Donald Trump is not only dominating polling but also endorsements.

Senator John Barrasso, the number three Senate Republican, endorsed Trump Tuesday night.

Politico reported:

Sen. John Barrasso, the No. 3 Senate Republican, endorsed former President Donald Trump on Tuesday, becoming the highest-ranking GOP senator to support Trump’s 2024 bid.

“If you want to get the country back on track, which is what I want to do, we need a strong, Republican, conservative House and Senate. And we need Donald Trump back in the White House,” Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday night.

Barraso’s backing for Trump is a significant development in the Senate GOP. For one, Barrasso becomes only the second member of elected leadership to back Trump; campaign chief Steve Daines (R-Mont.) backed Trump last year, in part to help coordinate candidate recruitment in key Senate races.

The Senate Republican Conference chair’s endorsement of the former president also officially establishes him as the most Trump-friendly GOP senior Republican in a conference that will have a new leader in the coming years. Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.), former Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Barrasso are seen within the Senate GOP as the favorites to succeed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Barrasso would be the 20th Senate Republican to endorse Donald Trump.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Barrasso’s Tuesday evening announcement, which came during a Fox News appearance, makes him the 20th GOP senator to endorse Trump in the Republican primary. As the No. 3 Senate Republican in his capacity as conference chairman, Barrasso is the most senior endorsement Trump has secured in the upper chamber.

In addition to Barrasso and Daines, the GOP senators who have endorsed Trump are Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Mike Braun (R-IN), Katie Britt (R-AL), Ted Budd (R-NC), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), Josh Hawley (R-MO), John Hoeven (R-ND), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), Eric Schmitt (R-MO), Rick Scott (R-FL), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), J.D. Vance (R-OH), and Roger Wicker (R-MS).

In total, that makes up 20 of the 49 Republicans in the Senate.

Trump thanked him for his endorsement.
