Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) said Friday former President Donald Trump should not be the 2024 Republican nominee, but Thursday polling suggests otherwise.
Toomey told CNBC:
I think that the future of our party is to be a party of ideas, and not to be a party about any one individual, and I think we will learn a lot from the next set of primaries. I think after what happened post-2020 election, I think the president’s behavior was completely unacceptable, so I don’t think he should be the nominee to lead the party in 2024.
When challenged on whether he is a conservative fighter who puts American first and not globalist interests, Toomey responded that he is “a conservative Republican by any objective measure… by looking at my views compared to that of a traditional conservative Republican.”
