A Trump Mega Donor just switched to back Governor Ron DeSantis for the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary. Hal Lambert told Fox Business that he believes Trump simply can’t win the general against Biden because he’s too divisive.
Here’s more via Daily Wire:
A Republican megadonor and one-time supporter of former President Donald Trump has flipped to supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for president, saying that he believes the former president should drop out of the race.
Hal Lambert, founder and CEO of Point Bridge Capital and creator of MAGA EFT, told Fox Business on Tuesday that he does not believe Trump can win in the 2024 general election.
“I don’t think he can win the general,” he said. “There’s states that matter, and we all know what those are. It’s going to be things like Nevada and Arizona and Virginia, Wisconsin. I don’t see Trump winning any of those states. And so we can’t win if we don’t win those states.”
“It’s time to move on to the next generation,” he continued. “And Governor DeSantis is a vision forward versus hashing out things from the past. I think it would be a moratorium on Biden’s presidency — or a referendum, I should say, versus a referendum on Trump.”
Lambert said that voters do not want another nine months of what they saw Trump deliver during his recent town hall event on CNN.
“We want what Governor DeSantis offers, which is a vision forward, not looking back,” he said.
Lambert said that he only went public with his support of DeSantis this week and that he’s “going to do everything I can to help Governor DeSantis win.”
This is great news for DeSantis and I expect many more will do the same as Lambert.

These are the worst of the ones I found, but it didn’t take much looking to find them. Geez.
