[WATCH] GOP Senator Says He Won’t Vote For Trump If He Runs in 2024

During an interview with Axios co-founder Mike Allen, Se. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said he doesn’t know if Donald Trump will run in 2024, but disputed the assumption that he would win the GOP nomination if he did run.

It’s a rare display of criticism from within the party that has mostly remained aligned behind the Former Guy. “Trump is the first president in the Republican side at least to lose the House, the Senate, and the presidency in four years. Elections are about winning,” Cassidy said.

WASHINGTON, DC – FEBRUARY 12: Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) talks to reporters in the Senate subway on his way to the fourth day of the Senate’s second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump at the U.S. Capitol on February 12, 2021, in Washington, DC.

Cassidy was one of just seven Republican senators to vote to convict Trump at the impeachment trial in January, and he told Mike Allen that he wouldn’t vote for Trump in 2024 if he ends up being the party’s nominee again. He voted to convict Trump, he says, because he took “an oath to support and defend the Constitution. And when there was a pattern of behavior that culminated as it did on January the 6th — and we’ve had revelations since — that just led me to that decision.”

“If you want to win the presidency ― and hopefully that’s what voters are thinking about ― I think he might [not win the nomination],” he added.
