Laura Loomer Wins: Harmeet Dhillon Backs Out of California GOP ‘Proportional’ Rule Position, Now Backs ‘Winner-Take-All’

It’s hard to overstate the impact Ms. Laura Loomer had/is in blocking a California scheme that appears to be part of a larger GOPe plan to dilute the distribution of primary election delegates against President Trump’s interests and his supporters.

Ms. Loomer exposed a three-week-old plan by RNC state leadership Jessica Patterson, Shawn Steel and Harmeet Dhillon to change the outcome of California’s Republican primary to a proportional distribution of candidates.

Loomer published the contents of a leaked email from the three organizers Patterson, Steel and Dhillon.

When people realized what was happening, all behind closed doors and hidden from public criticism, outrage began to surface.

Today, after initially trying to justify her position, Ms. Dhillon reverses course and now supports the winner-takes-all option. An option that was always available, but was purposefully ignored in the plan to deliver delegates through proportional distribution. As you will see below, Dhillon, a member of the RNC Rules Committee, claims he was unaware of the rule and was mistaken by the statements of Ms. Patterson and Mr. Steel.

First, here Statement of Mrs. Loomers on hearing Dhillon’s retraction:

RNC CA committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon is now backtracking. Did he just send an email saying he supports California’s winner-take-all threshold for delegates, that this is his “personal opinion” and that he doesn’t speak for Jessica Patterson and Shawn Steel? and that he “regrets” that the CA GOP’s backdoor plan to amend the statute to eliminate the winner-takes-all threshold was not communicated to the public and delegates.

That’s all well and good, but if that’s the case, why did he sign the proposed amendment that was sent on his behalf on June 17th by CAGOP President Jessica Patterson?

In other words, they got caught and now they have to save face.

If this is how Harmeet feels, then I strongly suggest that he say so publicly and not support the bylaw change at the CAGOP executive meeting on July 29th.

I hope everyone can see that I never planned to tell the delegates this information until I blew the whistle.

This is very easy. The RNC’s own rulebook says that individual states can keep their “majority-takes-all” threshold for delegates.

There is no need to change the rules, even if the Primary CA is now older. If this is how Harmeet suddenly feels now, then he should oppose the bylaw amendment and keep the language as it is so that all delegates are awarded to the winner and there is no way to have a convention negotiated

That’s just a really long way of saying, “We got caught doing something we shouldn’t have done behind closed doors. Now the cat’s out of the bag, and I know this isn’t going away, so let me try to distance- me from Jessica Patterson and Shawn Steel so I can try to save face.”

The only way this will go away in any way is if the 3 California RNC reps tear up the statute amendment and keep the winner take all language.

There could very well be protests outside the CAGOP Executive meeting on July 29 unless this is changed. (Read more)

If you read Dhillon’s statement carefully, you will notice that a lot of false language is used in an effort to cover his tracks. She appears to be portrayed as being duped by the other participants, which, when combined with the defense attempts of her pro-DeSantis allies, appears to be Dhillon’s way of getting away from the sunlight.

The woman on the RNC National Committee, who ran to become the chair of the RNC and sits on the RNC Rules Committee, now claims she didn’t know the rules and doesn’t agree with the content of the letter that was decided three weeks ago. It seems something happened between the deal with the rest of the managers and today. That thing was likely Laura Loomer. Read Dhillon’s letter carefully.


By comparison, this was Ms. Dhillon’s position 18 hours ago.

Again, please note that Ms. Dhillon, who ran for RNC Chair 5 months ago, is the California RNC Committee Member and serves on the National RNC Rules Committee .

Suddenly, all the things in Ms. Dhillon’s previous position are said to be false in Ms. Dhillon’s current position.

Yesterday, the rules of the RNC were “legally necessary” and the deadlines “will be”. Today, the RNC rules do not make proportional requirements mandatory, and there is plenty of time for debate and discussion. Imagine.

In the bigger picture, Ms. Loomer’s sunlight supernova has now put the RNC/RGA team and DeSantis in a vulnerable position. There is a chance that people will start to understand that all the GOP candidates are not trying to win the 2024 nomination; rather they are in the running as part of the Grand Club’s plan to win collections of individual delegates that can be assembled into a larger delegate block at the RNC convention.

California was just one state that was arranging its rules to participate in Trump’s blocking effort.
