Ronna McDaniel responds to Cawthorn diatribe: ‘I don’t know what Dark MAGA is’

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel responded to a recent tirade from Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., after the congressman lost his GOP primary last week to State Sen. Chuck Edwards.

Cawthorn had called for Republicans to stop with “genteel politics,” the “rise of the new right” and for “Dark MAGA to truly take command.”

When asked what that meant on “Fox News Sunday,” McDaniel had no idea.

“I don’t know what ‘Dark MAGA’ is. It sounds like something from Star Wars,” McDaniel quipped.

On a more serious note, McDaniel commended Cawthorn for conceding, stressing the importance of Republicans keeping that seat.

“We need to focus on the Democrats, and I would say this to every Republican: They are the ones in control, they are the ones destroying our country, and Republicans who are fighting each other constantly, that is not helping us defeat Democrats in November. And that needs to be the focus,” McDaniel said.
