There is far more on the line in 2024 than control of Congress and the White House. 

The future of the Republican Party is also up for grabs. 

And Vivek Ramaswamy just took his feud with Ronna McDaniel to new heights with this aggressive announcement. 

Vivek Ramaswamy vs. Ronna McDaniel

As Chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Ronna McDaniel is responsible for shaping the direction and brand of the Party, selecting and preparing candidates, and fundraising for elections. 

McDaniel has been running the RNC since then-President Donald Trump helped her gain the position in 2017. 

Coming off the heels of the Republican Party’s historic 2016 victories, McDaniel has done nothing but lose since taking a leadership position in the Party. 

The GOP has come out on the losing end in 2018, 2020, 2022, and this November had its worst showing nation-wide in recent memory. 

White House hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy is tired of all the losing and has called out McDaniel’s failures on the national debate stage.  

The tech and financial entrepreneur even challenged McDaniel to resign from her position. 

She refused and even lied about Ramaswamy in the process by claiming he voted for Barack Obama. 

But now Ramaswamy is upping the ante. 

Ramaswamy doubles down, but McDaniel passes the buck

It’s not often that a feud breaks out between a top Presidential candidate and the leader of the national Party. 

But to win the war for the GOP’s future, Ramaswamy is now circulating a petition to force McDaniel’s hand. 

Ramaswamy launched the website 

“I am sick and tired of this Republican establishment that has made us a party of losers,” Ramaswamy wrote. “Where is the accountability for years of losing: 2018, 2020, 2022 and now 2023. On the debate stage, I called on Ronna Romney McDaniel to resign. Now, I’m asking grassroots conservatives across the nation to join me so she can feel the power of the people. It’s time to stop the culture of surrender and losing. Resign, Ronna!”

Instead of putting the Party first or defending the job she’s done, McDaniel once again responded with childish shots at Ramaswamy. 

“He’s at 4% – he needs a headline,” McDaniel told Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney. “The RNC doesn’t do state races, we’re a federal Committee. So, we weren’t involved in those races on Tuesday.”

Not only did McDaniel cherry pick Ramaswamy’s worst polling, but she also completely deflected the blame and passed the buck. 

The RNC may not be physically involved in individual state races, but it sets the stage for the overall Party strength and should also turn out voters in state elections. 

She also completely ignored all of the federal losses and disappointments in the other three election cycles that Ramaswamy cited.  

But this is the kind of leadership Republicans can expect in 2024 if Ronna McDaniel remains in her position as the Chair of the Republican National Committee.
