President Trump picked up another endorsement today from Senator Mike Lee from Utah.
Sen. Lee hasn’t always supported President Trump, but he recognizes the need to support President Trump or risk another four years of Biden.
See the conversation here:
I just endorsed Donald Trump.
Whether you like Trump or not, Americans face a binary choice.
Biden refuses to enforce our border, prosecutes his opponents, & embraces policies that make life unaffordable for hardworking Americans.
I’ll take the mean tweets.
I choose Trump. https://t.co/hirfTzUqpH

Chris Christie believes President Trump will win the primary if he wins New Hampshire.
Read more on that from the Hill:
Christie, speaking at a town hall event in the Granite State, added that the primary in South Carolina — the home stage of rival candidate Nikki Haley — in February will not be enough to stop Trump if he gets a victory in New Hampshire.
“If he wins here, don’t expect South Carolina to save us; it’s not going to happen,” the former New Jersey governor told the crowd Tuesday. “So you all are the ones who are going to make the call here.”
Polling has recently shown a closer race for the state, which will host the first-in-the-nation primary on Jan. 23. Trump is still in the lead, but Haley has appeared to be gaining on him in recent weeks.
Trump currently leads with 41.5 percent support in The Hill/Decision Desk HQ’s polling average of the state. Haley, the former South Carolina governor, places second with just more than 30 percent, followed by Christie with 11.5 percent.
Christie has received some pressure to drop out of the race from Republicans arguing he does not have a path to the nomination and is only dividing the non-Trump vote, hurting candidates with a better chance at the nomination, like Haley.
But he has largely rejected those calls, saying those calling on him to drop out are “crazy” to think he would do so.

“I wholeheartedly endorse Donald J. Trump in his bid for the presidency in 2024.”
