Former President Donald Trump, and if he can support the 2020 presidential election, he will have to run for president in 2024.
LBL Digital reached out to each of these 10 Republicans, asking them if they wanted, or were seeking Trump’s approval, and if they should, he should be backed by another presidential term in the 2024 election.
Only one responded with a statement from his office about what appeared to be a clear intent to avoid Trump.
“Re\next. Bacon is not seeking President Trump’s endorsement nor is he looking forward this time, but focus on 2022 and reclaiming the House of Control,” a statement from the office of Representative Don Bacon, R-Nep. , Read.

The nine Republicans did not respond. David Schweikert, R-Ariz., Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., Rep. Mike Garcia, R-Calif., Rep. Young Kim, R-Calif., Rep. Michelle Steel, R-California, Rep. Peter Meijer, R-Mich., Rep. Yvette Herrell, R-P. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Penn.
Major and Valadao were the two Republicans who voted to impeach Trump after the storming of the US Capitol on January 6 last year.
LBL Digital also reached out to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to comment on the lack of responses from a group of Republicans. Party spokesman Chris Taylor responded by saying the party’s “MAGA agenda”.
Republicans like Don Bacon will try to escape their extremist MAGA party agenda like chickens. They know all too well their extremist agenda that puts our children and the elderly in harm’s way, erodes the power of our voting, and their many long-running schemes take away women’s rights and make decisions about her body in non-starter suburban neighborhoods. Taylor said.
With Biden’s approval rating, this year’s midterm elections, and Biden’s rating, which represents swing counties, appear to be overly familiar with their race. Once again it becomes a replay for 2020.

Republicans currently hold 210 of the 218 required for a majority. The Democrats currently hold 220.
Trump has already racked up a raft of endorsements in primary races across the country, but with mixed results. Although his certified candidates maintained a high winning percentage, many of them ran non-competitive or non-competitive races.
A number of candidates lost back-to-back high-profile races in South Carolina and Georgia, with the latter losing major wins in May’s primary and Tuesday’s runoff.
Trump has seen success with other high-profile endorsements, including Dr. Mehmet Oz, the Republican candidate for the Pennsylvania Senate, and Katie Brett, the Republican candidate for the Alabama Senate.
Other Republicans have also sought Trump’s endorsement, including Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is running for re-election this year. DeSantis is considered a potential challenger to Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, but he has not yet said he will run.
