President Trump is exactly right. His win record is unmatched! When he called me and endorsed me for Arizona Attorney General he told me it’s over for my opponents, and he’s right. They just don’t know it yet.
Thank you, Mr. President! pic.twitter.com/72RK8NaSAa

For four years Trump has teased the possibility of another presidential bid. He reportedly hopes to capitalize off Biden’s decreasing poll numbers and announce his campaign this summer.
An Emerson College poll released June 29 found Trump leading the Republican pack, earning the support of about 56 percent of primary voters. DeSantis (R-Fla.) followed with just under 20 percent. Former Vice President Mike Pence (R-Ind.) received about nine percent of support. Only about eight percent said they were undecided.
Biden’s popularity has been damaged by economic concerns including inflation and high gas prices. These concerns have been largely fueled by the Russia-Ukraine war, which has given Republicans hope to retake majorities in Congress this year.
