People Are Now Calling For Lee Zeldin To Run As New Chair Of The Republican National Committee

Republican Lee Zeldin may not have won the governor race in New York but people were very impressed with him as a candidate.

In fact, people are now calling on him to run as the new chair of the RNC.

This makes sense for two reasons.

First, Zeldin may not have won but he did help several other Republicans to win in New York.

Second, after a midterm like this it is clear that Republicans need some new leadership.

Rep. Zeldin taking supporters’ calls about running for RNC chair, longtime adviser says

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., who lost a surprisingly close race for governor last week, has spoken with GOP elected officials and party activists who want him to run for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee, his media consultant said.

“He has received calls from around the country,” John Brabender said Sunday. “It’s likely that he will at least explore it. … He’s fielding calls, talking to people, listening to them, but it has not gone beyond that.”

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel has not said whether she will seek re-election at the party’s winter meeting in January, nor has Tommy Hicks, the co-chair. Under the party’s rules, the top two posts must be held by one man and one woman…

Zeldin, a four-term House member from Long Island, lost to Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul by 53% to 47% — in a state where Trump lost by 22 percentage points in 2020. Many Republicans have pointed to Zeldin’s overperformance at the top of the ticket as a force in helping Republicans flip four House seats in the state, most notably that of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney.

Lots of people like the idea.

Zeldin would be great in this role.
