PIERRE, S.D.–Governor Kristi Noem has been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump in the race for president this year, and she was quick to congratulate him following his caucus victory in Iowa Monday night.
In a statement, Governor Noem said, “Iowa spoke loud and clear. President Trump has won overwhelmingly. He got more votes than all the other candidates COMBINED. It’s time to unite the Republican party. We need to put all our time, treasure, and talents into defeating Joe Biden and taking our country back – NOT figuring out who is in 2nd place.”
Noem campaigned for Trump in Iowa recently, and believes the former president will have the Republican nomination wrapped up by the time the South Carolina Republican Primary is held in just over a month….
Governor Noem’s name has been frequently mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick by Trump.
Iowa caucus results:
Donald Trump 51%
Ron DeSantis 21.2%
Nikki Haley 19.1%
Vivek Ramaswamy 7.7%
