Ronna McDaniel denies that the GOP's 2024 strategy of election denial is their 2024 strategy of election denial.
February 6, 2023

News broke last week of a RNC report outlining Republicans' plan for 2024 elections: strengthen and standardize their election denial on a state level. They are doing this despite acknowledging that this strategy has had negative impact for them.

When asked about it by WISN-TV reporter Matt Smith, Ronna McDaniel unsuccessfully tried to sidestep it:

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel appeared to distance herself from the recently circulated GOP document calling on Republicans at the state level to ramp up election denial efforts for 2024, according to WISN 12 political director Matt Smith.

"That's not an official report. There's other things that need to be added to that, including all the legal pursuits that we had, all the lawsuits that we had," said McDaniel. She added that, "We're going to continue to engage in election integrity, poll watchers, poll workers and litigation when it's necessary."

It doesn't sound like a denial as much as it is a confirmation and further explanation on just how the GOP is planning on trying to thwart democracy. It also sounds a lot like what they tried in 2020, which they admit didn't work out well for them at all.

What's that adage about the definition of insanity again - doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?
