Republican Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota has reservations about former President Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential bid.
Noem stated that Trump is probably not the GOP’s “best chance” at ensuring a win.
“Noem, who easily won reelection with 62% of the vote against Democratic challenger Jamie Smith, said choosing Trump as the nominee would limit the Republican Party’s reach,” reported Washington Examiner.
Trump Not GOP’s Best Chance In 2024
“If we narrow our focus there, then we’re not talking to every single American,” Noem said while in Florida for a meeting of the Republican Governor’s Association.
“Our job is not just to talk to people who love Trump or hate Trump. Our job is to talk to every single American,” Noem added.
“This deviates from previous statements that she has made prior to the midterm elections and Trump’s bid, emphasizing that if Trump were to run again, she would support him,” reports Washington Examiner. “She also has caused speculation surrounding her potentially being selected as Trump’s running mate, which she said would shock her if it were true.”
“Trump has been a vocal supporter of Noem, even providing an 85-second clip for her campaign rally the day before Election Day, per the Des Moines Register,” reported Washington Examiner.
“Kristi Noem has been a fantastic governor for the state of South Dakota,” Trump previously said. “Kristi Noem is one of the best governors in the country. We have to reelect her by a big margin. She’ll only get better.”
Noem pushed back on the way the New York Times framed her comments about Trump. You can read about that here.
