Former President Donald Trump said he will not endorse RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel's bid for reelection or Harmeet Dhillon, one of his attorneys seeking the post.
"I think they’re both good," Trump told Breitbart News on Friday. "I like them both."
The reelection team for McDaniel, whom Trump picked in 2017 to run the RNC, says she has enough votes among the 168 committee members for a fourth term.
Dhillon, a committee member from California, has garnered support from key Republican figures and state groups including the Texas and Arizona Republican Parties as well as longtime RNC member Morton Blackwell, who founded The Leadership Institute, a conservative training group.
Under McDaniel's leadership, Republicans lost the House in 2018, both the presidency and Congress in 2020 and had a lackluster performance in 2022.
