Former President Trump’s legal obligations are becoming increasingly intertwined with his political aspirations, with court dates threatening to split his time and attention in the heart of the 2024 presidential race.

But with Trump’s first trial scheduled for the day before Super Tuesday, there is also the question of whether the former president may have effectively clinched the Republican nomination by the time his court dates begin in earnest.

“We’re at a different point now because people know this about him. The question will be what new information about him that is going to be relevant to people’s decision is going to be imparted,” Grant Reeher, director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute, says in The Hill article, “Why Trump’s court dates may not impact his primary success.”

Reeher was also quoted in the Washington Examiner article, “Trump still dominates primary race after big week mugging for the cameras.”

"I do think there's plenty of time still here for someone to emerge as the alternative to him. And it doesn't look like it's going to be Ron DeSantis," says Reeher. "But, there's a big but here, and that is that the field will have to winnow itself pretty quickly earlier on in the process than it normally would need to."
