Indiana GOP Sen. Todd Young renews his pledge not to support Trump in 2024

Indiana Republican Sen. Todd Young told the media on Friday, days after former President Trump’s commanding Super Tuesday performance, that he will not be endorsing the former president.

“Nothing’s changed from my standpoint,” Young told CNN after WWEV 44 News reported that Young will not support Trump due to the former president’s position and comments on Russia’s war in Ukraine.

“I trust the people I represent to make their own decisions on who they’re going to vote for.”

The outlet reported that Young has not decided who he will support in November.

Young’s position reiterates comments he has made in the past, including nine months ago when he said he doesn’t “intend to support him.”

“Where do I begin?” Young said when asked what the reasons for not supporting Trump are.

“I think President Trump’s judgment is wrong in this case,” Young previously said, referring to Trump declining to call Putin a “war criminal” in 2023. “Putin and his government have been engaged in war crimes. . . . That’s why I don’t intend to support him for the Republican nomination.”

Young took office in 2017 and was re-elected to the Senate in 2022, beating his Democratic challenger Thomas McDermott Jr. by about 20 points.

Young was one of only four GOP senators Trump did not endorse for re-election that year, according to Politico.
