List of prominent Georgians who endorsed Trump’s comeback bid so far

Georgia – Ex-President Donald Trump just gained significant support in Georgia. Tyler Harper, the Agriculture Commissioner, and about half of the Georgia Senate’s Republican members are now backing Trump’s attempt to return to office. This big news came right before Trump competes with ex-South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in the New Hampshire primary.

As Trump remains the favorite GOP presidential candidate, growing number of prominent Georgians expressed their endorsement

Trump leads the Republican race; Haley remains only challenger

Numerous polls recently showed that Trump would most probably be the Republican nominee as everyone, including the once-popular Ron DeSantis, decided to suspend their bids except for Nikki Haley, who is expected to challenge Trump at least for a while. Not just in Georgia, but former U.S. President Donald Trump secured some very important endorsements in numerous states, including from DeSantis, who immediately showed support after announcing his campaign suspension.

Most top Republicans in Georgia were hesitant to support anyone for president, especially since Trump had issues with Governor Brian Kemp and other Republican leaders. But this is changing as Georgia’s primary on March 12 gets closer. Labor Commissioner Bruce Thompson recently backed Trump. Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones, an early Trump supporter in Georgia, is convincing other lawmakers to support Trump too.Top of Form
