Colorado Republican United States Senate candidate Joe O'Dea revealed on Sunday's edition of CNN's State of the Union that he will “actively campaign against” former President Donald Trump if he mounts a White House bid in 2024.

“I don’t think Donald Trump should run again,” O’Dea said. “I’m going to actively campaign against Donald Trump and make sure that we’ve got four or five really great Republicans right now" who could defeat Trump in the GOP primary.

“They can run and serve for eight years,” O’Dea predicted of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, ex-South Carolina governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina. “I’m going to do my job as a U.S. senator to make sure that they have good campaigns in the primary here so we have a good selection of candidates for 2024.”

On Monday, Trump attacked O'Dea on his Twitter copycat app Truth Social as a Republican In Name Only and proclaimed that his Make America Great Again movement only elects the best and brightest people.

"There’s this RINO character in the Great State of Colorado, Joe O’Dea, that is running against the incumbent Democrat for the United States Senate, who is having a good old time saying that he wants to 'distance' himself from President Trump, and other slightly nasty things. He should look at the Economy, Inflation, Energy Independence, defeating ISIS, the Strongest EVER Border, Great Trade Deals, & much more, before he speaks. MAGA doesn’t Vote for stupid people with big mouths," Trump wrote. "Good luck Joe!"
