There was once a lot of talk of splitting up the party…
Still, Trump himself said that it would be a fools errand to split the party and all the votes into separate factions.
It remains to be seen if he will carry this view forward into 2024, but Lindsey Graham is now saying that Trump can absolutely have the nomination if he wants it.
Let’s take a look:
Hegseth: You mentioned Trump, is he the nominees in 2024?
Graham: Yeah, if he wants it… it’s his nomination if he wants it. The Republican base appreciated him, we don’t appreciate all the things he does sometimes but from a policy point of view… pic.twitter.com/Ie4lgLk1kl

Fox News quotes Graham:
“Unless there’s something coming out of left field I don’t see coming, it’s his nomination if he wants it,” Graham told guest host Pete Hegseth.
“The Republican base appreciated him. We don’t appreciate all the things he does sometimes. But from a policy point of view, he was the most successful president from a conservative’s point of view since Ronald Reagan.”

Washington Examiner adds:
Trump needs to remind voters of his successes in office, the South Carolina Republican said, and members of the GOP can expect a “blowout year” during the 2022 midterm elections if they deliver a Trump-led “America first” message, he said.
