The 2024 presidential election, while still in its early stages, is very much underway. Candidates like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Vice President Mike Pence, and former President Trump are each competing to win the GOP nomination.
Next month, Republican voters will get to see qualifying GOP candidates debate one another for the very first time. However, within the Republican Party, some leaders have already chosen which candidates they want to throw their weight behind.
In the case of West Virginia GOP Gov. Jim Justice, his favored candidate for the 2024 election is none other than Trump, as the Daily Caller reports.
A Closer Look at Justice’s Endorsement of Trump
Taking to Twitter, the West Virginia governor praised the former president’s “success” and “leadership.”
After noting how this greatly contrasts with Biden’s failure and lack of leadership, Justice said he believes Trump will secure the 2024 GOP nomination and then retake the White House in January 2025.

Amid endorsing Trump, Justice also reiterated what a major disaster Biden’s been for the country. The West Virginia governor stressed that the current president has repeatedly dropped the ball on foreign policy, domestic energy, immigration, crime, education, and more.
Stay Tuned For More Endorsements
As the 2024 Republican primary election plays out, conservative voters can expect more party leaders to make endorsements. Likewise, low-polling candidates who eventually drop out are also likely to endorse one of the remaining contenders.
On social media, Justice has been vocal in sharing his view that GOP primary polls and overall political momentum are both in Trump’s favor. This comes in addition to him lauding the former president’s record from his last term in office.
They have seen the polling and will stop at nothing to defeat President Trump.
We are witnessing the weaponization of the federal government by the Biden Administration to target their top political opponent.

Finally, the West Virginia governor warns that both the mainstream media and political establishment are pulling out all possible stops to sabotage the former president’s current run for the White House.
