(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), dismissed the comments made by Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy against the party, arguing that he was only polling at 4 percent and that he was just attempting to get headlines to cover him to make up for his low performance in the polls.
In an interview with Stuart Varney, a Fox Business anchor, McDaniel argued that Ramaswamy was only at four percent and that he needed a headline. Ramaswamy was one of the candidates who had taken part in the third GOP primary debate on Wednesday. While on stage he had claimed that the Republicans were a “party of losers” and claimed that ever since McDaniel became the party’s chair in 2017 the GOP has had disappointing election results.
He proceeded to argue that during Tuesday’s off-year-elections the GOP had been “trounced” as they had lost the gubernatorial race in Kentucky which is a red state, lost control of Virginia’s General Assembly, and had not managed to defeat a constitutional change that would grant certain protections to abortion access. Ramaswamy argued that if McDaniel had wanted to, she should have come on the stage during the Republican debate and should have announced to the people that she would be resigning.
On Thursday, McDaniel spoke up about the success of the party and made another jab about Ramaswamy. As she pointed out the RNC was not involved in state races as they were a federal committee. She argued that Ramaswamy was relatively new to the party so perhaps he did not know the.
