With a growing list of Republicans lining up to join the 2024 Presidential nomination sweepstakes drawing?
Them splitting the vote just could give the heavily investigated ex-President a shot at the nomination…
Not a good look thinks some GOP US Senator’s afraid Joe Biden could wind up with a ‘lock’ on a second term and even damage to the party in down ballot races…..
They do NOT want the guy again….
Senate Republicans are growing increasingly worried that a crowded 2024 presidential field could ease the path for former President Trump to once again clinch the party’s nomination.
The field isn’t crowded yet, but former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s announcement Tuesday that she will run for the GOP nomination is seen as a harbinger of things to come.
A number of prominent former Trump administration officials, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former Vice President Mike Pence, are seen as likely to run. South Carolina itself may have an additional GOP candidate in Sen. Tim Scott.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is seen as a likely candidate, while possible entrants include New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin.
In a typical year there are also presidential candidates from the Senate, though 2024 may be an anomaly in this regard.
“Look, we were all concerned with the fact that we had 15 or 16 or 17 individuals vying for attention in the last one. We really don’t want to see that happen again,” Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) told The Hill. “We just don’t.”
Most GOP senators are staying neutral in the race so far and few are offering any public criticisms of Trump, or comments specifically stating that they do not want him as their party’s nominee.
But Republicans in the Senate are tired of losing, and many blame Trump for the party losing the House in 2018, losing the White House and Senate in 2020 and failing to pick up the Senate in 2022….
