Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee announced on Monday that she is endorsing Donald Trump for president. She joins a growing list of elected officials who are supporting the former president, including Rep. Byron Donalds from Florida and Senate Judiciary Ranking Member Lindsey Graham from South Carolina.
Sen. Blackburn praised Trump’s record on the economy, national security, and military, stating that under his leadership, the country experienced low gas prices, a booming economy, and a strong military. She expressed pride in endorsing him for president and said she can’t wait for him to be back in the White House.
Trump is currently the frontrunner for the Republican nomination, and polls show him ahead of potential challengers such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
However, a recent poll from Quinnipiac University indicates that a majority of Americans believe Trump should be disqualified from running for president due to ongoing criminal investigations.
Despite the legal challenges, Trump’s fundraising has skyrocketed, with his campaign reporting nearly $18.8 million in donations for the January-March quarter of 2023.
