( – On Friday Ronna McDaniel won in a secret election and is now going to be serving a fourth term as chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Following her victory, Trump took to his Truth Social Platform to congratulate McDaniel on her victory. He then continued to allege once again that the Democrats have been rigging elections without providing any proof. Despite his quick congratulations, the former President had not publicly endorsed any of the candidates running in the RNC election.

The election had been held at Dana Point, California, where McDaniel had to face California-based attorney Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. In the end, McDaniel won with 111 votes, while Dhillon received around half that number, 51, while Lindell only received 4 votes.

This was the most challenging election that McDaniel has had to face so far as many within the party had requested that new leadership should be elected within the party, especially following the recent midterm elections. Many have pointed out that during McDaniel’s time as chair, the GOP has performed badly in the elections. In the 2018 election, they lost the House, in 2020 they lost the Senate and the White House, and in 2022 they were unable to flip the Senate and only managed to win the House with a narrow majority.

The thin House majority also led to a challenging vote for the Speakership, with 15 votes taking place before Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) became the House Speaker.
