BISMARCK — Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel will speak at an event in Bismarck on Wednesday, June 8, to raise money for the North Dakota GOP.

Republican Gov. Doug Burgum will also speak at the event held on the rooftop of the International Bank & Trust building near the state Capitol. The event will not be open to the press or the public, according to a party official.

McDaniel, a member of the Romney political family, has served in the RNC's top role since 2017.

North Dakota GOP Chairman Perrie Schafer wrote in an email to the party's mailing list that "Chairwoman McDaniel and her team have done a great deal to build the largest election integrity team in the RNC’s history to secure the ballot box ahead of these critical midterm elections."

Schafer, who did not respond to Forum News Service's request for comment, said in the email he looks forward to hearing about the RNC's election security efforts during McDaniel's visit.


Following the 2020 presidential election, McDaniel echoed former President Donald Trump's disproven claims of election misconduct, including in her home state of Michigan. McDaniel has since stated that President Joe Biden won the election, but she maintained that Republicans should still be focused on preventing mass voter fraud.
