ere are three key factors former President Trump will assess in weighing a campaign to recapture the White House 2024, according to Trump political stalwart Corey Lewandowski: health, political clout, and money.

Trump “turns 75 on June 14th, so the first factor, obviously, is his health,” Lewandowski told “Just the News AM” on Wednesday.

Were Trump to be elected in 2024, he would be 78 years old (Biden’s current age) when he assumed office. Following a campaign in which Trump repeatedly questioned Joe Biden’s ability to “put two sentences together,” the former president is, according to Lewandowski, taking seriously the element of his age — including both physical and mental health.

Trump, however, is “in incredible shape and is obviously a very active individual,” said Lewandowski, a longtime fixture in the former president’s political brain trust. Those who spent the last season visiting with Trump at Mar-A-Lago report the former president looks slimmer and is maintaining a healthier lifestyle than during his time in Washington.

Next comes the question of the 2022 midterm elections, which will be a test of Trump’s residual political clout. He has made it clear that he plans to play a prominent role in the Republican effort to regain both House and Senate majorities. Specifically, in addition to making an impact in the expected batch of competitive general election races, Trump is looking at primaries in which he can help oust Republicans who voted to impeachment him. Reps. Adam Kinzinger in Illinois, Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio, Liz Cheney in Wyoming and Sen. Lisa Murkowski in Alaska top the list of targeted candidates.

Measuring the effectiveness of Trump’s efforts in the midterms will be another metric to assess ahead of a possible 2024 run. “What is our ability to win back the House and the Senate? And how much influence does he have in doing that?” said Lewandowski.

Based on the history of midterm election results combined with current polling trends, Republicans appear for the moment well-positioned to retake the House in 2022. The Senate remains a question mark, as several prominent Republicans retire at the end of this term, and several swing-state incumbents are up for reelection. The 2022 elections will shed light on how Republican voters behave in a post-Trump landscape, which will give Team Trump a better understanding of their prospects moving into 2024.

Cash is the third consideration Trump will take into account: What will the former president’s fundraising numbers look like several years from now? Make America Great Again Action, Trump’s new super PAC, of which Lewandowski is the president, holds its first fundraising event this weekend at Trump’s Bedminster golf club, where the former president recently returned after winter in South Florida. The minimum price for entry is reportedly $250,000, and Lewandowski says they’re expecting a crowd. Any super PAC funding could be used to help preferred candidates during the 2022 cycle, or placed aside for 2024.

Shortly before departing the White House, Trump also launched the Save America PAC, a leadership PAC that has raised tens of millions of dollars since December.

All three factors “have aligned very well for former President Trump right now,” Lewandowski assesses. But, he cautioned, “there’s a long election cycle … so we’ve got a lot of time before he has to make a decision.”

Congress

Trump Screws Liz Cheney As Third Primary Challenger Drops Out Of Race After Heeding Trump’s Advice

Published

on

Liz Cheney’s only chance at keeping her seat in Congress, in the face of a tough primary led by former President Donald Trump, was to split the vote.

The other candidates smelled blood nin the water and jumped into the race to primary Liz. But too many saw the doomed Liz Cheney as an easy win, and in a deep red state, knew the winner could keep that seat for years if they wanted.

So it looked good for Cheney for a while but Trump stepped in to clear the field and dropped his crucial endorsement on an old friend of Cheney’s, Harriet Hageman.

And then Trump went after the other candidates in the primary race telling them to drop out as they have no chance without his endorsement arguing that that was the best way to send Cheney packing.

To Liz’s abject horror the other candidates are listening to Trump and putting personal ambition to the side to make sure she gets fired. 

First, two big names in the Wyoming GOP dropped out of the race.

Cheyenne attorney Darin Smith and Sheridan County Republican Party Chairman Bryan Miller suspended their campaigns after Trump’s endorsement went to Hageman.

And today a third primary challenger announced they were suspending their campaign all but sealing Cheney’s doomed fate.

Wyoming state Rep. Chuck Gray, of Casper, said he is out of the race to help defeat Cheney. He said:

“Our first and most important goal is to unite to defeat Liz Cheney.

“With that in mind, I will be suspending my campaign today.

“Liz Cheney has betrayed our values. 

“And to counter Liz’s betrayal, our campaign has been focused on advancing Wyoming values,” he said.

Hageman said:

“Chuck Gray is an honorable man who has been standing for Wyoming’s Conservative values for years. 

“We can’t take back our Congressional seat unless we are united, and I am humbled by his decision to keep fighting to protect Wyoming through his work in the Legislature.

Gray was the big name in the race besides Cheney, but Darin Smith and Bryan Miller had strong support. With all three out of the race, only lesser-known candidates with no real chance remain. Sen. Anthony Bouchard (R) is the last big name in the race but he has more skeletons than one could count in his closet so he is not a real threat.

In short, Cheney will probably pull a Joe Lieberman and run as an independent but Wyoming is not like Connecticut and that will fail is she tries it.

From The Hill:

Gray had been one of the more prominent challengers, jumping into the contest early this year and crisscrossing the state.

However, Trump’s endorsement of Hageman last week marked a turning point in the GOP primary and a culmination of Republican anger with Cheney, who has infuriated the base with her vote to impeach Trump, her frequent needling of him over his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud and her role on the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“Harriet Hageman adores the Great State of Wyoming, is strong on Crime and Borders, powerfully supports the Second Amendment, loves our Military and our Vets, and will fight for Election Integrity and Energy Independence (which Biden has already given up). Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First. Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney,” Trump said last week, using an acronym for “Republican in name only.”
