The GOP has their sights on winning next year’s presidential election. But they’re going to have to try and do it after this shakeup.
And the Republican Party is about to be hit with major 2024 election news.
Former President Donald Trump has been raking in endorsements left and right as a Republican candidate for president in 2024.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, are both Republican candidates who are looking to secure endorsements to help boost themselves in the polls to catch the former President who is sitting in first place currently.
And now, Haley and DeSantis might have the support of a Republican governor come their way in the near future.
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (R) is planning to make his endorsement of a GOP presidential candidate “in the next few weeks,” according to comments he made during an interview with CBS News.
“We’re all friends. We’re all tight. I think they would all make great presidents,” Sununu said of some of the candidates left in the field.
“I really do. I’ll narrow it down and get behind one in the next few weeks.”
Both Haley and DeSantis have been seen campaigning with the New Hampshire Governor recently, and many believe his choice for an endorsement will be between one of them.
“I think Nikki Haley has done very well. I think Ron DeSantis has really held his own, nationally in the second place position,” Sununu explained.
“Some candidates have kind of surged and faded a little bit. Some that were on the stage aren’t on the stage.”
Haley has started to become impatient with Sununu taking his time however, and even asked him in front of a crowd to make his decision during an event in New Hampshire last week.
“Getting closer every day. Getting closer ever day,” the governor of the Granite State said.
Gov. Sununu also believes that despite Trump’s large lead in the primary polls, he’s still able to be beaten by another Republican candidate.
“I think I’ll work hard to kinda spend a little more time with some of the other candidates and figure something out, you know, shortly after Thanksgiving,” Sununu said.
The governor has been clear about his disdain for Donald Trump. He’s been diligent in trying to find and support the right candidate to beat him in the primary.
And he also knows how important his state is in the primary elections, since it’s the first Republican primary to take place.
“Now in Iowa and New Hampshire, the voters are very smart. They’re very independent-minded, they’ll consider your endorsement, but at the end of the day they’re gonna make their own decision because we meet the candidates, we engage with them, we don’t have party bosses telling us what to think, and do,” said Sununu of a possible endorsement.
When Chris Sununu makes his decision in the upcoming weeks, a positive shift in momentum could very well become available to the candidate he chooses.
