South Dakota Governor Kriti Noem, an outspoken supporter of former President Donald Trump, is likely a 2024 hopeful and she is making clear how she intends to position her potential campaign.
The South Dakota governor is set to attend a fundraising event at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Palm Beach resort, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO. The March 5 gathering, officially a fundraiser for Noem’s reelection campaign, is hosted by Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle.
“The invitation for the March 5 event says that to be a host requires a contribution of $4,000 per individual or $8,000 for a couple; that’ll get you a private roundtable discussion, photo-op and cocktail reception with Noem, Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. There’s a $1,000 minimum contribution merely to attend the fundraiser, which gets you into the cocktail party,” according to POLITICO.
Noem, who is up for reelection in 2022, actively support Trump while he was in office. She is often mentioned as a future presidential candidate, although she only polled at 1 percent in a recent POLITICO/Morning Consult survey. the South Dakota Republican, while in Florida, will also speak at the Conservative Policy Action Conference in Orlando. She is also slated to speak at a Republican National Committee donor summit in April, also in Palm Beach.
A spokesperson for Noem declined to comment. Trump Jr. referred questions to a representative, who declined to comment.
