The Republican party is on fire right now with a fiery lineup of potential candidates for the 2024 election. We haven’t even reached the end of the year and speculation has already commenced as to who may vie for the nomination. Adding fuel to the fire are rumors of two popular figures from opposite coasts ready to throw their hats in the ring. All eyes are fixed on these men, wondering just who they might be? Let’s dive in!
South Carolina senator Tim Scott and Strive Asset Management Executive Chairman Vivek Ramaswamy have both recently indicated their desire to enter the Republican race for the 2024 presidential election. In a time when party lines seem less definitive than ever, the entry of two relatively familiar faces is stirring up quite an interesting buzz in conservative circles across the nation. Ramaswamy’s background in biotechnology and Scott’s record of bipartisanship are proving to be an attractive leadership quality. It will be interesting to see what happens when these two announce. For now, all eyes are on the White House and the resident that occupies it.
We love Trump reports, Tim Scott, a senator from South Carolina, is reportedly preparing to run as a presidential candidate in 2024, according to sources familiar with the matter.
NewsNation reported on the matter.
Social media users reacted violently to the news that Tim Scott was considering a presidential run.
Lauren Loomer tweeted: JUST IN: “GOP Senator Tim Scott is preparing to launch a run for President in 2024. Another backstabber!”
Fox News contributor Leo Terrell said, “Just like @NikkiHaley, #TimScott is making a big mistake running against President Trump! South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott is taking steps to run for president, adding to the stable of Republicans looking to wrest the party mantle from former President Trump.
However, Tim Scott doesn’t seem to be the only one thinking of throwing their hat into the ring
Daily Wire reports, Vivek Ramaswamy, a former biotechnology executive and a leading opponent of ESG investments, teased a presidential run on Monday.
Reports from POLITICO indicate that the business leader is gaining name recognition in Idaho, an important Republican primary state. It is expected that Vivek Ramaswamy will enter a Republican primary field that includes former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Ramaswamy appeared to confirm his presidential ambitions Monday on social media, retweeting the Politico story and commenting “stay tuned.”
He has reportedly assembled a campaign team of nearly 20 people: Kathy Barnette, former Pennsylvania Senate primary candidate, will lead his potential grassroots efforts, and Tricia McLaughlin, who led communications for Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, will serve as his press secretary.
Angle: It’s only the beginning of what could be a historic election year and the Republican line-up looks to set the stage for a truly unforgettable race. Naming Trump, DeSantis, Haley, Scott, Pompeo, and Vivek Ramaswamy as potential primary candidates is fairly impressive – especially in comparison to the questionable competitors on the other side. Nevertheless, one individual remains above the rest; he’s proven himself time and time again with this track record of success. We all know who that is. Whoever comes out on top will surely have their work cut out for them.
Let’s continue this conversation, in the comments below.
