Lara Trump Announces Run For RNC Co-Chair

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, officially launched a bid to become co-chair of the Republican National Committee on Tuesday, according to Newsmax.

The move comes one day after chair Ronna McDaniel and her co-chair Drew McKissick announced their resignations. McDaniel will resign from her position after Super Tuesday, according to Just the News.

The announcement also comes one day after Trump-backed Michael Whatley announced his bid to replace McDaniel.

“@WhatleyNCGOP will do an incredible job! It will be my honor to work alongside him for the future of this country — I’m excited to officially announce my candidacy for co-chair of the RNC,” Trump announced on X.

“I promise you that I will be laser-focused on election integrity, voter turnout, and ensuring every dollar spent goes towards winning!” she continued.

Lara Trump wrote a letter to the 168 RNC members saying she was “proud to have the endorsement of my father-in-law and 45th president, Donald J. Trump, for this position and understand the fundamental importance of this role,” Politico reported.

“In the coming days, I look forward to connecting with you, the members of the RNC, and hopefully earning your vote,” she continued.

On Monday night, Donald Trump called for a leadership change at the Republican National Committee. He wants to install a slate of loyalists into the GOP’s political machine before the former president formally receives the party’s 2024 presidential nomination.

The announcement marks the implementation of Donald Trump’s plan to marry the RNC to his presidential campaign. As part of the restructuring, Trump is planning to install Chris LaCivita as chief operating officer of the RNC, according to Newsmax.

In the letter to the RNC, Lara Trump focused on the “election integrity program” and doing a “deep dive through all of the RNC’s existing contracts and vendor agreements, identifying what’s useful and what isn’t.”

Lara Trump and Whatley are predicted to handily win the majority decision when RNC elections are held on March 8 in Houston, a date that happens on McDaniel’s last day on the job.
