Sharon Day to join Trump administration


The Republican National Committee named its incoming leaders Wednesday -- and broke the news that its co-chair, Fort Lauderdale's Sharon Day, plans to join President-elect Donald Trump's administration.

The party named Ronna Romney McDaniel of Michigan as its new chair, and Bob Paduchik of Ohio as its new co-chair.

"After a six-year tenure at the RNC characterized by substantial Republican gains at every level of government, Chairman Reince Priebus will serve in the Trump Administration as President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Chief of Staff," the RNC said in a statement. "Co-Chair Sharon Day looks forward to joining the Trump Administration as well."

It's unclear when Day would join the Trump team, or in what capacity.

"We're still determining and discussing," Day told the Miami Herald in a brief phone interview. "But I look forward to helping do  whatever I can to make sure the president-elect is successful."

In the party's statement, she said, "I am excited to begin working alongside Bob Paduchik as our Deputy Co-Chair. Our goals will remain keeping our Party strong in every state and putting ourselves in position to win elections wherever Republicans are running."

Day was a fixture at Trump's Florida rallies during the campaign.
