Reaction from NH Republicans to a possible Trump campaign has been mixed

Former President Donald Trump is expected to launch his 2024 presidential campaign from Mar-a-Lago in Florida Tuesday night, but the reaction from Republicans in New Hampshire has been mixed in Florida for Trump’s announcement. “I think he’s the only one who’s the right thing to say how it is,” Baldasaro said. His position requires him to remain neutral, and he said he will remain so until a candidate is selected. “We will treat everyone fairly and equally, so let the process begin,” he said. Former Speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives Bill O’Brien strikes a similar note, suggesting Trump needs to prove himself again in the Granite State. “It’s going to be an intense primary,” O’Brien said. “There are some great candidates who are developing. I’m sure he would be one of them. “Another potential contender is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, someone that many Republicans, including Trump supporters, are watching.[DeSantis]is being slapped in Florida because a lot of people don’t meet him running,” Baldasaro said . “They like him as their governor, and I think they would get back at him.” In an interview with News 9, former Vice President Mike Pence was asked about the idea of ​​other Republicans keeping tabs on the White House resign if Trump comes into play. “Well, it’s a free country,” Pence said. “(Trump) is entitled to make any announcement he wants to make tonight, but look. As I have toured this country, I have been deeply moved by the number of Americans who have approached me to express their appreciation for the achievements of the Trump-Pence administration. But almost in the same breath they told me they yearn for a leadership that can unite our country around our highest ideals.”

Former President Donald Trump is expected to launch his 2024 presidential campaign from Mar-a-Lago in Florida Tuesday night, but the reaction from Republicans in New Hampshire has been mixed.

Longtime Trump supporter State Assemblyman Al Baldasaro, R-Londonderry, will be in Florida for Trump’s announcement.

“I think he’s the only one doing the right thing, telling it like it is,” Baldasaro said.

Other key Trump allies in New Hampshire now hold top posts in the party, such as Republican National Committee member Chris Ager. His position requires him to remain neutral, and he said he will remain so until a candidate is selected.

“We will treat everyone fairly and equally, so let the process begin,” he said.

“[DeSantis]is going to take a beating in Florida because a lot of people I meet don’t want him to run,” Baldasaro said. “They like him as their governor and I think they would get revenge on him.”

In an interview with News 9, former Vice President Mike Pence was asked about the idea that other Republicans eyeing the White House should resign if Trump comes into the running.

“Well, it’s a free country,” Pence said. “(Trump) has every right to make any announcement he wants to make tonight, but look. As I have traveled through this country, I have been deeply moved by how many Americans have approached me to express their appreciation for the Trump Pence administration’s record. But almost in the same breath, they told me they yearn for a leadership that can unite our country around our highest ideals.”
