The Lt. Governor of Virginia, Winsome Sears, was just on with Neil Cavuto and said there’s no way she can support Trump if he runs in 2024.
She suggested that voters have now spoken and it’s time to move on to new leadership.
Here’s the video:

What she said:
SEARS: When we look at the mission…the voters have spoken. And they’ve said that they want a different leader. A true leader understands when they have become a liability. A true leader understands that it’s time to step off the stage. The voters have give us that very clear message.
CAVUTO: Does that apply in the Republican Party to Donald Trump, that it’s time to step off the stage?
SEARS: Yes. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Indeed, that’s where we are today. …The voters are saying enough is enough.
CAVUTO: If some in the party want to move on, such as yourself…but Donald Trump still makes a speech next week that he wants to run for president, what would you think about that?
SEARS: I could not support him. I just couldn’t because we have seen, for example, in those states where he has endorsed the candidates, in fact Republicans on the same ticket who he did not endorse overperformed whereas his candidates totally underperformed by as much as 10 points. We have a clear mission and it is time to move on.
Sears is already being accused of stabbing Trump in the back by his hardcore supporters, namely Seb Gorka:

The responses to his tweet are quite mixed, with some agreeing with him and others saying she’s right. In fact upon a cursory glance it appears there’s more of the latter than the former.
