House Republicans representing the districts that voted for President Biden in the 2020 presidential election have been very quiet about whether they would welcome support from former President Donald Trump and if they support him he should run for president again in 2024.
Fox News Digital contacted each of these ten Republicans and asked if they wanted or approved of Trump, and if they supported him, he would seek another presidency in the 2024 election, as he suggested.
Only one person responded through a statement from his office with the clear intention of avoiding Trump.
“Representative. Bacon is not seeking President Trump’s approval and is not looking toward 2024 at this time, but is focusing on 2022 and reclaiming the House,” a statement from spokesman Dan Bacon, R-Neb’s office. , Read.

Of the nine unresponsive Republicans, Rep. David Schwickert, R.-Ariz., Rep. David Valado, R.-Calif., Rep. Mike Garcia, R.-Calif., Rep. Young Kim, R.-Calif., Rep. . Michelle Steele, R-Calif., Rep. Peter Meizer, R-Mich., Representative Yvette Herrell, RN.M., Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio and Representative Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa.
Meizer and Valadao were two of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump after the January 6 attack on US capital last year.
Fox News also contacted the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for comment on the lack of response from the group of digital Republicans. Spokesman Chris Taylor responded by accusing them of trying to evade the party’s “MAGA agenda”.
“Republicans like Dan Bacon try to flee like chickens from their party’s extremist MAGA agenda. They are well aware of their terrorist agenda and their decades – long plot to harm our children and adults, undermine our voting power. Non-starter, “said Taylor.
Given that Republicans are set to retake the House of Representatives in this year’s midterm elections, it is clear that considering the sharp fall in historic trends and Biden’s approval ratings, those representing these swing districts could be on the wrong path leading to a racial majority. Will be replaying to 2020 once again.
