Politico reporter Burgess Everett asked Lummis if she would endorse Trump for office again ahead of his expected announcement tomorrow that he will run for president in 2024.
“I don’t think that’s the right question. The question is: who is the current leader of the Republican Party? Oh, I know who it is: Ron DeSantis,” Lummis answered. “Ron DeSantis is the leader of the Republican Party, whether he wants to be or not.”
Another reporter quoted Lummis as saying, “In my opinion, the current leader of the Republican Party is Ron DeSantis.”
