Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told reporters Wednesday that she will not endorse Donald Trump for president in 2024 even if he wins the GOP nomination for president.
Asked if she sees herself endorsing the former president, Collin’s told reporters: “I do not at this point, no.”
Collins added that she didn’t endorse any of the Republican candidates at the outset because she knows all of them personally, and “didn’t want to choose among them.”
She did however expressed optimism about Haley despite her 11 point loss to Trump in the New Hampshire GOP primary Tuesday night.
“I’m glad to hear last night that Nikki Haley is determined to stay in,” she said. “And I think the more people see of her, particularly since she appears to be the only alternative to Donald Trump right now, the more impressed that they will be.”
Collins remarks come as Republican senators are falling in line and endorsing Trump. Sens. John Cornyn (Texas) and Deb Fisher (Neb.) endorsed the former president Tuesday after his victory in New Hampshire.
