Just hours after President Donald Trump launched his 2024 presidential campaign, many Republicans quickly endorsed his third bid for the White House.
On Twitter, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton praised Trump’s “efforts to secure our borders, project strength across the globe, expand economic opportunity, & protect our freedoms put our nation back on track,” and endorsed his campaign to “once again put America First & heal our nation.”
Texas Reps. Troy Nehls and Ronny Jackson, and Congressman-elect Wesley Hunt shared their endorsements of the 45th president on their Twitter accounts, according to Newsweek.
Hunt wrote, “Congratulations to President Trump on his announcement to become the 47th President of the United States. Our country is in a rapid decline thanks to Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. It’s time to save America.”
“President Trump SAVED AMERICA once, and he’s going to do it again! I think EVERYONE knows where I stand,” Jackson tweeted. “I’ve had 45’s back since DAY ONE, but just in case, I’m PROUD to OFFICIALLY ENDORSE President Trump in 2024! TRUMP 2024!! #Trump2024.”
Nehls also tweeted, “My friend Donald J. Trump has my complete and total endorsement for president in 2024. He is the leader of the Republican Party, and we will make America great again!”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., made a special announcement endorsing President Trump just hours before supporters gathered at Trump’s residence in Palm Beach, Florida, to hear Trump announce his 2024 bid.
“And also speaking of 2024, we know that President Trump has a special announcement tonight and I’ll go ahead and say right now, President Trump has my full endorsement and my support as our Republican nominee in 2024,” Greene told reporters.
Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake also announced her support for Trump’s presidential bid, following Trump’s Tuesday night announcement: “President Trump announces his ’24 Presidential run. He has my complete and total endorsement!”
Following Trump’s 2024 announcement, Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., wrote on Twitter how “proud” he was to give his endorsement to President Trump after he “was there for America when we most needed him.”
“And we need him again more than ever. We are blessed to have him,” Gosar wrote on Twitter.
Stefanik’s team on Friday told RSBN, “I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President in 2024. I fully support him running again.” Stefanik added that “Republican voters determine who is the leader of the Republican Party and it’s very clear President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party.”
The congresswoman continued, praising Trump’s extraordinary leadership as president at a time when “America was strong at home and abroad, our economy was red hot, our border was secure, our neighborhoods were safe, our law enforcement was respected, and our enemies feared us.”
