Trump endorses Jensen for governor

Late on Tuesday, former president Donald Trump gave his support to Scott Jensen, the GOP candidate for governor.

On his Truth Social social media page, Trump stated that Minnesota “finally has a chance to have a fantastic Governor.” He continued by saying that Jensen is “Strong on both combating Crime and providing Solid and Sensible Education,” and that he will “bring Minnesota back from the edge.”

Using his signature flourish, Trump said, “Dr. Scott Jensen gets my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Trump’s endorsement could improve Jensen’s standing within the Republican base of Trump backers, but it has a price. In a state that the 45th president lost in 2020 by 7 percentage points, Democrats are keen to associate themselves with Trump.

Additionally, after leaving office, Trump has been under fire for his involvement in the attack on the US Capitol on January 6. In addition, he is being looked into for a wide range of suspected criminal and civil charges, including as attempting to rig the Georgia election results in his favor, stealing government papers and impeding the investigation into the theft, and operating a fraudulent company. Former CFO Allen Weisselberg of his business has admitted to financial crimes.

Trump supported Kim Crockett, a well-known election skeptic, as the GOP’s secretary of state contender earlier on Tuesday. Democrats in Minnesota began to raise money soon after thanks to the endorsement.

The endorsements are stoking rumors in Republican circles that Trump would visit Minnesota in the last days leading up to the election on November 8th. Trump reportedly believes that a late visit in 2016 almost helped him defeat Hillary Clinton in this election.

Jensen wants to unseat Tim Walz, the DFL governor.
