  • In November, former President Donald Trump officially began his third run for the White House.
  • He made the first big announcement of a 2024 Republican presidential run.
  • Though he has the most endorsements of any Republican candidate, his support comes from just a minority of elected officials.

In November, former President Donald Trump officially launched his second presidential run. Though he has more endorsements than anybody else at the moment, many Republicans are still choosing to sit on the sidelines.

While Trump faces criminal accusations in New York, 11 senators and almost 70 representatives have indicated their support for his 2024 presidential run as of Wednesday, October 18. The former president has also received the support of four governors.

Donald Trump was the first big Republican to declare his campaign for president in 2024, but his party as a whole has yet to rally behind him. The vast majority of sitting Republicans have said that they are waiting to see who else joins the race before making up their minds.

Trump’s presidency saw him have a firm hold on the Republican Party. His capacity to sway Republican primary voters and seek revenge on his intraparty rivals has been on display even after his tenure is up and his followers launch an unprecedented attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Some people believe that Trump’s influence is dwindling because of the Republican Party’s lackluster performance in the midterm elections. The GOP gained just a few of seats in the House while the Democrats kept their Senate majority.

“Many of Trump’s supporters and supporters from the past are still standing by him.”

Notable Republicans who have publicly endorsed Trump for president in 2024 include as follows:

That’s four governors

  • Kristi Noem: At a rally in South Dakota, Governor Kristi Noem, who is running for vice president, backed her predecessor.

Eleven senators

  • Mike Braun: According to Indiana senator and gubernatorial candidate Mike Braun, who gave an interview on Fox News in September, Trump is the “candidate capable of returning us to the America First policies that delivered unmatched prosperity and security for the American people.”
