    Will Kristi Noem Run for President 2024? Gov Gives Shocking Response to Trump’s Announcement

    Published on

    In her most recent electoral campaign, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem had the unequivocal support of former President Donald Trump.

    Whether Noem will repay the kindness is up in the air.

    Noem joined the chorus of formerly ardent Trump supporters who don’t appear overly thrilled with The Donald’s comeback to the presidential race. Some of them, like Noem, might be holding back because they have presidential aspirations.

    According to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, Trump stated in a little video that “Kristi Noem has been a fantastic governor for the state of South Dakota,” on Nov. 7.

    Noem did, in fact, secure re-election with a margin of victory close to 27 points. It’s unclear whether Trump still thinks she’s improved since then, especially in light of her statements to The New York Times on Tuesday, the day after Trump declared his intention to run for office again in 2024.

    Noem told The Times that she did not believe Trump represented the “best chance” for the Republican Party to retake the White House in 2024. “If we narrow our focus there, then we’re not talking to every single American,” she added.

    “Our job is not just to talk to people who love Trump or hate Trump,” she continued. “Our job is to talk to every single American.”

    The company she was with when she made the statement may have irritated the former president more than the speech itself. Corey Lewandowski, one of Trump’s numerous former campaign managers who now serves as Noem’s political advisor, was seated at the table with her at the time.

    Mike Pompeo, another former Trump supporter who served as secretary of state under Trump and is running for president, was likewise visibly unprepared to back his former leader.

    He wrote on Twitter on Wednesday, “We need more seriousness, less noise, and leaders who are looking forward, not staring in the rearview mirror claiming victimhood.”

    They weren’t the only ones who weren’t enthusiastic about the former president’s official return to politics.

    “Three billionaire donors have moved on and others are actively weighing their options. A number of former allies are staying on the sidelines. A long list of potential rivals — from popular governors to members of Congress — are seriously assessing their chances for 2024,” according to The Times. “Even his own daughter has declined to get involved.”

    What Trump’s 2024 chances look like are anybody’s guess this early in the game. Some insiders have noted that many grass-roots voters who supported Trump in 2016 and 2020 will likely do the same in 2024.

    The RealClearPolitics average of polls has Trump in the lead for the Republican nomination by a solid 25 points. What that means this far out is debatable, although it should probably be noted that all three polls in the average were conducted by organizations that definitely don’t want to see the GOP win the White House in the next election — and what that means is debatable, too.

    On the other hand, Trump’s support doesn’t seem to have grown since those elections, either. CONTINUE READING…
