Alabama’s Vicki Drummond elected Republican National Committee secretary

The Republican National Committee met Friday and unanimously elected Alabama National Committeewoman Vicki Drummond as the secretary of the Republican National Committee.

Alabama Republican Chairman Terry Lathan congratulated Drummond on her election.

“The Alabama Republican Party is excited to congratulate our Alabama RNC Committeewoman Vicki Drummond on her election as Republican National Committee Secretary,” Lathan said. “We are extremely proud of Vicki and her selfless service to our state and national Republican Party. We look forward to working with Secretary Drummond and the rest of the Republican National Committee leadership to strengthen our Party ahead of the 2020 election cycle.”

Drummond was elected RNC Secretary. Tommy Hicks was elected as RNC Co-Chair, Ronna Romney McDaniel was elected to her second term as the Chair of the RNC, and Ron Kauffman was elected RNC Treasurer.

“The RNC is thrilled to welcome its new leadership team as we look ahead to 2020,” McDaniel said. “Tommy, Ron, and Vicki have worked hard in support of our Party and President Trump, and they will be critical to our efforts for a successful 2020 election cycle. I am grateful to our outgoing officers Bob, Tony, and Susie for their leadership and commitment to our Party throughout their many years of service.”

Under McDaniel, the RNC has raised record amounts of money. Trump asked McDaniel to stay on past the 2020 election.

“I am deeply grateful to have the full support of the RNC members for a second term,”  McDaniel said. “We’ve accomplished so much together, and I look forward to working with the members and our newly elected leadership on another successful presidential election cycle. Over the next two years, we will build upon our historic investments to grow our Party, engage with voters, and re-elect President Trump in 2020.”
