Donald Trump continues to build momentum in the GOP Presidential race.
Trump’s rivals are beginning to acknowledge the inevitable.
And this Republican just dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Donald Trump.
Conservative commentator Larry Elder became the latest GOP Presidential longshot to drop out of the race after failing to qualify for any of the first three Republican Party debates.
After dropping out of the race, Elder endorsed Trump.
“Now that I am exiting the race, I am proud to announce my endorsement of Donald Trump for President of the United States. His leadership has been instrumental in advancing conservative, America-first principles and policies that have benefited our great nation. We must unite behind Donald Trump to beat Joe Biden and fight back against Biden’s unprecedented election interference and the left’s destruction of America,” a statement from Elder read.
Elder dropping out and endorsing Trump came three days after longshot GOP Presidential hopeful and Michigan businessman Perry Johnson quit the race and endorsed Trump.
Trump thanked Johnson for his endorsement in a post on Truth Social.
“Perry Johnson is a brilliant Businessman who has enjoyed great success. Above all, he loves our Country! After a valiant effort, he is now leaving the Race for President to do other things, which I have no doubt will be very successful. It is a great honor for me to have received his Full Endorsement. I will make Perry very proud of this decision, because we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump wrote.
The Real Clear Politics polling average shows Trump leading his nearest competitor by 46.5 points nationally and by over 30 points in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Johnson and Elder are just admitting the truth about the state of play in the GOP race and jumping on the Trump bandwagon.
Some candidates, like Chris Christie and Mike Pence, are basically only in the race to run as guided missiles targeting Trump over January 6 and his desire to end the war in Ukraine.
Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis are hanging around in the vain hope that Trump’s legal issues will force him out of the race, and they will become the landing spot for the donor class and grassroots Trump supporters.
But every week this race goes on, the stronger Trump grows.
Trump’s lead in the polls keeps increasing the more Democrats deploy their weaponized justice system to persecute him ahead of the election.
Elder and Johnson don’t want to keep asking donors for money to fund a fool’s errand campaign, and they instead think it’s time for the Republican Party to unify behind who they believe is the inevitable nominee and to turn the focus towards beating Joe Biden.
