BREAKING: Lee Zeldin announces he’s NOT running for RNC Chair and explains why…

Lee Zeldin announced this morning that he’s not going to be running for the RNC Chair.

Zeldin says that while the GOP needs new leadership, he won’t be running because “McDaniel’s reelection pre-baked by design”:

“The issue is Chairwoman McDaniel’s reelection appears to already be pre-baked, as if the disappointing results of every election during her tenure, including yesterday in Georgia, do not and should not even matter.”

Here’s his announcement and full statement:

I was really hoping Zeldin would run because I thought he’d be able to win.

But as we suggested yesterday, with so many putting their names in writing behind McDaniel, it would have been a steep uphill climb to pull votes away from her and perhaps a wasted effort.

This is exactly why so many people are upset at the Republican Party and the RNC. They are totally fine with mediocre leadership even though they claim to want serious change, because power and position are more important to them than electing someone with fire in their belly.

Seriosly, if Lee Zeldin can’t defeat Ronna McDaniel, then what hope is there for the Republican Party?
