House Majority Leader Steve Scalise endorsed former President Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential bid Tuesday morning, saying he believes Trump is the best person for the job.

“I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for president in 2024, and I look forward to working with President Trump and a Republican House and Senate to fight for those families who are struggling under the weight of Biden’s failed policies,” Scalise said in a statement.

The former president has picked up endorsements from seven governors, 18 Republican senators and more than 90 House Republicans. Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson recently said he became an “active Trump support” when the FBI raided the former president’s Mar-a-Lago compound in August 2022. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Trump Rips RNC, Says They Have To Stop Debates)

Trump remains ahead of his GOP primary opponents in all national polling. Several polls also show Trump beating Biden in the general election. President Joe Biden is trailing Trump among Hispanic voters for a potential 2024 rematch, according to a Monday poll, which found that Trump led Biden by 5 points among the crucial voting bloc Democrats typically secure by large margins.
