MyPillow CEO and America First activist Mike Lindell is reportedly considering challenging Ronna McDaniel for chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Lindell raised the possibility of challenging McDaniel during his podcast.
After the Republican Party saw underwhelming results during the recent midterm elections, Lindell said that McDaniel has “failed in her leadership” role.
He said that the Republican Party needs a fresh perspective to see electoral success.
New York Gubernatorial candidate and Representative Lee Zeldin (R-Ny.) has also considered throwing his hat in the ring to contest McDaniel’s re-election.
Last week, Zeldin said he was “very seriously considering” running for the top position in the Republican Party.
Committee members will vote to elect the new RNC chair during their winter meeting in January.

Mike Lindell, the founder and CEO of MyPillow, is reportedly planning to challenge GOP chair Ronna McDaniel for chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Lindell made raised the possibility on his livestream this week, asking fans if they would support him in a bid against the chairwoman following an underwhelming performance by Republicans in the midterms, Newsweek reports.
“One of the things I will tell you, you know, [we] will never ever stop to get rid of these machines and make this the best elections in world history in our country,” said Lindell, referring to his unsubstantiated claims that voting machine tampering cost former President Donald Trump the 2020 election. “We need someone, everybody, and I would step into that, if God willing.”
Lindell had his phone confiscated by the FBI at a Hardees drive-through in September, possibly in connection to an alleged scheme to permit unauthorized individuals to access voting machines.
