On Monday, U.S. Rep. Cory Mills, R-Fla., endorsed former President Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.
Mills became the fourth member of the Florida congressional delegation to back Trump for president.
“I think that what’s happening in New York is a very unifying event,” Mills told Time Magazine, which broke the news on Monday. “We need to stop the infighting and come together and unify. And I think right now the person that we need to be unifying behind is President Trump.”
Mills joins fellow Florida Republican U.S. Reps. Byron Donalds, Matt Gaetz and Anna Paulina Luna in backing Trump. Donalds announced his support for Trump last week.
According to Time, other members of the Florida delegation are set to back Trump even as Gov. Ron DeSantis considers launching a presidential bid.
“Other GOP Florida House lawmakers have told associates that they will endorse Trump in the coming days or weeks, including Reps. Kat Cammack, Brian Mast, Vern Buchanan, and Greg Steube, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. None of those legislators returned requests for comment,” Time reported.
Mills won an open seat in Central Florida in 2022.
Other Republican presidential candidates include former UN Amb. Nikki Haley, former Gov. Asa Hutchinson, R-Ark., former Cranston Mayor Steve Laffey, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy and former Montana Sec. of State Corey Stapleton. Other potential Republican candidates include former UN Amb. John Bolton. Gov. Doug Burgum, R-NC, former Gov. Chris Christie, R-NJ, former Vice President Mike Pence, former U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-SC, Gov. Chris Sununu, R-NH. U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis, R-NC, and Gov. Glenn Youngkin, R-Va.
