At this point, it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that Donald Trump will again be throwing his hat in the ring for the 2024 presidential race, much to the dismay of Democrats everywhere.
And, if we’re being honest, there are plenty of Republicans who aren’t exactly thrilled about the idea either, but who also recognize that Trump holds incredible sway over the party’s most enthusiastic voters.
Trump has hinted that he may announce his candidacy as soon as November 15th, (an ambitious date to be sure), and he’s already picking up some rather profound endorsements ahead of his official declaration.
House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) endorsed former President Donald Trump’s expected bid to run for president in 2024, saying “it’s very clear” Trump is the leader of the GOP.
Stefanik released a statement as Trump said last week that he would very soon announce his candidacy for president in 2024. The New York Times initially broke Stefanik’s endorsement for Trump. Stefanik explained her reasoning in a statement to Breitbart News.
Stefanik was deliberate in her statement.
“Republican voters determine who is the leader of the Republican Party and it’s very clear President Trump is the leader of the Republican party. What the media fails to report is that we just won the midterms and flipped the House,” Stefanik in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.
It should be noted that Stefanik’s assertion regarding the makeup of the House has not yet been verified by the Associated Press.
