Ahead of his CPAC speech in Dallas, Fox News Digital은 트럼프에게 자신의 민주당 상대인 Stacey Abrams에 대한 재선 입찰에서 Kemp를 지지할 것인지 물었습니다..
“잘, we’ll be looking at everything,” Trump told Fox News Digital on Saturday.
Trump railed against Kemp for certifying President Biden’s victory in the Peach State following the 2020 presidential election as he repeatedly alleged voter fraud led to his defeat.
Kemp previously defeated Trump-backed David Perdue, earning a whopping 73.7% of the vote in a heated GOP primary in May.
The incumbent will be competing in a highly anticipated rematch against Stacey Abrams, who famously never formally conceded her 2018 패배.
Several of Trump’s endorsed candidates prevailed in competitive GOP gubernatorial primaries across the country including Kari Lake in Arizona, Tudor Dixon in Michigan and Dan Cox in Maryland.
Trump’s influence over the Republican Party remains strong. The CPAC straw poll showed Trump having 69% support among attendees in a hypothetical GOP primary in 2024.
플로리다 정부. 론 데 산티스, who is seeking re-election in November, placed second with 24%. 텍사스 상원 의원. Ted Cruz earned 2% support among CPAC goers. All other potential candidates earned 1% 이하.
In a hypothetical primary without the former president, DeSantis topped the straw poll with 65%. Placing second is Trump’s son, 도널드 트럼프 주니어, 와 8% backing, followed by Cruz with 6% and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with 5%. No one else topped 2% on the second ballot question.
The former president’s strong performance on the unscientific survey comes as no surprise. CPAC, long the largest and most influential gathering of conservative leaders and activists, has become a Trumpfest since his 2016 presidential election victory.
