President Trump is continuing to pull in endorsements for his reelection bid, scoring widespread support across the nation as the primary election season is a mere weeks away.

Throughout 2023, he has swiftly rocketed to the top position in GOP primary polling and beyond, showing that he has the strength to only win the Republican nomination, but to win the general election next year. A new poll from Harvard/Harris showed on Monday that Trump was leading Biden by a whopping seven points nationwide (including undecided voters) in a prospective 2024 general election.

Amid Trump’s winning position, more lawmakers and political figures are lending their endorsement to the 45th president, eager to show their support for the leader of the America First movement.

Just this week, Trump netted three more big endorsements, starting with Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas. Gov. Abbott formally endorsed Trump in the Lone Star State at a Thanksgiving event with Lone Star service members in Edinburg.

“We need DONALD J. TRUMP back as our president of the United States of America,” he told the crowd, lauding Trump for his common sense border policies, his devotion to law and order, and his skill in maintaining world peace.

Trump also garnered an endorsement from Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., on Monday. In a statement to Fox News, Sen. Marshall slammed Biden for the ongoing illegal immigration crisis, as well as his attack on American agriculture.

He told the outlet, “Our farmers and ranchers feed the world, and Kansans deserve a President who understands that, and a leader who values the energy Americans produce. That is why I’m endorsing President Donald Trump. While others may try to imitate him, only President Trump will put our country back on track on day one.”

Moreover, Republican Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita added his voice to the chorus of recent endorsements for President Trump. AG Rokita wrote on X on Monday, “Even while being wrongfully harassed by a weaponized justice system for his entire presidency, our economy, respect on the world stage, and the promise of an even better America for our children and grandchildren were as high under Trump’s leadership as they were during Reagan.”

In early November, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R) endorsed President Trump at a packed MAGA rally in Hialeah, Florida, declaring, “I am so proud to endorse my former boss, my friend, and everybody’s favorite president – Donald J. Trump!”

Likewise, recent presidential candidate dropouts Larry Elder (radio personality) and Perry Johnson (businessman) voiced their support for President Trump. Johnson called him “the only candidate” who could beat Joe Biden and “save this country.”

Elder wrote on X, “He has my full support to Make America Great Again, end the epidemic of fatherless homes, reign in spending, and restore law & order.”

Trump has also picked up dozens of endorsements from state lawmakers in places like New Hampshire, West Virginia, and South Carolina. According to The Hill, Trump had racked up around 76 House Republican endorsements in September and 12 GOP senatorial endorsements – and that number has only grown over the past few months.
