Ronna McDaniel tries to level Charlie Kirk, only to be felled herself
McDaniel’s poorly picked battle began when she appeared on Fox with Brian Kilmeade. Kilmeade asked how she felt about Dhillon’s campaign, which is predicated on the claim that it’s time for new leadership at the RNC. McDaniel returned with the obvious “dis”: “Yeah, you know she is a good attorney, but she’s never run a state party. She’s never run a campaign.”
That was an interesting response from someone whose greatest skill seems to be spending money. It got worse when Kilmeade pointed out that, while the big-money backers (who clearly don’t mind the waste) support McDaniel, a straw poll at a Turning Point event showed young people going for Dhillon.
McDaniel led with a strongish argument: Dhillon was a speaker at the event, and Turning Point had endorsed her. In other words, it was a biased poll. But then McDaniel decided not just to go after Dhillon or a biased poll, she attacked Turning Point itself:
And I just I’m going to say something about Turning Point. You know they do great conferences. How many young voters did they register? How many youth voters turned out this cycle? How about the college kids in Arizona where they’re headquartered?
You know if you’re going to hold the RNC accountable, start looking at these outside organizations that don’t disclose their finances and ask them what they did.
And this is a group that’s taken over the youth vote, they’ve taken over college campuses and they need to be held accountable, but this is Turning Point and Harmeet trying to take over the RNC.
