Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has endorsed Donald Trump for president in the 2024 election.

“We need President Trump back in the White House to get our country back on track and correct President Biden’s failures,” Grassley told the Daily Caller.

“High costs at the grocery store are hurting Iowa families and Biden’s open border policies are jeopardizing the safety of America’s families. There’s no question who I’ll be supporting in November: Donald J. Trump,” he continued.

Daily Caller reports:

Grassley, who is the longest-serving senator, was reelected to his eighth term in 2022 and was endorsed by Trump.

Before the Iowa caucus, Grassley held off on making an endorsement, saying: “I do not plan on endorsing, and I believe that Joni Ernst has the same view I have. And the reason we haven’t endorsed anybody is because when there were 13 candidates, we wanted everybody to come to Iowa and keep Iowa first in the nation.”

Grassley has been serving in the Senate since 1981.

Grassley, 90, is the oldest U.S. senator.

Although most Republican senators have endorsed Trump for president, there remain a few holdouts.

Wikipedia lists the following Republican senators who oppose Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign.

  • Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
  • Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
  • Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)
  • Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD)
  • Sen. Todd Young (R-IN)

From The Hill:

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Wednesday he would “absolutely not” vote for former President Trump over President Biden in November, pointing to Trump’s foreign policy views and his character.

“No. No, no, absolutely not,” Romney told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins on “The Source” when asked whether he would support Trump over Biden.

Wikipedia noted that Collins and Murkowski endorsed Nikki Haley.

The Hill reported:

Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), in Sunday interviews, would not say whether they would endorse former President Trump’s bid for the White House.

Rounds, in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” avoided explicitly endorsing former President Trump but did commit to supporting the eventual nominee – who, at this point, is presumed to be Trump.

From WEVV:

U.S. Senator Todd Young says he will not support former President Donald Trump in his bid for the Republican Presidential nomination.

Young spoke about Trump’s take on the war in Ukraine, where Trump says Putin is not a war criminal and will not take sides as the war wages on.

Instead, Young says what Hoosiers decide to do is their choice.

Young says, he does not know who he will support for the party’s nomination.
