Team Trump has revealed a fascinating list of who is on its new “Texas Leadership Team” — but it’s the names that aren’t on the list that are raising eyebrows.

“President Donald J. Trump visits Waco, Texas on Saturday to hold the first rally of his 2024 Presidential campaign,” the statement began. “At the rally, he will announce his initial Texas Leadership Team of statewide and federal elected officials from across Texas. Coupled with President Trump’s overwhelming support from grassroots activists, his campaign is uniquely positioned to win the 2024 Texas Republican Presidential Primary.”
The message then actually lists that initial team out, and it certainly includes some notable names.
However, just as fascinating for Twitter users responding to Harrington was about who wasn’t on that list. Four names in particular — of some rather heavy hitters — were noticeably absent.
Now, there has been absolutely no indication how this team was assembled and who was and wasn’t asked.
Conversely, there’s been no indication if invitations were sent to Abbott, Cruz, Crenshaw or Roy or, perhaps, if they declined those invites.
What is certain is that this “Texas Leadership Team” will be working with an impassioned base in the Lone Star State, at least if Trump’s rally in Waco is any indication.
Below, you can watch KRIV’s coverage of Trump’s rally (Trump supporters may see some symbolism in terms of who the station cut away from to cover the Waco rally):
While Trump has yet to provide more detail on what exactly his “Texas Leadership Team” will be managing, given that this announcement was attached to his official campaign trail, one can imagine that he will have leadership teams in other states, as well.
If that is indeed the case, those leadership teams may very well face the same scrutiny that Texas’ did.
