Donald Trump endorses Senate Joe Gruters for Florida’s State Senate District 23
Former President Donald Trump has decided to extend his support to another candidate. Trump has endorsed Senate Joe Gruters for Florida’s State Senate race for District 23. Senator Joe Gruters will be running for re-election this year. The former President is very impressed with the Senator and has showered him with many compliments. This year Gruters will be facing Seminole County conservative activist Michael Johnson. Michael claims to say that the reason behind his contesting the election is because he is angry with a decision made by the Senator. Trump talks about what a good job Joe had done during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Trump speaks about how Joe is putting America first and is trying to do everything in his power to get the best policies for the citizens of America. “Joe Gruters is delivering tremendous results for the incredible people of Florida! A proud fourth-generation Sarasotan and small business owner, Joe is fighting hard to Grow Florida’s Economy, Create Great Jobs, Lower Taxes, Slash Regulations, and Ensure Free, Fair, and Honest Elections. Joe did a wonderful job as Florida State Chair of my 2016 Campaign. He is a MAGA Champion. Joe Gruters has my Complete and Total Endorsement for Florida’s State Senate District 23! Thanks to redistricting, Gruters is running in Senate District 23,” said Trump in a statement released by his Save America PAC.
Reaction to this endorsement
Most people don’t see this endorsement as a big surprise as Joe has been in Trump’s inner circle for a very long time. Joe played an important role in Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Gruters co-chaired the campaigns held in Florida during the 2016 elections, ensuring that Trump got the most votes. In 2016, Trump won in Florida State over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Later that same year, Gruters won a seat in the Florida House and has since won a seat in the State Senate. Ever since 2016, Gruters has been getting more and more close to the former President. In 2018, he won the position of chair of the Republican Party of Florida. Gruters was also re-elected for that same position again in 2020. During the 2020 presidential elections though Trump lost the election nationwide, he won in Florida by three percentage points. Gruters strongly believed there should be limited use of drop boxes and ballot boxes during the 2020 presidential elections. He even pushed a lot to implement these changes. However, Gruters has complimented Florida for having some of the most strict and tight election protection systems compared to the other States.
