Lara Trump Officially Announces Run For RNC Co-Chair

After much anticipation, Lara Trump officially announced that she will run for the Republican National Committee (RNC) co-chair Tuesday afternoon.

The daughter-in-law to former President Donald Trump, Lara, announced the news in a post on X.

“I’m excited to officially announce my candidacy for co-chair of the RNC. I promise you that I will be laser-focused on election integrity, voter turnout, and ensuring every dollar spent goes towards winning!” she wrote.

She also took the time to endorse North Carolina GOP Chairman Michael Whatley as he campaigns to replace outgoing RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, who announced a day earlier that she and co-chair Drew McKissick were resigning.

Donald Trump endorsed Whatley as well, along with senior adviser Chris LaCivita as the chief financial officer.

According to Politico, Lara wrote a letter to the RNC’s 168 members, stating that 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.”

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

She also wrote about her belief that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from her father-in-law and how it was important for the Republican Party to establish the “most effective battleground state election integrity program” that has ever been seen.

A source familiar with the discussion reported that Trump had asked Lara to throw her hat into the ring for RNC co-chair. She has been a top campaigner for the former president, going on TV shows and following him on the campaign trail.

In 2020, Lara was a senior adviser on Trump’s reelection campaign and is married to Trump’s second son, Eric Trump.

Before helping her father-in-law’s political career, she was a producer for the television news magazine “Inside Edition,” which gave her the experience during the Trump administration to host and produce “Real News Update,” a pro-Trump weekly webcast.

The RNC will hold its election on Mar. 8 in Houston, Texas when both McDaniels and McKissick step down. Then, candidates for chair and co-chair must win over the majority of the 168 members.
