Top Arizona Republican Refuses to Support Trump in ’24

Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers (R), who appeared as a witness before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack, said he plans to support a candidate other than former President Trump in the 2024 Republican presidential primaries if Trump runs.

Bowers testified before the Jan. 6 select committee last month on Trump’s efforts to push state legislators to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Arizona. During his testimony, Bowers said he received calls from Trump and attorney Rudy Giuliani urging him to support efforts to overturn the results. He also denied Trump’s claim that Bowers told him he won the election in the state.

Bowers told Deseret News in an interview published on Sunday that he does not want to have to consider voting for Trump if he is the Republican nominee in 2024, saying he does not know what he would do if Trump wins the nomination.

He said he is not “inclined” to support Trump because he does not believe Trump represents his party or its morals or platforms.
