Just over one year ago, on April 3, 2017, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and RNC Finance Chair Steve Wynn rolled out the newest members of their finance leadership team. Among those charged with leading Republican fundraising efforts (and covering up scandals): National Deputy Finance Chairmen Michael Cohen and Elliott Broidy. You can read their press release here!
