The Florida Republican Party announced that it is formally supporting former President Donald Trump in his bid to take back the White House, adding another presidential endorsement to his list of allies. The Florida GOP formally supported Trump for president today. The Republican Party of Florida said in a post on X that "it is time Republicans unite to DEFEAT Biden and safeguard the future of our country."

There was a decision to support President Trump made on Friday at the Florida GOP annual conference in Wesley Chapel, Florida Voice reports.

Given that President Trump is still up against a primary challenger, the party's support seems peculiar considering the timing of previous endorsements. Many people see the move as a sign of support for the theory that President Trump has almost secured the Republican presidential nomination.

The Duval County Republican Party chairman, Florida state representative Dean Black, submitted the motion endorsing President Trump, arguing that it is clear who the GOP candidate would be.

"There is no longer a primary!" Mr. Black posted anything on X. "This is our chance to come together and win for @realDonaldTrump in Florida!"

A day after President Trump's spectacular primary win in the Nevada caucus—which broke the previous record for the most votes received—was the voting on the endorsement.
The former president's historic victories in Iowa and New Hampshire preceded his primary triumph in Nevada.

Predicting Friday's vote, Florida GOP Chairman Evan Power said that it was time to unite with President Trump after his two historic victories in January.

In January, Mr. Power said, "It is evident from the results of Iowa and New Hampshire that President Trump is the presumed candidate of the Republican Party."

"To that end, at our annual meeting on February 10th, the Republican Party of Florida will hold a formal vote to endorse President Trump," he said. "It is time for Republicans to unite and focus 100% of our energies on defeating Joe Biden and his failed administration in November," he added.

Some have expressed astonishment at President Trump's recent historic primary victory.

"I believe that everyone entered the campaign with the expectation that the Trump fever would subside, but it didn't. Veteran Republican strategist Chip Saltsman, who oversaw the campaign of one of President Trump's opponents, told The Associated Press that "it became hotter."
