On Monday, leading Republican presidential contender and 45th President Donald J. Trump scored another massive endorsement, this time from Indiana Senator Mike Braun (R-IN).
"As a Main Street Entrepreneur and political outsider, I’ve seen firsthand how the Washington swamp works against Hoosiers and works overtime to hamper our prosperity," Braun wrote in a press release. "Donald Trump is a businessman and outsider. Together, we took on the Washington swamp with a historic victory in the 2018 Indiana Senate race. We installed constitutional conservatives on the Supreme Court who have protected the unborn and our Second Amendment rights, and we disrupted the cozy, self-serving Washington elites who are bankrupting our country."
Mike Braun is referencing Trump's endorsement of Braun in his explosive 2018 Senate run, defeating Democrat incumbent Joe Donnelly, who surprisingly held a Senate seat in what has been a reliably red state, only voting for the Democrat presidential candidate once since 1964, in Barack Obama's 2008 landslide victory.
"Donald Trump is the candidate capable of returning us to the America First policies that delivered unmatched prosperity and security for the American people. I give Donald Trump my endorsement for President of the United States," Braun said.
Trump has scored a number of massive endorsements from Republicans in recent memory, including the endorsement of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD). As such, Trump voters are rallying around the 45th president in record numbers. Simply put, Trump is in as strong of a position with Republican voters as ever. Trump is still the decisive leader in the Republican field, and he and his campaign show no signs of slipping up. The MAGA movement is thriving, and Republican voters continue to appreciate Trump's America First vision for the nation at large. If other Republicans want to bridge the gap between them and Trump, they must change their strategy big league. But as of right now, the coveted 2024 Republican presidential nomination is certainly Donald J. Trump's to lose.
More impressively, Trump remains a potent force to win the presidency in 2024. The Real Clear Politics polling average has Biden and Trump neck and neck in most surveys. Donald Trump has even managed to take the lead away from Joe Biden in recent polls. 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.
Republicans must rally around the eventual nominee if they want to win big league in 2024 -- taking back the White House, and, with it, the Senate and House as well.
