The GOP needs to be united if they want to defeat the Left in the 2024 elections. But not all Republicans are on board.

And a mutiny arsis in the Republican Party after these senators take a stand against Donald Trump.

The Republican National Convention (RNC) is set to take place this summer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Former President Donald Trump will almost certainly be chosen as the GOP nominee for president during the convention.

But some Republican senators don’t plan on attending the convention at all.

According to reports from The Hill, Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Todd Young (R-IN), and Thom Tillis (R-NC) have announced that they won’t be attendance at the RNC.

Republican Sens. Mike Rounds (SD), Susan Collins (ME), Bill Cassidy (LA), Jerry Moran (KS), and Rand Paul (KY) haven’t decided yet if they will attend, according to the news outlet.

From the senators listed who are not going to the RNC, Tillis is the only one who has offered their support of Trump.

Sen. John Thune (R-SD) discussed the issue of some GOP lawmakers not attending the RNC, telling The Hill that “Everybody’s got to make their own call about it, but it’s part of our political life.”

“The conventions have been going on for a long time, and I think the parties are tasked with trying to pull people together and make the decisions that are important to the leadership of our country.”

“I understand if there are people for whom it is not a big priority.”

Murkowski and Young explained to The Hill that they won’t go to the convention because they already have travel plans in place.

The Hill reports that Romney’s reason for not attending stems from the fact that he is very much against Trump and voted twice to convict the former president during impeachment trials.

Even though Tillis has already given his support of Trump, he’s not expected to go to the RNC because he’s “just not a conventiongoer, quite honestly.”

“Back in the state, we have races to run. We’ll be represented. There’s other competing priorities that week that I have to sort out before I make that decision,” he said to The Hill.

Both Senator Collins and Senator Cassidy voted against Trump in his second impeachment trial which took place after the January 6, 2021 Capitol Riots.

They haven’t made a final decision about their attendance at the RNC yet, but it wouldn’t be a major surprise if they couldn’t attend based on their past feelings towards Donald Trump.

The Republican Party needs all hands on deck if they want to defeat Joe Biden in this year’s presidential election.

The last thing they need is for the party to become divided and therefore weaken, allowing for President Biden to swoop in and win reelection.
