“A party official close to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel insisted the new credit line was nothing unusual.” Sure, Jan.

The cash-strapped Republican National Committee will consider opening a line of credit when members gather for their winter meeting that starts Tuesday in Las Vegas, The Washington Times has learned.
The credit-line question will be put to a vote by RNC members at the meeting.
The RNC‘s money problems have been mounting since officials announced last summer a $15 million shortfall from projected fundraising levels, with both big-dollar and small-donor contributions drying up.
“They’re going to ask the members to take a vote on opening up a line of credit for the RNC, which would allow the RNC to borrow money,” an alarmed RNC member told The Times.
A party official close to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel insisted the new credit line was nothing unusual. The official said the executive committee authorizes more credit every year in case it is needed, but that does not mean the party will draw from it.
I, for one, can’t imagine why the RNC is having money issues when they’re all living large on the backs of donors. Jennifer Van Laar of the conservative Redstate.org detailed their excesses in 2022 (Analysis Shows RNC Spent Millions Spent on Private Jets, Limos, Luxury Retreats, Broadway Shows) which got a lot of attention, but then looked at their expenses in December of 2023 and it seemed they haven’t changed their practices at all.
One thing is certain, Ronna McDaniel does love her private jets and limousines.
And lots of fresh-cut flowers.
The thread by Van Laar is quite long and detailed. Here’s a link to her original post in 2022.
In case you missed my EXCLUSIVE report last year (@GOPChairwoman is still pissed about this; her minions are still talking s**t abt me):
