( – On Sunday, during a couple of interviews Sens. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) stated that they would not be endorsing the presidential bid of former President Donald Trump for the White House. 

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” Rounds had argued that he would not be endorsing Trump but that he would be voting for whoever ended up being the Republican nominee. Currently, Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee in the 2024 presidential race. 

Rounds had argued that as he has previously stated his first choice would have been Sen. Tim Scott who he believed would have made a great statement. He then pointed out that Scott had given Trump his endorsement and that he was planning on supporting whoever became the eventual nominee. 

He continued by arguing that it was a binary choice and that either people would continue with the current economic policies or they would move towards a different position that would allow the country’s economy to proceed. 

CNN’s Dana Bash specifically asked Rounds if he would be endorsing Trump, to which Rounds had stated that he was endorsing the Republican nominee. 

Cassidy, however , during his interview on NBC News’s “Meet the Press” did not disclose whether or not he would be voting for Trump. Cassidy had been one of the seven GOP senators that had voted in favor of Trump getting impeached after the Capitol attack. Cassidy did say that at this point he planned to vote for the GOP candidate in the upcoming election.
