On Monday, Kansas Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) announced his support for the 2024 presidential campaign of leading Republican presidential contender and 45th President Donald J. Trump. As such, Marshall called for the immediate end of the 'primary charade' - which means the campaigns of the rest of the 2024 Republican presidential contenders.
"Marshall, an ally of Trump since the former president's one term in office, said he is endorsing Trump to bolster the priorities of farmers, restore border security, and slash inflation rates caused by the Biden administration," a statement released on Trump's email service reads. "'Since the day Joe Biden stepped foot in the Oval Office, this White House declared war on American agriculture and American energy independence in pursuit of their Green New Deal agenda and electric vehicle mandates... Joe Biden declared war on American sovereignty by opening our borders, ceding control to the cartels, allowing nearly 10 million illegal aliens into our country, and permitting lethal fentanyl to pour into our communities.'"
Marshall ended his statement by saying, "It's time for the GOP to unite behind President Trump. Let's end the political primary charade and focus on retiring Joe Biden." Marshall's reasoning is clear. After all, even with recent indictments, President Trump has managed to be a unifying figure for Republicans, and voters are rallying around the 45th president in record numbers. As such, Donald Trump is in as strong of a position with Republican voters as ever. That includes 2016, where the primary cycle was at least somewhat competitive in terms of the raw popular vote. Yet, in 2023, the Republican Party is embracing the Ultra-MAGA agenda and the leader behind that agenda. Donald J. Trump, in truly record numbers.
As such, Trump remains a potent force to win the presidency in 2024. The Real Clear Politics polling average has him besting Joe Biden in nationwide polling in recent weeks, and this is despite the fact that Republican presidential candidates can generally afford to underperform in the popular vote while still winning the election - as they did in 2000 and 2016. As such, it stands to reason that the radical, far-left Democrats would use any means necessary to gain a much-needed political advantage - including indicting their most likely political opponent. Trump's dominance is impressive indeed. Patriots all over the nation must rally behind the eventual Republican nominee as conservatives try to undo the damage caused by the Biden administration.
