Donald Trump is running for re-election.
But not everyone in the GOP is happy about that fact.
Donald Trump saw two Republicans say the unthinkable and now everyone is scrambling.
For six years Donald Trump owned unquestioned dominance over the Republican Party.
However, in the wake of the midterm election wipeout where Trump’s endorsed candidates for Senate and governor came up short, other Republicans sense weakness.
Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton – who infuriated conservatives by previously supporting the type of illegal government spying the Deep State deployed against Trump in the Russia collusion hoax – told CBS’s Margaret Brennan that the GOP did not have one single leader when asked about supporting Trump’s re-election bid.
“But we also have important other leaders as well, like some of those victors I just mentioned earlier, like Brian Kemp in Georgia, Ron DeSantis in Florida. Last year, you had Glenn Youngkin have a great victory in a bluish democratic state like Virginia. I hope to remain a leader in the United States Senate as well, in addition to people like some of those I just mentioned who were reelected, like Tim Scott. So, when you’re in opposition, you don’t have a single leader. That won’t be the case until we’re through the ’24 – ‘24 nominating season, and we have – we have a new nominee,” Cotton stated.
New Hampshire RINO Governor Chris Sununu – who infuriated conservatives by supporting the left’s abortion-on-demand regime – told CNN that he would not support Trump running in 2024 and would instead look towards other candidates in the field.
“Look, not really, because I think there’s going to be a lot of great candidates out there. I’m excited to see who runs for president on both sides. I don’t think Joe Biden is running. It’s a good thing. New ideas are going to be out there—the referee of the first in the nation primary here in New Hampshire lot of responsibility. We have a lot of fun with it to be sure we hold them to a whole different standard to the rest of the country. We got to look you in the eye. Grassroots politics, connection with the individual really does matter in place like New Hampshire,” Sununu stated.
The GOP establishment searched around for six years for an excuse to exile Trump and shove his supporters to the back of the line in the Republican Party coalition.
And Republican elites smell blood in the water after the disappointing results in the midterm elections.
The big question hovering over the party is, will the rank and file agree that now is the moment to separate from Trump and pick new party leadership?
