Mike Lindell, CEO of My Pillow and conservative hero for his uncompromising defense of American values, is considering challenging Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel for the head of the Republican National Committee (RNC). Lindell asserts McDaniel has failed at leadership as chair, and the party needs a new “output.” Lindell said on his TV platform that he will never stop trying to get rid of the Dominion voting machines that keep causing chaos at the polls and asked viewers to support his decision to run against McDaniel.
Lindell will make the announcement next week. The CEO also expressed frustration that McDaniel has not addressed election integrity or the false Biden win in the 2020 election. Lindell said the public wants new leadership, and he does not care if it’s a paid position. According to him, the RNC needs to be run by a businessman, and he has a strong reputation in the business world for being successful.

Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY) has also announced a potential run for chair against McDaniel. Zeldin had a strong performance in the New York governor’s race, although he did not take the seat. He emailed House committee members about his potential bid for the Chair spot.
In his email, Zeldin said it is time for the Republican party to transform and win back the Presidency in 2024. He expressed concerns about the number of Republican seats held in Congress and ballot races nationwide. Zeldin said, “The Republican Party needs to be all in to do everything in its power to save America.”
McDaniel has not commented on Lindell or Zeldin’s announcements. She said she would run for re-election contingent on her popularity with the members of the Republican Party. Lindell and Zeldin will be up for a hard-pressed challenge because McDaniel still maintains high popularity among Republican party voters. She has nearly 100 of the 168 voting members in support of her re-election currently. Most of her supporting members have already pledged their votes as well. Zeldin and McDaniel are close allies with former President Donald Trump — there is no word yet on Trump’s opinion of Lindell.
