(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Sunday, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel stressed that all the GOP presidential candidates would need to support the party’s 2024 nomination. As she told CNN’s “State of the Union”, since the primary winner is chosen by the Republican voters, everyone who enters the debate stage and who is choosing to run for the White House should be saying that they are going to support whoever becomes the nominee.

McDaniel, who just won a fourth term as RNC chair, has also said that GOP candidates would be asked to sign a pledge disclosing their support for the 2024 presidential nominee if they want to be allowed on the debate stage. She further argued that she believed that they would all sign it, as voters will not be interested in viewing a debate stage filled with candidates who are claiming they will not support the nominee. Instead, what all candidates need to say is that they will work to ensure that the GOP beats Joe Biden, and the only way of doing that is by supporting the Republican Party nominee.

CNN’s Dana Bash pointed out however that former President Trump, who’s running in the 2024 presidential election, had previously said during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns that his endorsement would depend on who managed to win the GOP primary.

McDaniel however countered that by stating that Trump would want to be on the debate stage.
