Former president Donald Trump set off a scramble Monday in the Republican Party after he threatened to upend the midterm elections by announcing his 2024 presidential bid on the eve of voting.
Trump told people close to him Monday that he might announce his candidacy at a rally scheduled for Monday night in Ohio, according to three people familiar with the discussions who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe confidential conversations, prompting a chain of phone calls from party leaders who have tried for months to keep him from announcing until after the midterms. Some of his advisers began communicating to others Monday that efforts needed to be made to talk him out of announcing, two of these people said, while other advisers were egging him on to jump in.
If the Republicans are going to have a bad day on Tuesday, who will be holding the bag, hmmm? And if they have a good day, he’ll take the credit. He always does.
I honestly don’t know how/if this would drive turn-out, but given this narcissist’s usual M.O., well, we might find out.
