Former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway contended that the longer the GOP presidential candidates list gets, the better it is for former President Donald Trump.
Conway’s comments come as Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) are set to announce their candidacies this week. Former South Carolina governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, political newcomer Vivek Ramaswamy, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson have also declared their 2024 election bids.
“The more the merrier is probably Donald Trump’s anthem,” Conway told The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, brushing off any concern that a crowded Republican primary field could hurt the former president’s chance at reelection.
She continued, “He is the front-runner, beating his closest competitor Ron DeSantis. Competition benefits him because he loves competition.”
The article noted a recent poll that revealed Trump holding a large lead over DeSantis by a margin of 53.5% to 20.8%.
Conway noted that Trump will benefit from the “winner takes all” Republican primary states.
She said, “There are now 17 winner-takes-all primary states on the Republican side. There were seven in 2016. He is a winner-take-all type of guy. He can get 30%, 32%, maybe 25%, if there are all these candidates, and take every single delegate.”
Conway added, “If you don’t want Donald Trump to be the nominee, you have a choice to make. You either run against him hammer and tong, square on, or you don’t run at all because too many people will dilute it.”
