JUST IN: Trump Bags HUGE 2024 Endorsement

(CBrief) – Florida Republican Rep. Cory Mills has endorsed Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign.

“I think that what’s happening in New York is a very unifying event. We need to stop the infighting and come together and unify. And I think right now the person that we need to be unifying behind is President Trump,” Mills said, referring to Trump being indicted in Manhattan.

His endorsement came after Trump appeared in Manhattan last week for his arraignment in the case brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 charges regarding allegations that he falsified business records related to adult film star Stormy Daniels’ hush-money case. Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury in a case involving his purported role in hush money payments to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election, allegedly to keep Daniels quiet about an affair the two of them had in 2006.

Donald Trump Jr., the former president’s son, praised Mills on Twitter for the endorsement.

“Thanks to Cory Mills for joining other members of the FL Congressional Delegation like Matt Gaetz, Byron Donalds, and Anna Paulina in endorsing my father for President in 2024!” Proud to have this amazing group of #MAGA rockstars supporting President Trump in Florida,” he tweeted.

Mills is the fourth member of Florida’s congressional delegation to endorse Trump’s third run for the White House as rumors swirl that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis may also run.

In recent weeks, Republican Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Chip Roy of Texas endorsed DeSantis for 2024 even though the governor has not officially announced whether or not he’s running.

Trump got some more good late last week following several days’ worth of coverage involving his indictment.

The most recent national survey conducted by Fox News indicates that Trump is widening his lead in the Republican primary race.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is facing uncertainty among Democratic primary voters.

According to the survey, Republican primary voters were presented with a list of 15 declared and potential candidates for the 2024 nomination. The results show that since February, Trump has doubled his lead and is now ahead of Ron DeSantis by 30 points (54%-24%). In comparison, the former President was only 15 points ahead of DeSantis last month (43%-28%).

“No one else hits double digits. Mike Pence comes in third with 6%, Liz Cheney and Nikki Haley receive 3% each, and Greg Abbott comes in at 2%. All others receive 1% support or less, and just 3% are unsure,” the network reported.

The survey reveals that Trump gained support among nearly every major demographic, except for white men holding a college degree, where DeSantis leads in this demographic by a margin of 12 points.

Within the subset of voters who supported Trump in the 2020 general election, 60% continue to support him in the Republican primary. Meanwhile, 25% back DeSantis, and 5% support Pence.

Regarding second choice preferences, Trump primary voters would select DeSantis, and DeSantis primary voters would reciprocate and choose Trump, Fox News noted regarding the survey results.

On the Democratic side, the survey shows that 52% of primary voters would prefer a presidential nominee other than Biden, which is similar to the percentage from last month (53%). However, the number of voters who want Biden to be the nominee has risen from 37% in February to 44%, Fox News reported.

“That 7-point bump comes from the president solidifying support among women (+8), white voters (+9), voters age 45+ (+10), and White voters with no degree (+11),” said the network.

“We haven’t seen much movement at all in attitudes towards Biden this past year, but what we have has been positive,” said Anderson. “He’s holding the line and slowly bringing more people into the fold.”
