“In just four years, President Trump delivered great results for the American people,” Mullin wrote in his statement. “He lowered taxes, secured American energy independence, protected our Second Amendment, and never backed down from the radical Left threatening our way of life.”
Mullin, who said he is proud to call Trump a friend, added that the former president is the exact person needed to lead the country through the tough road ahead.
Mullin’s Trump endorsement comes after Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), Eric Schmitt (R-MO) and J.D. Vance (R-OH) all endorsed the former president for a second term in office.
According to Politico, Schmitt said he was supporting Trump while adding that the former president is very popular in Missouri.
“He’s been somebody that’s gotten the support of Missourians by big margins a couple times. He has my support,” Schmitt said of Trump in an interview.
Tuberville said he was anticipating more endorsements to follow after he spoke to Trump and received the former president’s assurance on the issue. Tuberville revealed that Trump told him the endorsements would roll in gradually and then build momentum.
“I’m gonna be disappointed in the summertime if we don’t have more [endorsements]. I’ll put it that way. Right now, it’s no big concern,” Tuberville said.
Graham said he expects others to figure out for themselves if they wanted to support the former president.
“They’re all politicians,” said Graham. “Nobody endorsed him the last time he won.”
