Kristi Noem says Republicans’ job “is not just to talk to people who love Trump or hate Trump”

Governor Kristi Noem spoke to a reporter while at the Republican Governors Association today and echoed what many Republicans are thinking. That the Republican Party is more than just Donald Trump.

Noem told The New York Times on Wednesday that she didn’t think the former president, who filed paperwork Tuesday for another White House run, offered the “best chance” for the Republican Party in 2024.

“If we narrow our focus there, then we’re not talking to every single American. Our job is not just to talk to people who love Trump or hate Trump. Our job is to talk to every single American,” Noem told the Times while she was in Florida for the Republican Governor’s Association meeting.

  1. It seems the majority of America doesn’t want to buy what the GOP is selling. New leadership probably won’t change that.

  2. It seems to me this interview with Corey L sitting in the room coincides nicely with the recent string of mega donors bailing on trump. Corey has always been Kristi’s access to the billionaire donor network. That pool has dried up for trump it seems, so it’s time to create some distance to help her own fundraiser options.

    With Corey it’s about the money. The rube network of small donors isn’t what he’s after.

    1. The departure of a 100k “megadonor” doesn’t signal anything two years out.

      Because we can’t trust voting machines, how do we really know what the majority of America wants?

      Even with purported issues, however, are you aware that the GOP won the popular vote of this last midterm?

      Lastly, I’ll appeal to your common sense. Can we assume the majority of citizens of the US want to put America First? If so, why would we think America first candidates would be unpopular? If you think the majority of US Citizens don’t want to put America First, you have some splainin’ to do, Lucy.

  3. This is a big long-term miscalculation.

    But a statement like that can be rolled back in the presence of new information and evidence.

    We have a war horse.

    Let’s use him for …


  4. “My plans are to stay here for four years. Absolutely,” Noem said. “That’s what I want to do. Stay home here in South Dakota. That’s why I wake up every day blessed to be here.” (Kelo News Oct 12, 2022)

    That was just ONE MONTH AGO. Did you believe her? Well… then ask yourself why political advisor Corey Lewandowski was at her side during this interview? She can’t run for governor again.

    Believe her if you want. I stopped making that mistake a long time ago.

  5. Kristi Noem/Tulsi Gabbard 2024! Grifting is as American as baseball, Apple Pie and Chevrolet.

  6. don’t worry, if the party tries to be about something other than trump, he’ll shut that crap down in a hurry.

  7. “our job is to talk to every single american.” talk WITH them. listen TO them. part of the equation is missing if you’re not taking input while you give it.
