Republican strategist and former vice chair of the Maryland Republican Party Eugene Craig discusses former President Donald Trump continuing to sweep caucuses and primaries ahead of Super Tuesday this week, whether former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley winning the District of Columbia GOP primary will help or hinder her, continued concerns about President Joe Biden’s mental acuity, whether California Governor Gavin Newsom will be brought in by the Democrats to save themselves in November, the race to replace outgoing Senate GOP head Mitch McConnell, and the influence the pro-Israel lobby will have in the 2024 election.
