The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.
Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.
Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.
Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

The United Methodist Church continues to shrink
VERBATIM: Incredibly, more than 1,800 more congregations quit the denomination in 2022 — this after years of churches leaving over the on-going dispute around issues of homosexuality. There was an acceleration last year, however, likely due to the fact that UMC leaders are apparently ready to approve a formal split. The exodus is powered primarily by conservative churches that oppose the UMC’s embrace of same-sex marriage and homosexual ordination. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
