The Michigan native who chairs the Republican National Committee says the GOP can bring opposing factions in the party together to fight a common enemy – President Joe Biden.

The GOP has become increasingly divided since losing both Congress and the White House in 2020.

Some Republicans are heavily courting Donald Trump’s base of supporters, while other GOP members of Congress voted to impeach and remove the former president.

But Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said on the C.B.S. program “Face the Nation” that the party can heal its internal split, because President Joe Biden is not building bridges with the GOP.

“He hasn’t done that on anything, including this recent boondoggle of a stimulus bill of two trillion dollars of grab bags for Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. You’re seeing more and more Republicans recognize we need to unite around how do we win back these majorities and stop Biden in his tracks.”

McDaniel says the GOP opposes what she calls “extreme elements” in the party, wants to recruit more women, and will press to re-open schools and the economy.
