Family Research Council President Tony Perkins called on Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to resign on the Todd Starnes Radio Show Wednesday.
The Christian conservative leader told host Todd Starnes that McDaniel announced the “RNC Pride Coalition” without consulting RNC leadership over the weekend.

“I think it’s time for her to take up something else and leave the party to those who I think can chart a path forward, restore what has been lost, and make sure that the Republicans, the conservatives regain the majority – both in Congress and continue to see victories in states across the nation,” Perkins said.
“I think she needs to step down,” Perkins said. “She has outlived her purpose at the RNC.”
The RNC is “embracing this agenda that is hostile to a large portion of their constituency,” Perkins said, adding that McDaniel is moving in a direction “incompatible” with religious liberty.
“If the Republicans get this wrong they become a Democrat-lite party, and I think they begin to lose immensely,” Perkins explained, “because Republicans disproportionately get their support from social conservatives, they have to be mindful of that and they have to continue to advance a values platform that is consistent with the traditional values that made America great.”
Perkins urged listeners to stop sending money to the RNC and instead support candidates directly or support organizations like FRC that will ensure values are not compromised.
“There are concerns that Christian conservatives are being shoved aside in the party and that is a big problem,” Starnes concluded. “We’ve got to get it together. There’s got to be a way to work together.”
