(AmericanProsperity.com) – Republicans are looking for new leaders after their dismal performance in the midterms. Rumors circulated that Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who ran an impressive gubernatorial campaign in New York, would join the likes of longtime California GOP official Harmeet Dhillon and My Pillow founder Mike Lindell to challenge Ronna McDaniel for the RNC chair. Zeldin decided to stay mum on his decision until the completion of the Senate runoff election in Georgia. With the results in his rearview mirror, the Republican lawmaker announced his decision not to pursue the RNC chair on December 7.

Prior to Republican candidate Herschel Walker’s loss in the Georgia runoff, Zeldin had mentioned he was “seriously considering” making a bid for the RNC chair. However, he explained he decided not to, claiming McDaniel’s reelection was predetermined, “pre-baked by design.”
Zeldin wrote that McDaniel, who has held the position since 2017, needed to step aside and allow a fresh face to lead the party. The New York Republican declared that while he’s not running for the RNC chair, he remains committed to doing everything he can to help save America.
The congressman also urged fellow Republicans to prioritize its fundraising efforts, increase its efficiency with spending, and create smarter messaging, particularly when it came to distinguishing their policies from those embraced by President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats.
Zeldin concluded his advice, noting that Republicans can’t just run off what Democrats are doing wrong. He added they need to do a better job of communicating their own agenda goals if they win elections.
