RNC to Launch ‘Review’ of Party Strategies After Poor Midterm Performance

The Republican National Committee is starting a “review” of the party’s strategies in response to the party’s underwhelming showing in the midterm elections in November. According to Politico, the committee will release its findings in the first half of 2023. 

Mississippi RNC committeeman Henry Barbour and California RNC committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon will lead the investigation, which is scheduled to start after the Georgia senate runoff on December 6th. A separate “Republican Party Advisory Council” will also reportedly be established to bring fresh perspectives into the party and enhance its appeal to suburban women and minorities.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel stated, “As we assess the midterms and plan for 2024, we are gathering a diverse range of respected leaders in our movement to join together and help chart a winning course in the years to come. I am thrilled that this talented group of Republicans will be shoulder to shoulder with us as we work to grow our party, hold Democrats accountable, and elect Republicans.”

The news comes as McDaniel might be in for a leadership challenge from Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York, who gained notoriety for mounting a more competitive than anticipated gubernatorial race in his home state. She could also face a leadership challenge from MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. However, 100 committee members endorsed McDaniel, surpassing the required majority to gain reelection. The election will be held at the committee’s winter meeting in early 2023.
