The niece of 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney wishes her uncle was in the White House, but vows she'll support Donald Trump – the candidate Romney publicly attacked
in a brutal takedown speech last week.
In an interview by MSNBC's Chris Matthews
in Detroit on Tuesday night – where Trump sailed to victory
in the state's primary – Ronna Romney McDaniel said she believes the real estate billionaire is "committed to staying in the [Republican] party."
McDaniel said that rallies she's attended for Trump in Michigan are "not a traditional Republican crowd," but that she's "not surprised" he won the state handily.
"If he's our nominee, I'm going to support him," she declared.
She also said her uncle is not an option for the party's nominee if there is a contested GOP convention this summer.
"He said he's not interested," she said. "I wish he were president now. But I am pleased with our field. Let's see what happens."
