Mayor Trent Staggs of Riverton, Utah, who is running to unseat incumbent Sen. Mitt Romney in the 2024 Republican primary, revealed his presidential endorsement exclusively to the Daily Caller Thursday.
“Since Joe Biden has been elected, we’ve seen crippling inflation domestically and turmoil abroad. Right now, as he weaponizes the Justice Department against his political opponents, we need a disruptor. We need someone who’s going to get things done. Donald Trump is the one candidate we don’t have to doubt what he’ll do because we’ve seen what he’s done,” Stagg told the Daily Caller.
“I like many long to have $2 gas and world peace again, so I’m proudly supporting the man who already delivered that, Donald Trump. ”
Utah needs another proven fighter and conservative in the Senate. We need someone unafraid to stand against the Washington establishment. That’s who I am, but I need your help to get there https://t.co/yg5tnTG4mV pic.twitter.com/qof9JQYi7C

Staggs first made headlines for calling out his local school board after inappropriate, pornographic materials were allegedly found in schools. More than a hundred volumes of “filth” were reportedly uncovered by a parent organization. (RELATED: Mitt Romney Spends Way Too Long Telling America How Much He Loves Weiners)
Staggs announced his candidacy for the 2024 Republican Utah primary in May, becoming one of several potential contenders for Romney’s seat. In late July he challenged Romney to the debate stage to discuss why the Senator worked so hard to get President Joe Biden elected.
