‘It’s Time For Fresh Blood!’: Lee Zeldin Bows Out Of RNC Chair Race
Outgoing New York Rep. Lee Zeldin announced Wednesday that he will not run for Republican National Committee chairman, despite widespread speculation that he would challenge three-term chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
Zeldin, who came within six points of knocking off Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul in November, considered running for the top spot. Despite calls from activists and state party representatives, he ultimately decided against the bid. McDaniel is currently facing challenges from RNC committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.
