time for fresh blood!” Zeldin wrote.

Zeldin’s decision comes as Republicans continue to lick their wounds from a disappointing showing in the midterm elections, having failed to win control of the Senate, securing only a razor-thin majority in the House of Representatives, and losing key governors races and control of a handful of state legislative chambers, in what was supposed to be a “Red Wave” election.

Too bad for the US.  Zeldin would be a great candidate for the base of the party.  He also had big backers in New York and across the country.

Ronna Romney McDaniel is a disaster having lost two of the biggest landslides in US history.
