Another country has been heard from regarding the 2024 presidential election.
Senator Katie Britt (R-AL) has formally announced that she will be supporting Donald Trump in the 2024 primary race and, if he wins, the general election.
Britt skillfully made the announcement just prior to the fourth Republican debate to try to steal some thunder from the other candidates.
Say what you want about Trump, but he has worked the news cycle of these debates masterfully.
Trump has never allowed the debates to enjoy more than 24 hours in the news cycle without having something change the cycle to focus everything back on him.
Britt made her endorsement only hours before the debate started via an op-ed in the Yellowhammer News.
Britt touted all of the big talking points for Trump, such as securing the border, slashing regulations, and helping farmers across the country.
She also touted his record against our adversaries as well as stressing our energy independence under Trump.
She concluded, “One candidate has already proven he’s more than up for the job – because he’s done the job successfully. There is one candidate I know will secure the border — because he’s done it. There is one candidate I know will achieve peace through strength — because he’s done it.
“And that’s why President Donald Trump has my endorsement to be our 47th President.”
For some reason, Trump has been applying significant pressure to Britt to endorse him in this race, having been tugging on her for months to pull the trigger on the endorsement.
Britt defended her position by saying that she had “pledged neutrality in the GOP presidential primary as a condition of joining the RNC’s Republican Party Advisory Council,” but I guess that all went out the window.
It does not bother me one bit that she endorsed Trump, but it is infuriating that she has proved that her word means nothing and she caved to this pressure.
For once, I would like a politician to stand by their word and do what they actually say.
Having said that, this puts one more big endorsement from a key state in Trump’s back pocket as he looks to end the primary race early.
And by the looks of it right now, come Super Tuesday, barring some monumental upsets, this race will be over.
