Reacting on Monday to being passed over for a significant endorsement by his former boss, a former Trump official is vying for the Senate in Nevada, a critical swing state.

Dr. David Gunter, the former U.S. S. ambassador to Iceland, was hoping to get support from former President Trump in his effort to turn Nevada red, but his main rival, former U.S. S. Captain of the Army. Sam Brown, on Sunday night.

The candidates, along with their respective entourages close to Trump, had been battling for weeks behind closed doors to gain the support of the former president.

“The American people lose, money benefits Mitch McConnell. After hearing about the endorsement, Gunter told Fox News Digital, “Rinse and repeat.” This was a blatant jab at national Republicans who have continued to support Brown’s candidacy.

Later, Gunter asserted in an early Monday X post that the endorsement hinged on a “big check,” a claim that was brushed off as an “unglued” jab at Trump by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

“Democrat Jeff Gunter of California lost it all when President Trump praised war hero Sam Brown. “NRSC communications director Mike Berg told Fox that Gunter used Twitter to falsely disparage President Trump and sounds more like Adam Schiff than a conservative.”.

Gunter’s accusations of “pay for play” against the former president drew criticism from some close to Trump, who urged him to remove the post.

stated nothing negative about President Trump. Will never waver in his support for him. His “top advisers,” however, need to come clean,” Gunter replied in a different post.

Shortly before Trump declared his support for Brown on Truth Social, Gunter was interviewed by Fox News Digital. Citing internal polling that he claimed showed him either tied or ahead of Brown, he expressed confidence ahead of Tuesday’s primary.

“The rumor is that we’re working hard, having a great time, and we’re doing great,” Gunter remarked. As the genuine 110% Trump supporter and MAGA candidate, we are therefore extremely confident that we will restore Nevada to its former glory. “.”.

The campaign for Brown has also released internal polls, but these indicate that Brown has a sizable lead over Gunter, who claims he is the only candidate capable of unseating Democratic incumbent Sen. Jacky Rosen during the general election.

In his first rally since the New York conviction, Trump blasts up the fiery swing state crowd.

Although a New York Times poll conducted last month showed Brown and Rosen tied at 41% each, with a portion of voters still undecided, Gunter cited polls that showed Rosen leading Brown. On a hypothetical matchup between Gunter and Rosen, not much independent polling has been conducted.

If you enjoy Mitch McConnell and Nikki Haley, then perhaps you’ll enjoy Sam Brown as well. I am the real MAGA candidate, Gunter declared. “However, if you support America First and adore Donald Trump, know that I once worked for him. I was his u. S. ambassador, and I’m your man because I live up to my values. And for good reason—the great state of Nevada is seeing such rapid growth and success. “.”.

In addition to his “loyalty” to Trump, Gunter said that voters who are still unsure about their choice should take into account his background as an ambassador and physician.

Prior to Tuesday’s primary, Fox News Digital made multiple attempts to speak with Brown; however, at the time this article was published, his campaign had not committed to an interview.

It is anticipated that Rosen will win her primary with ease on Tuesday. In the general election, she will probably run against either Gunter or Brown.

Seeking to wrest back control of the Senate from Democrats, who currently hold a razor-thin 51-49 majority, Republicans see Nevada as one of their best flip opportunities.
