“I’ll take my whole salary and stick it right into the RNC — something I will believe in once we get this thing fixed,” Lindell said Monday during his broadcast on his Frank Speech platform.
Lindell announced his bid to run as chairman of the RNC in late November, challenging Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel for reelection after what he dubbed a failing GOP midterm performance.
If elected, it would be McDaniel’s fourth term as leader of the RNC.
The MyPillow CEO affirmed his plans to invest his entire RNC paycheck if elected, telling Insider that the money he would invest and fundraise would “actually go to doing good.”
“I would not take a paycheck from the RNC, I’d put all the money back into it. If I’m running it, the money that goes to it will actually go to doing good,” Lindell said. “I believe I can run the RNC and fix their problems, and it’s not going to take years and years.”
Lindell credited the “pretty adverse conditions” he has faced over the past few years, saying he is prepared for the job of RNC chairman and is “well-versed in how to run a company.”
In addition to Lindell and McDaniel, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said he would consider running for the position. On Monday, Harmeet Dhillon, an RNC member and lawyer whose firm represents former President Donald Trump, also announced her candidacy for RNC chairwoman while speaking to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson.
RNC members will vote on the chairmanship during the committee’s annual winter meeting in January.
