Conservative pundits have spent the last few weeks finding reasons for the lackluster results of the 2022 Midterms. Republicans took back the House and won critical races at the state level. But they failed to produce the “red wave” everyone was expecting, especially considering Biden’s massive failures.
Some have blamed Trump. Others point to Republicans’ failure to capitalize on election strategies used by Democrats nationwide. Still, others believe that RNC leadership needs a big change. And fresh off his loss in New York, Lee Zeldin is making waves.
From Daily Wire:
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said Thursday he would “very seriously consider” running for Republican National Committee chair, challenging Ronna McDaniel in her bid for reelection.
“It is time for our party to retool, transform, win back the presidency in 2024, expand our number of Republican held seats in Congress, and elect the maximum number of down ballot races across the country,” Zeldin said. “The Republican Party needs to be all in to do everything in its power to save America.”
Despite losing his bid for New York governor, Lee Zeldin appears to have had a role in gaining ground in the blue state. Republicans flipped four congressional seats in New York, the most in the country.
Nearly every county in New York State moved closer to the right in this election, something leftist AOC panicked over. Zeldin is vying to take over the Republican National Committee, ousting Ronna McDaniel–who has held it for years.
Although young and aspiring, McDaniel has faced criticism in the aftermath of the election. Numerous voices blame the RNC for not taking advantage of ballot harvesting, early voting, mail-in ballots, and ballot curing–in states that allow it.
Democrats have exploited these strategies to secure victories, even after failing tremendously over the last two years. They have proved that results don’t matter if you take advantage of these tactics. Republicans have adapted to these strategies in California, New York, and other places, making gains in blue states.
Zeldin has championed these strategies, calling Republicans to adapt and get more aggressive–or lose. His approach could be the key to securing a massive 2024 victory for the GOP.
- Lee Zeldin is challenging Ronna McDaniel for Republican National Committee chair.
- McDaniel is being blamed, in part, for the lackluster 2022 Midterm results.
- Zeldin is calling for fresh leadership and new tactics to win 2024.
