The niece of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has been tapped to replace Reince Priebus as new chair of the the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Ronna Romney McDaniel, who served as state chairman for the Michigan Republican Party and helped Donald Trump win the Wolverine State, will be the new GOP leader, Politico reported.

The 43-year-old mother of two is the second woman ever to chair the RNC and "intends to push back against the notion that the Democratic Party is the party of women," the political news website said.

"As President-Elect Trump has directed us to do, we are going to keep winning," McDaniel told Politico.

"America has two parties: Theirs, the elite, coastal, redistributionist party of the status quo. And ours the national, opportunity for everyone, party of change."

Priebus is leaving the post to become Trump's White House Chief of Staff.
