The Republican Party is somewhat divided over the 2024 Election. Many voters are all-in for another Trump administration. But top party leaders across the country are conflicted. Some have waited to see if one of the other candidates could beat Trump’s dominating lead.
But as primary voting begins, Trump continues to be the clear frontrunner. And now, a major D.C. leader is getting on the Trump train.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) endorsed former President Donald Trump on Sunday for the presidency on the eve of the Iowa Caucuses, reportedly marking the 23rd senator to endorse the 45th president.
Republican senator from Florida, Marco Rubio, endorsed Donald Trump for president. He joins fellow Sen. Rick Scott and twenty-two other senators who are backing the former president. Rubio said that Trump helped pass policies he had “worked on for years,” including expanding the Child Tax Credit and sanctions on Cuba.
According to polls, Trump has a strong lead in Florida, even over the state’s governor, Ron DeSantis. Florida is a key state in the upcoming election and signs point to it going for the Republican candidate.
But he wasn’t the only leader backing Trump recently. Even a former rival is getting behind Trump’s 2024 campaign.
