In a stamp of approval that likely has Mitt Romney gnashing his teeth, his niece has declared her support for Donald Trump.

And Ronna Romney McDaniel, appearing on Fox News' "The Kelly File," said she's sure her uncle won't take the news likely.

What's more, McDaniel joked, she wouldn't be surprised if she's cut out of the family fortune for supporting a candidate the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee labelled a "con man" and a "fake."

McDaniel, who serves as chair of the Michigan Republican Party, told Megyn Kelly that as a GOP delegate in The Wolverine State, she has pledged her vote for Trump at this July's Republican convention.

"I left that [news] up to my dad to tell my uncle. That was not a phone call I wanted to make," said McDaniel, who jokingly added, "I'm pretty sure I'm out of the will at this point."

Trump won the Michigan primary last month with 36.5 percent of the vote.

"As an RNC delegate, I chose to bind myself to the majority vote of Michigan. I remain neutral as chair, but I will be a Trump delegate in Cleveland," McDaniel said.

McDaniel's mother was married to Mitt's brother, G. Scott Romney.
