In an unsurprising move, the Alabama Republican Party finally gave its official Presidential endorsement to former President Donald Trump.
It has been clear for some time that the party was destined to back Trump in the Presidential election, with every Republican member of the state’s delegation backing him.
Still, the party broke with its tradition of not backing candidates in primary elections.
“The Alabama Republican Party sent a clear message this weekend that we are united behind President Donald Trump as the 2024 Republican nominee. We respect the other candidates, and we thank them for running, but the Alabama GOP believes Donald Trump is the clear conservative choice,” said ALGOP Chairman John Wahl. “He has proven time and time again that he will never stop fighting to put America first and defend the values that made America great.
“The bottom line is that Donald Trump has a clear track record of improving the economy, creating jobs, strengthening our national defense, and pushing back on the socialist agenda being forced on Americans. Those are the values we need in the White House to get our country back on track. The Alabama GOP believes it is the time to unite behind President Trump and focus our time, energy, and resources on defeating Joe Biden and his disastrous policies in November.”
It has also been clear that Trump will almost assuredly be the party nominee for at least a couple of weeks as Trump began winning caucuses and primaries in Iowa and New Hampshire.
The former President’s looming trials on 91 felony charges have not deterred Republicans from selecting Trump, nor has a court finding him guilty of the sexual assault of author E. Jean Carrol.
