Republican National Committee chair defends party unity as divisions grow [View all]

"I am seeing more enthusiasm than I saw in 2016. I study the data every day," the RNC chair told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, when pressed, on Sunday. "We know that our voters are going to turn out on Election Day. They don't trust mail-in balloting as much."

Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who is up for reelection in November, was recorded telling supporters in a phone call that Trump has routinely sold out U.S. allies, disrespected women, mocked evangelicals behind closed doors and "spends like a drunken sailor."

“Ben's been there for a long time. It's not surprising. It's the only time he gets news is when he criticizes this president,” McDaniel said. “But the party, and the energy we're seeing on the ground, and the rallies, and what we're seeing for this president is unprecedented in terms of the support he's receiving from Republicans across the country.”

She is Mitt Romney's niece. Later in the linked article she essentially blamed Michigan Govenor Whitmer for trying to blame tRump for the kidnapping threat against her, and defended the "lock her up" chants at tRump's rally.
