Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands leaders applaud President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Ronna Romney McDaniel to the Republican National Committee.
VIGOP chairman John Canegata worked with Romney McDaniel during her tenure as chairman of the Michigan Republican Party.
“As chairman and previously Michigan’s national committeewoman, Ronna Romney McDaniel was one of the most respected voices on the national committee,” Canegata said. “Michigan, being a big state with one of the most active state parties, prepared her well to lead the national party.”
National Committeeman Jevon O.A. Williams, a West Indian who immigrated to the United States as a teenager and later served tours of duty in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo, said: “Chairman-designate Ronna Romney McDaniel’s record of success in Michigan gives her the right experience to lead our party into 2018. Having risen through the ranks, she also understands that having a strong party in all 56 states and territories is critical to keeping majorities in Congress and statehouses.”
The 168-member RNC will ratify Romney McDaniel as chairman during its winter meeting from Jan. 17-21 in Washington, D.C. The VIGOP is the RNC state party for the territory of the Virgin Islands. The RNC consists of the chairman, national committeewoman and national committeeman from the 56 states and territories.
