Lara Trump, the newly appointed co-chair of the Republican National Committee and daughter-in-law to former President Donald Trump, delineated the pivotal battleground states that the RNC is prioritizing leading up to the 2024 general election. Speaking with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’s Mornings with Maria, Lara Trump emphasized that while every state holds significance in the electoral landscape, the RNC is particularly focused on Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin to bolster Trump’s reelection prospects.

“Every state matters obviously, but there are the key battleground states I think as Michael [Wheatly] mentioned that we really do have to focus on,” Lara Trump stated, underlining the critical role these states play in shaping the electoral outcome.

Pennsylvania, alongside four others, was singled out by Lara Trump as a primary target for the Trump campaign and the RNC this election cycle. “Pennsylvania is absolutely one of those states,” Lara Trump affirmed, indicating a strategic emphasis on key swing states crucial for securing victory.

Recent polling data indicates varying trends across these battleground states. While President Joe Biden leads Donald Trump by a significant margin in Pennsylvania, Trump maintains a narrow advantage over Biden in Arizona, the sole battleground state along the southern border. In Wisconsin, the race remains tight, with Biden holding a slight edge over Trump.

“Michigan, a state that was a huge win for Donald Trump in 2016, I think we can get back under our belt,” Lara Trump expressed optimism about Trump’s prospects in Michigan, citing polling data that shows Trump ahead of Biden by a modest margin.

Georgia emerged as another focal point for the Trump campaign, with Lara Trump highlighting efforts to secure substantial fundraising support from the state. Despite Biden’s narrow lead in current polling, Trump aims to regain ground in a state that saw a historic flip to blue in 2020.

As the Biden campaign eyes potential pickups, concerns about maintaining crucial battleground states loom large. While Lara Trump did not explicitly mention North Carolina or Nevada, both pivotal states in the electoral calculus, she reiterated the RNC’s unwavering focus on all battleground states to secure victory for Donald Trump.

“All the battleground states we’re highly focused on. There are 19 key counties around the country we must win in order to ensure Donald Trump becomes the 47th President,” Lara Trump affirmed, underscoring the strategic imperative of targeting key counties and battleground states pivotal for Trump’s electoral success.
