Current circumstances in the contest for RNC chair

Ronna McDaniel faces down her own leadership challenge. Her top challenger is Trump ally Harmeet Dhillon, with MyPillow founder Mike Lindell at least nominally running. Around a half-dozen state parties have issued votes of no confidence in McDaniel’s leadership. The state parties that rebuked McDaniel come exclusively from the Sun Belt and the South. There’s little evidence of others following his lead, even amid the backlash.

The Nebraska chairman has promised a leadership vote on Saturday after withdrawing his endorsement. Florida will also hold such a no-confidence vote on Friday.
