Former President Donald Trump's bid for president in 2024 got support from South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem on Friday. Noem is a rising star in the Republican Party and could be Trump's choice for vice president.
Noem gave his support at a gathering in Rapid City, South Dakota, where Trump was the main speaker. The woman said that Trump was "the leader, the fighter, that our country needs."
It is my honor to support him as president of the United States of America, Noem said. "I'll do everything I can to help him win and keep this great country safe."
"One of the most successful governors in the whole nation," Trump said of Noem after she backed him.
It's a big help for Trump's campaign that Noem backed him. People in South Dakota like her. Trump won that state in 2016 and 2020.
People also think that Trump might choose Noem as his vice presidential running mate. Conservative people like her because she is young and pretty.
Trump's campaign has been having a hard time picking a vice presidential candidate that will get his supporters excited. South Dakota and other conservative states might vote for him if Noem backs him.
Trump is still ahead in the Republican race, as shown by Noem's support. Many of the party's most important people, including Noem, back him.
But Trump's campaign isn't completely smooth. Former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are two of the people running against him.
The fact that Noem backed Trump is another sign of how powerful he is becoming in the Republican Party. He is still the most well-liked person in the party, and having his support is seen as a big plus.
Looks like the Republican primary in 2024 will be very close. Trump is the favorite, but there are a lot of other candidates who want to beat him. A lot could change for the Republican Party in the future depending on how the race turns out.
Even though the election isn't until 2024, things are heating up in the Republican primary. Trump is the favorite, but there are a lot of other candidates who want to beat him. A lot could change for the Republican Party in the future depending on how the race turns out.
