Senator Bill Cassidy stated that if voters think about winning in 2024 Trump could lose the primary.

He said that "Elections are all about winning", adding that the GOP had lost the House, Senate and White House under Trump.

Cassidy was among seven Republican senators that voted for Trump's conviction in his impeachment trial.

Louisiana GOP Senator Bill Cassidy said that he isn't so certain former President Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination, if he decides he wants to run for president in 2024.

"President Trump is the Republican's first president to at least lose the House, Senate and presidency in four years." "Elections are about winning," Cassidy stated during a Sunday interview on HBO's Axios.

Mike Allen, an interviewer, asked Cassidy whether he believed Trump could lose the nomination.

Cassidy stated, "Well, if your goal is to win the presidency – and I hope that's what voters are considering - then I believe he could,"

Cassidy was among seven Republican senators that voted to convict Trump in his impeachment trial, which followed the Capitol riot. Trump was found not guilty, but Cassidy repeatedly supported his vote to convict.

Cassidy stated in an interview that "I swear to defend and support the Constitution" and that he took the oath when there was a pattern or behavior that culminated on January 6th. We've had revelations ever since.

Trump has not yet officially declared his plans to run for president in 2024. However, he has teased the idea repeatedly at rallies as well as during interviews with media.

Cassidy stated to Axios that if Trump runs, he will not be voting for him.
