(LibertySociety.com) – Former President Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign saw a huge boost in donations after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg announced that he was indicting him for his alleged crimes. According to an April 4 report from Fox News, Trump’s campaign raked in $8 million between March 30, the day he was indicted, and the night of April 3, shortly before he was arraigned in court.
Despite his legal issues, Trump hasn’t shown any sign of backing down from his 2024 campaign. Other notable candidates for the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary Election include former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, and Vivek Ramaswamy. The media has been filled with speculation that others such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, will throw their hats in the ring as well. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is rumored to be pushing his official announcement for re-election to late summer 2023, with the possibility of a delay until fall. The reason for the delay is unknown, but Biden administration officials claim that there is no rush in the matter.
The Republican candidate pool seems to be growing each month, with new challengers believing that they have what it takes to beat Trump in the primary. Hutchinson believes that he should withdraw his name from the race, citing his legal woes. Trump claims that he is only being targeted because he disrupted the establishment way of doing things in Washington D.C.
Fox News reported that GOP pollster Daron Shaw has noted that the indictment has been Trump a boost among GOP primary voters. However, there are ongoing questions about whether this boost will be sustained over the long-term. Only time will tell.
