With influence on the rise, Britt to headline new RNC Advisory Council

Just weeks after her election, U.S. Sen.-elect Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) is seeing her influence grow within the Republican Party and conservative movement.

Alabama’s soon-to-be junior senator has been appointed by Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to serve on a new GOP Advisory Council.

The council, according to a Tuesday release from the RNC, will be charged with spearheading coalition efforts to grow the Republican electorate in 2024 and future cycles.

In announcing the council’s formation, McDaniel said the GOP leaders represent as “diverse range” of talent that will position the party for future growth.

“As we assess the midterms and plan for 2024, we are gathering a diverse range of respected leaders in our movement to join together and help chart a winning course in the years to come,” said McDaniel. “I am thrilled that this talented group of Republicans will be shoulder to shoulder with us as we work to grow our party, hold Democrats accountable, and elect Republicans.”

Britt and her fellow council members will hold routine meetings with McDaniel and act in advisory role to make inroads with Hispanic, Asian and Black voters.

Additionally, the council will advise on how to effectively target suburban women, engage with young voters, hold Big Tech to account, support law enforcement, and be a voice for religious Americans.

“This appointment is a true honor,” said Britt. “I’m excited to work with Chairwoman McDaniel to build upon her successes at the RNC and to bring fresh blood into our party so we can effectively share our conservative message, defend our values and liberties, and fight for the future of our country. We are the party of parents, families, and hardworking Americans.

“I am going to bring the perspective of moms and dads across America to the table every single day, so that the American Dream lives on for our children and our children’s children.”

Members of the RNC’s Republican Party Advisory Council are:

  • U.S. Sen.-elect Katie Britt (R-Montgomery)
  • GOP strategist Kellyanne Conway
  • U.S. Rep.-Elect Monica De La Cruz (R-Texas)
  • Former Ohio congressional nominee Madison Gesiotto Gilbert
