GOP activists and officials want Lee Zeldin to run for RNC chair.

A new report says that he is getting calls from people asking him to run for RNC chair.

NBC News reported:

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., who lost a surprisingly close race for governor last week, has spoken with GOP elected officials and party activists who want him to run for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee, his media consultant said.

“He has received calls from around the country,” John Brabender said Sunday. “It’s likely that he will at least explore it. … He’s fielding calls, talking to people, listening to them, but it has not gone beyond that.”

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel has not said whether she will seek re-election at the party’s winter meeting in January, nor has Tommy Hicks, the co-chair. Under the party’s rules, the top two posts must be held by one man and one woman.

Zeldin is a big reason the GOP is set to take the House of representatives. He helped push many GOP in New York over the line.
