A majority of Republican voters feel former President Donald Trump would be their strongest nominee in the 2024 election. According to the Monmouth ("Mon-muth") University Poll, Trump's backing has remained firm while support for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has faded, even though he remains about as well liked as Trump among GOP voters. [Note: the interviews for this poll were completed before DeSantis officially launched his campaign last week.] Nearly half (45%) of Republican voters " including those who lean toward the GOP " say Trump is definitely the strongest candidate to beat President Joe Biden in 2024, and another 18% think he is probably the strongest candidate. Just one-third of GOP voters say another Republican would definitely (13%) or probably (19%) be a stronger candidate than Trump.

Donald Trump's lawyer tasked with searching for classified documents at Mar-a-Lago after the justice department issued a subpoena told associates that he was waved off from searching the former president's office, where the FBI later found the most sensitive materials anywhere on the property.

A far-right activist Laura Loomer is facing an angry backlash after alleging Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' wife's cancer fight was "over exaggerated" in an effort to win votes. Loomer, an anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist who twice unsuccessfully ran for congressional office in Florida, made the comments in a tweet posted days after DeSantis entered into the race for the 2024 GOP nomination against former president Donald Trump. Trump, who remains the frontrunner for the nomination, has spent the months since he launched his campaign to regain the White House attacking DeSantis, who has been long viewed as his most serious challenger. In a lengthy tweet, Loomer, a Trump loyalist the former president reportedly wanted to hire for a campaign role, questioned whether Casey DeSantis had actually battled cancer.
