MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell announced Monday that he is running to chair the Republican National Committee.

“I am 100% running for the RNC chairman against [current chair] Ronna McDaniel,” Lindell told Steve Bannon, an ally to former President Trump and ex-White House strategist.

“I’m all in … and one of the things that one of the big donors said to me, he said, Mike, everybody wants you to be head of the RNC, some of them just don’t know it yet,” he said. Axios reached out to the RNC for comment.

Lindell, also a Trump ally and a 2020 election denier, has not talked to the former president about his decision to run, he told Axios.

Lindell, who has repeatedly pushed false claims of election fraud, said that “all of this country needs …. look into the election integrity.”
