The Midterm elections didn’t go the way Republicans expected.
That left Donald Trump with a tough decision to make.
And Donald Trump was floored when a top advisor gave him shocking advice.
Georgia is once again going to be the center of the political universe with the state’s December runoff election for the Senate.
Neither Trump-backed Republican candidate Herschel Walker and Democrat incumbent Raphael Warnock hit 50% in the election because of a Libertarian candidate, forcing the pair into a runoff under Georgia law.
Depending on the outcome of other Senate races that are still too close to call, the Georgia race could once again decide which party controls the Senate.
Sen. Warnock won a runoff for a special election in January 2021 to give Democrats control of the Senate.
Before the runoff election, all eyes will be on former President Donald Trump.
Trump is expected to announce his 2024 Presidential bid on November 15 after dropping a major hint during a campaign rally in Ohio the day before the Midterm elections.
“I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at Mar-a-Lago, Florida,” Trump said at the rally.
With Trump expected to launch a Presidential bid, his former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany gave him some shocking advice.
McEnany now works as a Fox News contributor after leaving the White House.
During an appearance on Outnumbered, the panel was discussing the 2024 Presidential election.
McEnany argued that all focus for Republicans right now should be on winning the crucial Senate election in Georgia.
“I know there’s a temptation to start talking about 2024 — no, no, no, no, no,” McEnany said. “2022 is not over. Every Republican energy needs to go to grinding the Biden agenda to a halt, and that could go straight through the state of Georgia.”
Host Harris Faulkner asked McEnany if that included her former boss, Donald Trump.
“I think he needs to put it on pause, absolutely,” McEnany replied.
She then said the Republican strategy to boost Herschel Walker in the runoff should be sidelining Trump in favor of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Faulkner asked McEnany if Trump should campaign in Georgia for Walker during the runoff election.
“I think we’ve got to make strategic calculations. Gov. DeSantis, I think he should be welcome to the state, given what happened last night. You’ve got to look at the realities on the ground,” McEnany said.
Despite his former Press Secretary’s advice, it appears that Trump is moving full steam ahead with a Presidential announcement.
Donald Trump’s decision about whether or not to campaign for Herschel Walker is one of the biggest questions hanging over Georgia’s Senate runoff election.
