‘Where do I begin?” That was U.S. Sen. Todd Young’s response to a Capitol Hill reporter’s question after he became the first current elected Hoosier Republican officeholder to say he will not support Donald Trump’s presidential renomination in 2024.

Sen. Young’s tipping point appears to be related to the Russia-Ukraine war. It came just hours after Trump’s May 11 CNN Town Hall in which moderator Kaitlan Collins pressed him on whether he wanted Ukraine or the Russians to win in the brutal 15-month war. Pressed by Collins on who he wanted to win, Trump said, “I don’t think in terms of winning and losing.”
