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.”
