Trump's MAGA forces threaten to upend vote for RNC chair

NEW YORK  — The Republican National Committee is set to resolve a bitter leadership feud that is exposing dangerous divisions within a party that has struggled to move past a disappointing midterm ahead of a critical race for the White House. The race for RNC chair will be decided Friday by Republican officials from all 50 states.

Current RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel is fighting for reelection. One of former President Donald Trump’s attorneys, Harmeet Dhillon, has led a fierce campaign against McDaniel, harnessing the energy of Trump's MAGA movement.

Friday’s vote serves as the latest high-profile leadership test for a deeply divided Republican Party grappling with questions about its future and Trump’s influence.
