WASHINGTON, D.C. (FLV) – U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds announced he will run against New York Rep. Elise Stefanik to serve as House Republican Conference Chair.

The Daily Caller first reported the news about Byron informing colleagues Thursday regarding his run. In a letter, Donalds said the party must outreach to non-traditional media and constituencies.

“Our party needs fresh ideas and perspectives when outlining our commitment to the American people. Over the past two years, it’s been abundantly clear that families across the nation are dissatisfied with the political climate and are desperate for change,” Donalds wrote to the conference in a letter obtained by the Daily Caller.

Donalds reportedly is one of at least five black Republicans who will serve in the 118th Congress.

“I will lead our Conference with efficiency, efficacy, and energy that will attract more Americans to our movement,” Donalds wrote. “As your next Conference Chair, we must zero in on a few critical objectives.”

Donalds’ letter outlined other objectives including creating a regional communications team to go over relevant news and communications strategies.

“We have to ramp up our efforts to connect with the people via all forms of social media, such as Twitter, Gettr, Facebook, Rumble, YouTube, and Instagram, as well as various podcasts and niche channels,” Donalds said.

The congressman wants to bring back “rapid-response groups” and organize a “tactical communications approach.”

“When news breaks or specific topics rise to prominence, specialists in that arena will deploy to communicate our message to other Members, the press, and our constituents,” Donalds wrote.
