Lara Trump Officially Announces Run For RNC Co-Chair

On Tuesday, Lara Trump, daughter-in-law of presumptive GOP nominee and 45th President Donald J. Trump, officially announced her run for Republican National Committee (RNC) co-chair following Ronna McDaniel's announcement earlier this week that she would be stepping down as chair on March 8.

Lara Trump sent a letter to the 168 members of the RNC, in which she said she was thrilled 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." Given Trump's renown with the Republican base and dominant hold over the Republican presidential nominations, this is a big endorsement indeed. With epic wins in South Carolina and Michigan, the sky is truly the limit for the MAGA movement in 2024. 

As Lara Trump referenced, Donald Trump gave his endorsement to his daughter-in-law earlier this month, saying in a statement, "The RNC MUST be a good partner in the Presidential election. It must do the work we expect from the national Party and do it flawlessly. That means helping to ensure fair and transparent elections across the country, getting out the vote everywhere — even in parts of the country where it won't be easy — and working with my campaign, as the Republican presumptive nominee for President, to win this election and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

Lara Trump continued in a letter obtained by POLITICO, "In the coming days, I look forward to connecting with you, the members of the RNC, and hopefully earning your vote." POLITICO added that "the RNC will hold its leadership election on March 8 at a meeting in Houston, where the candidates for chair and co-chair will need to win a majority of support from the committee's 168 members." The outlet noted that Lara Trump would likely prevail quite easily; a Donald J. Trump endorsement is a powerful tool to have in one's arsenal. 

As the DC Enquirer previously reported, Ronna McDaniel officially announced her resignation on Monday, saying, "It has been the honor and privilege of my life to serve the Republican National Committee for seven years as Chairwoman to elect Republicans and grow our Party ... I have decided to step aside at our Spring Training on March 8 in Houston to allow our nominee to select a Chair of their choosing." She concluded her remarks by adding, "The RNC has historically undergone change once we have a nominee, and it has always been my intention to honor that tradition."
