During an appearance on Fox News, McDaniel said "With the RNC's record this cycle of turning out 4 million more Republicans, of winning state-wide in almost every battleground state proved that the turnout worked. From an RNC standpoint, we flipped the House and our ground game worked."
Ingraham Angle host Laura Ingraham criticized McDaniel's comments during a segment on Wednesday, saying, "As we said last night, I said at the top of the show, the Angle likes Ronna McDaniel a lot. She's a wonderful person, but the results do speak for themselves. She's right about the House flipping, but it's time for change at the RNC.
"Her tenure needs to come to an end. Every incumbent in the Senate running for Senate, stayed in the Senate. There were no Republican flips of any of the seats held by incumbent Democrats. What is that all about? What about early voting?
"Now, earlier today, congressman Lee Zeldin said he would not be running, noting that McDaniel's reelection, was pre-baked by design, but he also said that this doesn't mean he should be running again," said Ingraham,
GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin, who ran for governor of New York during this year's midterms, called for Ronna McDaniel to "step aside" as Chair of the Republican National Committee yesterday, adding that the party did not capitalize on what should have been a "red wave" in 2022.
"Now is not the time to say we should just continue with more of the same," Zeldin said. "There's a lot we need to do better from messaging to fundraising and expenditures, to how we do election tactics and electioneering. There is a lot of feedback from across the country with a desire for fresh blood and new leadership."
"Our party needs to look to the future... and be better and stronger," Zeldin said. "With all due respect, I've gotten along with her just fine, it is not about personalities, I just believe our party is ready to retool with new leadership."
"Our party has the opportunity to earn back support from ticket splitters," Zeldin said.
Ingraham continued: "If the RNC wants to completely ignore the grassroots of the party, well they can forge ahead with the status quo. But I think they're going to be really unhappy when they send out all those fundraising letters and they get a big nothing in return. It's time to look for new leadership that will revitalize the RNC and helps the party move to victory after victory in 2024. And that would mean supporting our next guest," she said, Harmeet Dhillon.
