RNC chair: GOP is ‘in the best place we’ve ever been’

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel says the GOP is "in the best place" it's ever been.

During a visit to Denver, McDaniel said the party’s high fundraising shows a strong base, the Denver Post reported.

“The RNC has had, actually, record fundraising in a post-presidential year,” Romney McDaniel said. “That shows that our base is rallying around what our president put forward in terms of his agenda. … I think we’re in the best place we’ve ever been as a party.”

McDaniel’s comments come on the heels of several ongoing feuds between President Trump and GOP members of Congress, as well as with members of his own Cabinet.


“There’s always going to be differences of opinion within your own party,” she said. “We have that in our own families — that happens — it makes us stronger when we have a dialogue and a discussion.”

Recent polls have shown the GOP’s popularity plummeting after the party failed to repeal and replace ObamaCare and that Democrats lead Republicans by 14 points in a generic 2018 House ballot.
