How I Went From a Stay-at-Home Mom to the RNC Chairwoman
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
March 5, 2018
"President Donald Trump surprised politicos and pundits alike by his choice to lead the Republican National Committee. He didn’t choose one of his influential business friends. He didn’t choose a seasoned politician. He chose a mom from Michigan – an outsider to Washington, D.C. – to become the second woman to take charge of the RNC.
"The President recognized our hard work, and I came to Washington. My story is just like those of countless other women who, while underestimated, defy expectations and deliver results.
"Since joining the RNC, we have raised record-breaking amounts of money, engaged more voters than ever before and invested millions of dollars into our data and digital operations. I’ve traveled more than 100,000 miles across the country to meet with our supporters, and I’ve seen the energy of our grassroots efforts first-hand.
"I didn’t do this alone.
"At the RNC, we’ve had more women in leadership roles this cycle than ever before. We work together every day to support President Trump’s agenda – an agenda that empowers American women everywhere. We believe that all issues are women’s issues, which is why we fight for the policies that make it easier for women to live, work and raise families…
"…Women make up more than half of our 8,600 Republican Leadership Initiative fellows — our most active volunteers who grow our party’s reach in their communities. We recently launched a video series to highlight our field team’s female staff in targeted states. These political directors, state directors and field organizers are the ones driving our party to victory.
"We women are not easily deterred. History proves that time and again, we do what it takes to get the job done. As we recognize the accomplishments of the women who came before us, let’s not forget that women everywhere, every day, are making our country better. There are millions of American women standing with them today, and we’ll be there to celebrate each other’s success tomorrow."
