( – Three House Republicans have moved away from former President Donald Trump and have instead chosen to endorse other candidates in the 2024 Republican primary race.

According to an article by the Washington Times, a small group of House Republicans has selected to break from the rest of the party and choose to endorse other candidates instead of Trump. Specifically, Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Chip Roy of Texas have both endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis, while being second in the polls, has not yet officially launched a presidential campaign nor has he disclosed his intention for 2024.

At the same time, Rep. Ralph Norman of South Carolina has officially endorsed former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who was the first major Republican to launch a campaign challenging Donald Trump on Feb. 14.

Roy also predicted that more of his colleagues were going to endorse DeSantis soon, adding that the Florida governor, “won 62% of the Hispanic vote, 50% of single females and won by a million and a half votes” in his 2022 reelection. He added that many members of his party were interested in how things with DeSantis unfold.

Massie while discussing DeSantis claimed that America is in need of a leader that “is decisive, respects the Constitution, understands the policy, puts family first, and leads by inspiring.”

Despite these claims Trump continues to be the front-runner in all of the national polls, leading against DeSantis by more than 30 points. DeSantis currently has around 25 percent of Republican support, while every other GOP candidate, both potential and declared, is only polling in single digits.
