RNC Wants To Audit Dreadful GOP Results
(RightWing.org) – The Republican National Committee (RNC) wants a full review of the party’s disappointing midterm election results. As pressure grows for the group’s chair Ronna McDaniel to step down, senior Republicans want to make sure the GOP machine does better in 2024.
A decade after its last election autopsy, the RNC is moving forward with a post-election audit to examine the GOP's underwhelming performance in the recent midterms and the party's broader struggles in the years since former Pes. Trump took power.https://t.co/YpQftMD3Xq

On November 29, the RNC announced it was forming a Republican Party Advisory Committee (RPAC) to analyze why GOP gains in the midterms fell so far short of expectations. While the party has regained control of the House, the Senate could remain balanced 50/50, with Vice President Harris holding the tie-breaking vote. The widely expected “Red Wave” didn’t materialize, and now the party wants to know why.
The RPAC will produce a report, probably in the first half of next year, and aims to find out what the GOP is doing well and what it’s doing badly. A key point is the party’s failure to win enough of the critical, independent voters to swing races in its favor.
RPAC’s members will be:
- Henry Barbour – Mississippi RNC
- Haley Barbour – Former RNC chair
- Harmeet Dhillon, California RNC
- Senator-elect Katie Britt (R-AL)
- Representative-elect Monica De La Cruz (R-TX)
- Representative-elect John James (R-MI)
- Blake Masters – Former Arizona Senate candidate
- Kellyanne Conway – Former White House adviser
- Tony Perkins – President of the Family Research Council
Masters, who came close to beating Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) in the midterms, said the GOP has to understand how the Democrats mobilize votes. He wants to focus on Big Tech, the media, and the Dems’ powerful election worker network. If Republicans can develop similar tools, 2024 could look a lot different.
