Republican senator casts Trump as election loser destined to lose 2024 nomination

An ex-Republican senator called Donald Trump an election loser and said that he is unlikely to win the GOP's nomination for president in 2024, if he chooses to run.
Senator Bill Cassidy was one of seven Republicans who voted in favor of Trump's conviction in connection with the Capitol riot. He responded by dismissing Mike Allen, Axios cofounder, who suggested that Trump would have a winning ticket if he ran again.

Cassidy said, "I don’t know that." "President Trump is the first president (at least on the Republican side) to lose the House, Senate and presidency in four years." It's all about winning.

Louisiana Republican said that Trump might lose the GOP nomination race, despite his high poll numbers among Republicans looking ahead to 2024.


He said that if you want the presidency, and I hope that's what voters think about, I believe he could," he stated in an interview with Axios on HBO.

Cassidy stated that he would not vote in Trump's 2024 election.

Trump endorsed John Kennedy, the other U.S. senator from Louisiana, to be reelected in June. He also expressed disapproval for Cassidy.

Trump stated that John Kennedy, unlike Louisiana's other senator Bill Cassidy who used my name in advertisements and everywhere else to get reelected, is the real deal. He is a brilliant, highly educated man who will not let you down.


Trump was able to survive the Senate impeachment trial. This was the second time he had to face it. He has also teased the possibility of running for the presidency again in 2024. He hasn't made any promises.

Cassidy said that Trump was convicted of inciting insurrection and that he was being censured by the Republican Party in his state. He laughed and said, "I slept very well that evening."

Senator Trump claimed that he voted for Trump's conviction because he had sworn an oath supporting and defending the Constitution. I was led to this decision by revelations that we have received since January 6th, when there was a pattern in behavior that culminated in the same outcome.
