(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Democrat Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker in a recent statement argued that former President Donald Trump’s success in the Iowa caucuses had shown a weakness of the former President.
On Monday night, the Biden campaign surrogate argued on MSNBC that Trump’s performance had shown a weakness. The votes were still being counted at the time of that statement, however, Trump managed to win the state with 51.01 percent of the votes. In second place was Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis with 21.23 percent while Nikki Haley came close to DeSantis with 19.12 percent. In fourth place was Vivek Ramaswamy with only 7.66 percent. Following that result, he opted to suspend his campaign and announced his endorsement for the former President.
Pritzker told MSNBC that Trump was the “most famous Republican” and the guy who had essentially built the GOP in its current shape, and yet around half of his party did not support him in the caucus. He added that this was very telling and showed that Trump had a weakness and that this could be an opportunity for the Democratic party especially if the GOP base did not end up turning out to support the former president in the general election and they showed up more enthusiastically in the general elections. He added that independents were also not fond of the former President which shows that the Democratic party was actually in good shape considering everything that was occurring on the Republican party.
Pritzker also pointed out that if Trump managed to be the winner in Iowa then he would also win South Carolina and New Hampshire, which would effectively mean that the primary race is over. However, the truth is that the other Republican candidates were running as if they were mini-me Trump Republicans.
Last year, Pritzker stated that he would back President Joe Biden’s 2024 reelection campaign.
