While it’s important to judge every individual on their own merits, there are some Trump supporters who won’t be happy about one of his possible staffing decisions.
This person won’t be working in the White House, but it’s a powerful position with a lot of responsibility. Four years ago Mitt Romney ran a campaign that ultimately succumbed to Obama’s second term.
Trump seems to be giving the Romney clan a second chance—but no one thought it would happen this way.
Michelle Moons reports at Breitbart:
Just four years after entering politics working on her uncle Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, Ronna Romney McDaniel is expected to become President-elect Donald Trump’s choice for next chairman of the RNC. (…)
McDaniel entered the political realm in 2012 working on Mitt Romney’s failed presidential campaign, according to the Detroit Free Press. Quickly thereafter she was chosen as just one two people that represent Michigan on the RNC in 2014. By 2015 she was made chairman of the Michigan Republican Party.
At Donald Trump’s Friday night Thank You Tour stop in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he lauded McDaniel for helping him flip the blue wall state for a Trump win, according to the Free Press. Trump won the state with just over 10,000 votes.
For those who viewed Trump’s victory as a crushing blow to the establishment GOP, the appointment of someone related to Mitt Romney will be viewed as a step backward.
However, there is another contender for the job: Nick Ayers, who currently works as Vice President elect Mike Pence’s senior aide.
