The Alabama GOP (ALGOP) announced plans on Monday to introduce a vote of no-confidence in the reelection bid of Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

In a vote held on January 7, ALGOP's Steering Committee voted to introduce a no-confidence vote in McDaniel's reelection, joining ever-growing calls in the GOP for a change in leadership.

"We believe that RNC leadership needs a new vision for future elections," ALGOP said in a statement.

"We believe that the Republican Party needs to stand strong for the party platform, and the principles that made this country great. We believe that the RNC needs fresh, new leadership who can inspire and lead grassroots Republicans to victory."

"For these reasons, the Alabama Republican Party's Steering Committee cannot support or endorse Ronna McDaniel for RNC Chair and declare our vote of no-confidence in her leadership. We encourage all RNC members across the country to support new leadership at the RNC Winter Meeting."

McDaniel has served as the RNC chair since Jan. 19, 2017, after receiving the endorsement of then-President Donald Trump.

Support for McDaniel has dwindled in the wake of the November 2022 election, with notable conservative commentators such as Charlie Kirk, Ben Shapiro, Mark Levin, Megyn Kelly, Dan Bongino and Tucker Carlson criticizing the RNC's success under her leadership.

Many conservatives have flocked to support McDaniel's opponent, Harmeet Dhillon, an RNC committeewoman from California and election law attorney who has represented Trump.

"You're flying on private planes with the money that, like, sweet, terrified Republican voters have sent to you from the middle of the country," Politico reported Carlson saying of McDaniel. "And you're losing elections. No. If you win elections, well, we can talk about it. If you're losing, get out. We cannot reward incompetence."

Many have criticized the RNC's election performance under McDaniel's leadership since the RNC has lost or underperformed in every election since she took the reins.

A survey conducted by the Trafalgar Group in late December found roughly 73% of Republican voters said the RNC should elect new leadership, and 68% said they believed RNC leadership was ineffective in electing GOP candidates in 2022.

The Florida and Texas GOPs announced plans in December to likewise introduce a vote of no-confidence in McDaniel's bid.

"Under Chairwoman McDaniel's leadership, the GOP lost both houses of Congress and the White House, and seriously underperformed in 2022 by further losing ground in the Senate and only barely winning a majority in the House," the Texas resolution said.
