The Republican National Committee (RNC) has appointed U.S. Sen.-elect Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) to the newly formed Republican Party Advisory Council.
The new appointees will meet regularly to increase the party's influence. Specifically, the council will work toward "growing the party with Hispanic, Asian, and Black voters" and "engaging with suburban women, winning the youth vote, holding Big Tech accountable, supporting law enforcement, and delivering for Americans of faith."
"As we assess the midterms and plan for 2024, we are gathering a diverse range of respected leaders in our movement to join together and help chart a winning course in the years to come," said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. I am thrilled that this talented group of Republicans will be shoulder to shoulder with us as we work to grow our party, hold Democrats accountable, and elect Republicans."
Among the new appointees is Senator-elect Katie Britt, who won the seat in a landslide in the Nov. 8 midterm elections.
"This appointment is a true honor. I'm excited to work with Chairwoman McDaniel to build upon her successes at the RNC and to bring fresh blood into our party so we can effectively share our conservative message, defend our values and liberties, and fight for the future of our country," Britt said. "We are the party of parents, families, and hardworking Americans. I am going to bring the perspective of moms and dads across America to the table every single day, so that the American Dream lives on for our children and our children's children."
Also on the council is Kellyanne Conway, the campaign manager and senior counselor to former President Donald Trump.
"The Republican Party stands for freedom, fairness, security, opportunity, prosperity and individual liberty," Conway said. "Ensuring that voters, candidates and Americans of all backgrounds know this and can communicate it in an affable, accessible, actionable manner is the key to growing a party that under Chairwoman McDaniel's leadership has increased support among key stakeholders. This means finishing our sentences, offering specifics and solutions, and converting the double-digit trust the GOP has earned on key issues into wins at the ballot box. Democrats are unified - on how to divide America. Republicans must be unified - on how best to help a broken nation."
In addition to Britt and Conway, the other appointees are U.S. Rep.-Elect Monica De La Cruz (R-Texas), former Ohio Congressional candidate Madison Gesiotto Gilbert, U.S. Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), U.S. Rep.-elect John James (R-Mich.), Former Arizona Senate nominee Blake Masters, Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and U.S. Rep. Michelle Steele (R-Calif.)
