The Republican National Committee on Thursday officially selected Ronna Romney McDaniel to replace outgoing chairman Reince Priebus to lead the party as President-elect Donald Trump takes over the White House. McDaniel was the state chairman for the Michigan Republican Party, a delegate for the state at the 2016 Republican National Convention, and reportedly played a role in helping Trump win the typically blue midwestern state during the general election. McDaniel is also the niece of 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who famously opposed Trump’s candidacy throughout both the GOP primary and the general election. McDaniel’s predecessor Priebus is moving on to become Trump’s first White House chief of staff.
