I get tired of those who say Donald Trump is gonna co-op the 2024 Republican Presidential nomination ….
From where I stand?
THAT is simply NOT gonna happen…
The list of Republicans lining up to run grows by the week….
Tom Cotton joins the list….
Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton huddled with two dozen of his top donors Tuesday morning to describe his planning for a potential 2024 White House campaign, telling them a comeback bid by former President Donald Trump wouldn’t deter him from running.
During the meeting at the Hay-Adams hotel in Washington, which was described by two attendees, Cotton said he was prepared to run and detailed the work he’s done to develop an infrastructure for a national campaign. He emphasized that he wouldn’t defer to any other would-be candidates — including Trump — and said he planned to make a final decision on whether to run after this year’s midterm election…..
The gathering is the latest move in an intensifying competition among potential candidates to court major donors, with the midterm election just months away.
South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, for example, has established an allied super PAC that has drawn large contributions from the likes of tech giant Larry Ellison and Las Vegas billionaire Steve Wynn. DeSantis has been crisscrossing the country to raise money for his 2022 reelection bid, developing relationships with givers who could form the foundation of a financial network for a national campaign.
And former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley has set up a political action committee that has received checks from major donors like New York hedge fund manager Paul Singer.
