Trump installs another ally in the RNC

 March 11, 2024

Former President Donald Trump appears to have installed yet another ally at the Republican National Convention (RNC).

Axios reports that the RNC's new leadership, which was hand-picked by Trump, has now selected Sean Carncross to play a major role at the organization.

Per the outlet:

Former President Trump's new team at the Republican National Committee has tapped former RNC executive Sean Cairncross to help run the party's operations and watch its spending in the run-up to the November election, two people familiar with the move tell Axios.

This is likely to be a major change for the committee.

The details

Ronna McDaniel was recently removed from the RNC chair, after facing significant criticism about how she was running things. Among other criticisms, McDaniel was accused of excessive spending.

There is little doubt that Cairncross is being brought in to rectify the situation. He, according to Axios, "is a lawyer with a reputation of enforcing financial discipline — someone who can 'watch the money.'"

It appears that Cairncross was selected for the position by Chris LaCivita, who is a major player for Trump.

Currently, LaCivita is the co-campaign manager for Trump's 2024 presidential campaign, and he has also been selected to be the chief operating officer of the RNC.

At the RNC, Cairncross will be working directly under LaCivita.

The takeover is complete

Last week, the RNC agreed to fill its vacant leadership position - which resulted from the resignation of McDaniel - with Trump's hand-picked choices.

This includes Michael Whatley, the head of North Carolina's Republican Party - who is going to be the RNC's new chairman - and Lara Trump, former President Trump's daughter-in-law - who is going to be the RNC's co-chair. In addition to this, it was announced that LaCivita is going to be the RNC's chief operating officer.

This is all a rather long-winded way of saying that Trump has essentially completed his takeover of the RNC.

This has even been acknowledged by the Associate Press, which, last week, reported:

The Republican National Committee voted Friday to install Donald Trump’s handpicked leadership team, completing his takeover of the national party as the former president closes in on a third straight presidential nomination.

Whatley and the others have all vowed to make getting Trump elected in the 2024 election the RNC's top priority for this year. Whatley said:

The RNC is going to be the vanguard of a movement that will work tirelessly every single day to elect our nominee, Donald J. Trump, as the 47th President of the United States.
