Republican Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy has endorsed former President Donald Trump for the 2024 nomination, becoming the third GOP governor to back him.
News of Dunleavy’s endorsement came from Politico, and it will give the former president crucial support in a state that will “hold its nominating contest on the all-important ‘Super Tuesday’ primary date”:
The endorsement comes as Trump expands his broad lead in support from Republican governors and federal lawmakers over his rivals in the GOP presidential primary. With Dunleavy’s backing, Trump has earned the support of three of the five Republican governors who have endorsed in the race. Trump has also received the support of over 80 members of Congress, more than 16 times the amount of his nearest rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The former president has been aggressively courting the support of prospective endorsees; he recently spoke by phone with Dunleavy, whose state is expected to hold its primary on March 5, 2024, the same day that over a dozen states are expected to hold their nominating contests.
The former president previously endorsed Dunleavy three times in his bid for governor, including in 2022 when he faced a recall attempt. The Trump campaign will reportedly release a video on Tuesday thanking the governor for the endorsement. (Read more from “Alaska Governor Endorses Trump for President” HERE)
