Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul teased an election announcement forward of the Iowa caucuses, as he’s set to probably share his endorsement of one of many presidential candidates.

“I’ve stayed out of the Republican Presidential Primary so far – but I’ve seen enough. That’s why tomorrow morning I will have something important to say. Don’t miss it!” Mr Paul wrote on X on Thursday afternoon, sharing a video of himself urging his followers to “tune in tomorrow morning”.

Many Senate Republicans have been combating the problem of when and if to formally endorse former President Donald Trump as he appears sure to be the celebration’s presidential nominee once more.

House Republican leaders have backed Mr Trump whereas their counterparts within the higher chamber have been extra reluctant to take action. But if senators delay their endorsements for too lengthy, they might encounter the fury of the previous president, who’s famously obsessive about loyalty.

Allies of Mr Trump have mentioned that the holdouts are taking huge dangers.

“The biggest risk is that voters see them as disloyal to the party’s core message going in 2024,” Ohio Sen JD Vance instructed Politico. “That is a real risk. And that’s why I’ve encouraged a lot of folks to endorse the former president.”

The account Republicans Against Trump responded to Mr Paul on X, writing, “Let me guess: you will endorse the president who added $8 trillion to the national debt, more than any president in 4 years in history”.

Republican Conference Chair Sen John Barrasso of Wyoming endorsed Mr Trump throughout a Fox News look on Tuesday, prompting reward from the ex-president.

Mr Paul’s fellow Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, the GOP chief within the chamber, has to this point prevented Mr Trump and is more likely to proceed doing so. Following the revolt on January 6, 2021, the 2 males doesn’t work together and Mr Trump typically takes pictures at Mr McConnell.
