(PartiallyPolitics.com) – South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) has announced that she was endorsing former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential race, marking yet another big name in the GOP to support Trump who is trying to win back the White House and serve a second term.
On Friday during an evening political event in Rapid City, South Dakota she introduced Trump and stated that she was going to do everything possible to help him win the election. She also stated that Trump was the “45th and the 47th President of the United States.”
The event and support that Trump has received from Noem has sparked a lot of speculation about Noem being a possible running mate for the former President if he wins the 2024 Republican primary race which he is currently leading. If Noem’s endorsement helps improve Trump’s chances in the race and assist him in winning, it will be even more likely that she might be considered for the role.
On Thursday Noem stated during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” that they had not yet had any discussions about her possibly being Trump’s vice presidential pick. In a later interview on Fox News Digital when asked about whether her current teaming up with the former President should be viewed as a test of her serving as his running mate, Noem argued that she did not believe that to be the case. She added that if she was offered the job she would need to carefully consider it especially given how important this election is for the country’s future.
