US Rep Lance Gooden Endorses Trump for 2024 Just One Day after Meeting DeSantis

US Rep Lance Gooden from Texas endorsed President Donald Trump for 2024 just a day after meeting with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

That’s likely not the kind of response DeSantis wanted.

Gooden tweeted a copy of a press release confirming he met with DeSantis yesterday, but the meeting didn’t appear to go well, since he promptly announced he was supporting President Donald Trump in 2024.

Attorney Jenna Ellis, who recently jumped on the DeSantis train, noticed Gooden’s tweet.

The Florida governor has yet to announce a presidential run despite every indication he intends to do so.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to clean up endorsements for his 2024 White House run, including several of those from the Florida Republican delegation.

As the Daily Mail reported:

Walking away from his meetings Tuesday, two more Republicans levied their endorsements for the former president over the highly popular governor of their state.

Reps. Brian Mast of Florida and Lance Gooden of Texas said they would support Trump’s primary run.

Even after Gooden said he had a ‘positive meeting’ face-to-face with DeSantis on Tuesday, it wasn’t enough to throw support for the Florida Governor.

This brings the total number of endorsements for Trump to seven out of the 20 Republican members of Congress from Florida.

Florida GOP Rep. Greg Steube, who also endorsed Trump over DeSantis and recently made headlines for a freak accident where he fell off a ladder, said the governor never reached out or replied to him during his time in the House.

The congressman told Politico that he made multiple attempts to connect with DeSantis. He said he was snubbed from being able to stand alongside the governor during an event on Hurricane Ian relief.

DeSantis has earned one official endorsement from a Florida lawmaker, despite not yet officially entering the running. Rep. Laurel Lee is a freshman congresswoman who previously served as Florida’s secretary of State under DeSantis.

Meanwhile, rumors have begun swirling about who Trump will choose for his potential 2024 running mate if he wins the GOP nomination.

As we reported on Tuesday, the 45th president is likely to choose a candidate who is “ideologically aligned,” has “charisma,” and is “loyal,” according to insiders.

As The Daily Caller reported:

“No candidates have publicly announced their intent to be Trump’s VP, but the former president has indicated that ‘a lot of people’ are ‘auditioning’ behind the scenes. Trump insiders told the Caller that although there haven’t been any formal discussions to narrow down the pool, there are a set of characteristics that will likely be considered.”
