These are the latest Republicans lining up to challenge Trump in 2024

Feb 27, 2023

Donald Trump lost his bid for a second term in the White House in 2020 in a very close and controversial election.

The former President wasted little time in announcing a third run for the Oval Office in 2024.

But he won’t be alone and these are the latest Republicans lining up to challenge Trump in 2024.

More than a two-man race?

It’s already looking like the Republican primaries in 2024 will feature a crowded field.

Former President Donald Trump announced his third Presidential run just one week after the disappointing 2022 Midterm elections.

The other frontrunner candidate, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, said he has “unfinished business” in the state legislature and won’t make a decision on a national campaign until May at the earliest.

However, his team already started interviewing potential staff and courting donors.

Last week, Nikki Haley threw her hat in the ring for the GOP nomination for President in 2024 and will challenge her former boss.

Cranston, Rhode Island Mayor Steve Laffey, Montana Secretary of State Corey Stapleton, and Michigan Businessman Perry Johnson have entered the race as well.

A new candidate announces

But a new candidate just emerged in an interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Conservative entrepreneur and author Vivek Ramaswamy told Carlson he’s launching a “cultural movement to revive American national identity.”

“America’s strength is not our diversity but the ideals that unify us across our differences,” Ramaswamy told Tucker. “Merit. Free speech. Truth. Accountability. I believe deep in my bones these ideals still exist, and I am running for President to revive them.”

The 37 year old Indian-American says he plans to follow Ron DeSantis’ lead and engage in the culture wars started by the radical Left.

“As U.S. President, I will end federally mandated affirmative action – full stop,” Ramaswamy said. “I will repeal Lyndon Johnson’s Executive Order 11246, which mandates race-based quotas. Every Republican since Johnson had the opportunity to do it. I’ll do it on Day 1 without apology.”

But the author of the very popular Woke Inc. book isn’t alone in wanting to take a run at a national campaign.

More candidates preparing to announce

Republican South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is touring the important GOP Presidential state of Iowa.

While spending time in the Hawkeye State, Scott is spreading a message of optimism for the country.

“I see 330 million Americans getting back to celebrating our shared blessings again, tolerating our differences again, and having each other’s backs again,” Scott said at Drake University. “This is what I see. A new American sunrise. Even brighter than before.”

Meanwhile, the old-school establishment members of the Grand Old Party are still looking for a RINO to throw their support behind.

Many are looking at former RINO Governor of Maryland, Larry Hogan, to fill that void.

And rumors are that Hogan is strongly considering making his announcement in the near future.

Other potential candidates

Rumors are swirling around Washington, D.C. about potential bids from several other contenders, including Greg Abbott of Texas, Kristi Noam of South Dakota, Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, and former RINO Governors Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas and Chris Christie of New Jersey.

Radio talk show host Larry Elder said he will make a decision before the end of next month on whether or not he wants to use the momentum he built running for Governor of California to make a bid for the White House.

And former Vice President Mike Pence, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former National Security Adviser Jon Bolton have publicly expressed interest in running for President.

Even the current Republican Mayor of Miami, Francis Suarez, has said he might run for the highest office in the land.

And there’s also RINO Liz Cheney, who has vowed to do whatever it takes to keep Trump from regaining the Presidency.

Take these names off the list

Some potential candidates have decided to opt out of challenging the 45th President of the United States.

Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, and Rick Scott of Florida have all said they will run for re-election.

America-First Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas also said rumors that he is running are not true.

However, even with those five members of the Upper Chamber removing their names from consideration, all signs point to a crowded GOP Primary field in 2024.
