As the 2022 midterms get further in the rear view and candidates gear up for the 2024 Presidential race, President Trump is already securing key endorsements from both politicians and major conservative media personalities.
Trump has already gained the support of Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-Al.) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-Sc.).
The latter will be a particularly important endorsement as South Carolina is an early primary state that will set the tone for the race.
Other major candidates have not declared, though former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley teased an announcement last week while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has amassed an impressive war chest from his 2022 race if he chooses to run.
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Trump has two other big endorsements in the pipeline from freshman Senators Eric Schmitt (R-Mo.) and Senator J.D Vance (R-Oh.).

Trump and DeSantis continue to lead the 2024 pack of candidates, with Trump having the edge in a majority of polls while DeSantis continues to gain support.

Freshmen Senators J.D. Vance of Ohio and Eric Schmitt of Missouri are gearing up to throw their weight behind Former President Trump’s 2024 campaign, according to reporting by Politico.
Although the former president has enjoyed significant support from the Republicans in the House of Representatives, he has struggled to gain significant support from those in the Senate.
According to Politico, Vance has told those in his circle that he sees himself endorsing the former president in the upcoming 2024 GOP Primary.
Trump notably endorsed Vance during the 2022 Ohio GOP Senate primary and is largely credited with helping the best-selling author and former venture capitalist secure the nomination. Vance thanked Trump after winning the May 3 primary but notably did not mention the former president in his general election victory speech.
Schmitt said in interview Monday that he would support the former President, according to Politico.
“He’s very popular in Missouri. He’s been somebody that’s gotten the support of Missourians by big margins a couple times.” Schmitt said, per Politico.
