A Republican Senator who is now a gubernatorial candidate in his state has publicly endorsed Trump for president.
In an interview, Indiana Republican gubernatorial candidate Senator Mike Braun endorsed Donald Trump for president in 2024.
Braun said he personally witnessed how the DC swamp works against Hoosiers and works hard to limit our success. With the public’s help, they defeated the status quo in the 2018 Indiana Senate campaign and challenged the Washington swamp with businessman and political outsider Donald Trump. They shook up the complacent, self-serving Washington elites by installing Constitutional conservatives on the Supreme Court, who have safeguarded the unborn and the Second Amendment.
According to Braun, Donald Trump is the only candidate who can get us back to the “America First” policies that brought unprecedented success and safety to the country. And with that, he threw his support behind Donald Trump for president.
Braun was a vocal supporter of the former president during his first impeachment trial and was a loyal supporter of Trump during his first term in office.
Reports show that when Republican Mike Braun ran against Democrat incumbent Joe Donnelly for Indiana’s Senate seat in 2018, he had significant support from President Trump. He drew thousands of supporters to his rallies for Braum.
The statements by Braun come after a prominent Republican predicted that Donald Trump would win the Republican nominee for president.
On Sunday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy projected that former president Trump would prevail in the ’24 Republican presidential primary, saying he was ahead in the polls. McCarthy also said that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was not on the same level as Trump.
In an interview with Maria Bartiromo of Fox News, McCarthy stated that he believed Donald Trump would be the nominee. Moreover, President Trump is in a far better position now than he was in 2016 and 2020. Due to the measures Trump implemented as president to strengthen America’s economy and put the country’s interests first.
McCarthy then said he served in Congress with Ron DeSantis and isn’t on par with President Trump in any way. And without President Trump’s support, DeSantis would not have been elected governor of Florida.
