After a 28-year gap, Donald Trump achieved a significant milestone in 2016 by becoming the first Republican presidential candidate to win Michigan, securing 15 electoral votes. Looking ahead, Michigan is scheduled to hold its nominating contests on February 27, 2024, preceding Super Tuesday, which positions it as one of the earliest states on the GOP presidential primary calendar.
According to a senior campaign aide who spoke to Fox News Digital, former President Trump has dedicated years to cultivating connections with members of Congress, including those in the Michigan delegation. In 2022, Trump endorsed all six of the Michigan lawmakers mentioned. Additionally, Trump showed his support for James during his campaigns for the U.S. Senate in both 2018 and 2020. The campaign aide further highlighted that Trump and James have jointly campaigned across Michigan for the past six years.
“This monumental clean sweep in Michigan and other key endorsements across the country signify Republicans are rallying behind President Trump because they know he is the only person to stop Joe Biden and his destructive policies that have killed the economy and made Americans less safe,” a representative speaking on behalf of Donald Trump informed Fox News Digital.
