Trump's campaign is vying for state GOP delegates in the 2024 nomination

A primary priority for the staff of former President Donald Trump's campaign in the run-up to the nominating convention of the Republican National Committee in 2024 has been the cultivation of relationships with prospective state delegates and leadership within state parties.

Trump has a significant advantage over the other candidates in the Republican primary, according to a report by The Washington Examiner.

Nevertheless, according to the Associated Press, his staff has been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure that even if the former president does not have that advantage, they would still be able to secure the nomination.

“We are aggressive on every level and on every front,” senior adviser Chris LaCivita said of the campaign. “We don’t let anything stand a chance.”

The fact that Trump and his associates have already navigated the processes in 2016 and 2020 gives them a distinct edge.

In addition to this, they have collaborated with individual states to alter the processes that will be used for the nomination of candidates in upcoming elections.

According to LaCivita, "From a tactical perspective, where we are today is leaps and bounds better than where the campaign, or a campaign similar to the campaign, was in 2016."

Rather than using primaries, a number of states have decided to switch to selecting candidates through caucuses. Because of his close network of associates and the widespread support he enjoys among grassroots activists, this is likely to be to the former president's advantage.

For example, in the state of Michigan, the party will now award 16 of the state's 55 delegates to the victor of the primary in February, while the remaining 39 will be determined in caucus meetings held behind closed doors.

This election cycle, the Idaho Republican Party decided to hold their caucuses earlier in the month of March instead. However, the Nevada Republican Party's attempts to transition to a caucus system have been met with resistance.

Following the results of the election in 2020, the state legislature enacted a bill that mandated all major political parties hold primary elections.

At this time, the state Republican Party is taking legal action so that they can opt out of participating in the primary election and instead use the caucus system.

According to the article, the campaign for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, is also keeping an eye on potential delegates.

“They’re surrogates for us on the ground,” DeSantis political director Sam Cooper said of state lawmakers they have been working with. “But also, they’re close to the process.”

To ensure that their plans for the elections in 2024 are complete and ready to be submitted to the national party, the states have until October.
