Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, R-Ark., has endorsed President Donald Trump this week and will make a formal public endorsement during a signature MAGA rally in Hialeah, Florida, multiple outlets have reported.
Sanders, who formerly worked for Trump as the White House Press Secretary and received his endorsement upon her bid for the Arkansas governorship in 2022, is the daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Politico described Sanders’ upcoming endorsement of Trump as “debate counterprogramming,” because the Hialeah rally is slated to take place during the same time that GOP debaters will be taking the stage in Miami at the third Republican event.
President Trump has famously declined to attend any of the GOP debates this election cycle, and his GOP primary polling numbers seem to prove that it has been a winning strategy.
Nationwide, the latest data from Morning Consult’s 2024 Republican Primary Tracker shows that Trump holds 63 percent of GOP primary voters’ support, giving him a whopping 48-point lead over runner-up Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
Via MAGA Inc., Sanders offered a full endorsement preceding the rally in Hialeah:
“It’s not a question between right versus left anymore. It’s normal versus crazy, and President Biden and the left are doubling down on crazy. The time has come to return to the normal policies of the Trump era which created a safer, stronger, and more prosperous America, and that’s why I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for President.”
Ahead of Trump’s rally in Hialeah, Trump is strongly leading the field of Republican presidential candidates in the Sunshine State, earning an impressive 60 percent of Floridian’s primary support, according to a new poll from the University of North Florida’s Public Opinion Research Lab.
