Not only is President Trump leading in polls, but he’s also gaining significant endorsements.
On Tuesday night during an appearance on Fox News’ Hannity, Senator John Barrasso, the third-ranking Senate Republican, announced that he is officially endorsing President Trump.
“People of Wyoming and, of course, all your viewers, know that the country was much better off under President Donald Trump and Joe Biden continues to fail America,” Sen. Barrasso told Sean Hannity.
Sen. Barrasso went on to say, “… this is a disaster. We cannot afford another 4 years of Joe Biden’s failures so if you wanna get the country back on track, which is what I wanna do, we need a strong Republican conservative House and Senate and we need Donald Trump back in the White House.”
“That’s why, tonight, I am endorsing Donald Trump for president of the United States,” Sen. Barrasso announced.

Barrasso is the 20th Senate Republican to endorse President Trump.
Sen. John Barrasso, the No. 3 Senate Republican, endorsed former President Donald Trump on Tuesday, becoming the highest-ranking GOP senator to support Trump’s 2024 bid.
“If you want to get the country back on track, which is what I want to do, we need a strong, Republican, conservative House and Senate. And we need Donald Trump back in the White House,” Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday night.
Barraso’s backing for Trump is a significant development in the Senate GOP. For one, Barrasso becomes only the second member of elected leadership to back Trump; campaign chief Steve Daines (R-Mont.) backed Trump last year, in part to help coordinate candidate recruitment in key Senate races.
The Senate Republican Conference chair’s endorsement of the former president also officially establishes him as the most Trump-friendly GOP senior Republican in a conference that will have a new leader in the coming years. Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.), former Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Barrasso are seen within the Senate GOP as the favorites to succeed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Trump took to Truth Social to thank him for his endorsement.
Thank you to the GREAT Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming for such a powerful Endorsement, delivered beautifully tonight on the Sean Hannity Show. To know John is to both like and respect him, a truly extraordinary man. THANK YOU JOHN!!!
