Ca. Gov. Newsom is the first Governor to say Donald Trump is not eligible for future election

Ca. Gov. Gavin Newsom is the first Governor to say Donald Trump is not eligible for future presidential elections & has asked the California's State Assembly to pass a bill that will remove Trumps name on any future ballots.

Also, New Hampshire Republican Governor Chris Sununu stated in an op-ed titled "If Republicans Narrow the Field, We Will Beat Trump" that the 2024 GOP presidential primary needs a smaller candidate pool to secure victory over former President Donald Trump and reclaim the White House.

So the full court press is on to get rid of the frontrunner for the GOP nomination. This should surprise no one, as this was always on the BINGO card. If the people wouldn't get rid of him, we'll do it for them.

Governor Sununu also emphasized the urgency for candidates to assess their potential and step aside if they fail to gain momentum after the upcoming primary debates. To effectively challenge Trump's dominance, Sununu advised candidates not to shy away from confronting him during the debates.

Contrary to Sununu's counsel, a recent CBS News/YouGov poll revealed that the majority of likely GOP primary voters believe candidates should focus on promoting their own qualifications rather than criticizing Trump. Nevertheless, Sununu warned that if Trump becomes the Republican nominee in 2024, it could result in detrimental losses for the party as indicated by a recent Associated Press poll.

Recognizing the significance of leadership within the Republican Party, Sununu urged influential figures such as governors, senators, donors, and media influencers to take responsibility and assist in narrowing down the candidate field.

According to his proposal, candidates who do not qualify for the initial two debates must withdraw from the race, and those polling in the low single digits should exit the field by Christmas. With the first GOP presidential nominating race scheduled for January 15 in Iowa, only Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy currently maintain an average of more than 5% support in primary polls, based on data from FiveThirtyEight.
