“Now I ask the grassroots conservatives throughout the nation to affix me so you’ll be able to really feel the ability of the folks. It is time to cease the tradition of giving up and dropping. Resign, Rona!”

She has highlighted Republican management of the Home as proof of the success of the Republican Nationwide Committee on her watch.
