Reports indicate that a major shakeup is underway at the RNC, with Donald Trump’s new leadership team slashing dozens of positions following Lara Trump’s appointment as co-chair of the RNC.

Ronna McDaniel resigned as RNC chairwoman last week following several electoral losses during her seven-year tenure.

Michael Whatley, Chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, was elected as the new RNC chair, while Lara Trump was elected as co-chair.

According to Politico, over 60 RNC staffers will be let go.

Politico reported:

Donald Trump’s newly installed leadership team at the Republican National Committee on Monday began the process of pushing out dozens of officials, according to two people close to the Trump campaign and the RNC.

All told, the expectation is that more than 60 RNC staffers who work across the political, communications and data departments will be let go. Those being asked to resign include five members of the senior staff, though the names were not made public. Additionally, some vendor contracts are expected to be cut.

In a letter to some political and data staff, Sean Cairncross, the RNC’s new chief operating officer, said that the new committee leadership was “in the process of evaluating the organization and staff to ensure the building is aligned” with its vision. “During this process, certain staff are being asked to resign and reapply for a position on the team.”
