Republican Congressman Don Bacon doesn’t intend to cast another vote for Donald Trump in the future. During an appearance with Meet the Press the Nebraska Republican said despite his support of Trump in the past, he plans to support a different nominee during the 2024 primary.

According to The Washington Examiner:

“We have to learn the lesson of ‘Why did we lose in 2020?’ It was the comportment and the temperament,” Bacon said. “And yes, a democracy respects elections. And our president should have respected the conclusion [in 2020], particularly when all the court cases were figured out.”

Chuck Todd then asked if he could imagine voting for Trump to which Bacon replied it was not his focus.

“Well, I’m going to focus on 2022, but no, I’ll be looking for other candidates,” Bacon noted. “We have a great slate of potential Republican presidents for 2024, and I look forward to being very involved and trying to get the right candidate nominated.”

When asked by Todd if he would support Trump if he was nominated, the Nebraska Republican seemed uncertain.

“You know, I’m reluctant to go there. But he’s not going to be my choice in the primary, that’s for sure.”

Trump has repeatedly hinted at launching another presidential campaign but has stopped short of making any official announcements. Many have speculated that Trump intends to use the 2022 midterms as a barometer of his remaining influence over the Republican Party and that his candidates’ successes– or failures will be a major determining factor leading to his decision to run.

Don’t you just love turncoats ? They come in both parties and seems to me that they are untrustworthy to do that….who would want a turncoat you can’t trust or depend on ?……What a legacy you will leave behind when history is recorded that you are a back stabber to your party for another one, to change a party is fine but to degrade and bad mouth your former party members is way not cool !!!! Never seen so many as we have the past two elections and lookie here if we ” ain’t ” got them crawling out of the wood work still……..good luck losers neither party will in time not want you around to spread joy and revelations !!!

Well , you certainly are the dumbass. There were no court cases “figured out”. The cowardly courts refused to hear any cases. Anyone with a brain knows the 2020 election was stolen.

Bacon should have kept his opinion to himself. I hope his people let him know that also.
The Democrats have denied every election they have lost. Remember hangings chads?
But it is not alright for Republicans? Guess we all aren’t created equal, thought so.
There is only about 75 or 80 million that believe the 2020 election was corrupt,
so why can’t we say so. Why can’t we ask for audits? Just because Wlm Barr thinks
that it was fair doesn’t make it so. His opinion is no better than mine. He should have kept
his thoughts to himself also. I do wish there was more loyality in the Republican Party.

For Trump, hand shaking and cheek kissing are extraneous to the goal. Early in his first campaign, I was a bit put off by his arrogance, but I got used to it. I still believe he’d be a stronger candidate if he tone down the arrogance but millions of others may also have gotten used to it. And on another hand, I’d guess many remain sensitive and cringe when he goes off the diplomacy track. Regardless, this will be his last run.

What looks like arrogance to you is just President Trump taking no prisoners. He’s been attacked so much he knows he has to sound tough. Someone needs to sound tough on the Repub party.

Tell the Fool to look at the enormous amount of evidence stating the election was rigged. A few states are taling about decertifying the electoral results – does this fool ever get out of the house?

Yet another fake Republican got elected in Nebraska. What is going on down there?

This will backfire on Bacon. Hmmm, the first case of bacon burning itself?
