All six members of the Michigan Republican House delegation are endorsing President Trump for the 2024 presidential election, per The Hill.
Michigan Reps. Jack Bergman, Bill Huizenga, John James, Lisa McClain, John Moolenarr, and Tim Walberg, were all endorsed by President Trump during the 2022 midterms and now they are standing by him.
The news was announced in a statement by President Trump on his website, noting, “In 2016, President Trump became the first Republican in 28 years to win Michigan in a Presidential Election, and he looks forward to working with this team to win Michigan’s 15 Electoral Votes next November.”
According to the statement, the Michigan representatives backing him collectively responded, “We’re proud to announce our full endorsement of President Donald J. Trump.”
They added, “Under his leadership, Michigan received increased funding to protect our Great Lakes and a new lock at the Soo Locks, improving one of our most important infrastructure projects in North America. President Trump will rebuild a great American economy, unleash domestic energy, secure our border, and make America safe again.”
Senior advisor to President Trump Jason Miller posted the news to Twitter stating, “Trump lands endorsements from all six GOP reps in MI.”
Rep. John James is quoted in the statement as noting, “President Biden has wrecked our economy, let our position as the sole world power slip, and opened our borders. Biden’s policies have been particularly detrimental to Michigan’s middle-class.
He added, “Under President Trump on the other hand, inflation was at 2%, the American family was strengthened through the child tax credit and other pro-family policies, and our communities were more secure. In 2024, we need to give hope to Americans who feel like their government is failing them.”
