Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a senior Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on former President Donald Trump to run again in 2024 at the Michigan Republican Leadership Conference yesterday.
The New York Post reported earlier that Graham, who has been a staunch ally of Trump in the Senate, came under heavy fire last week for a new book alleging that he did not believe Trump’s allegations of election fraud late last year.
Graham did not respond to Trump’s rebuke, saying only that he and Trump had found common ground and praised Trump for restoring order to the southern border, cutting taxes, appointing a group of conservative judges and promoting the rapid development of the covid-19 virus vaccine.
According to a new survey by the Rasmussen Report, 48 percent of U.S. citizens likely to vote think Trump’s re-election to 2024 is a good thing, while 44 percent disagree.
Whether it’s Biden for re-election or He Jinli to replace him, Trump is likely to outperform them by double digits. Trump vs. Biden is 51% to 41%. Trump vs. He Jinli is 52% to 39%.
