The Presidential Election of 2020 is upon us in 100 days, but, believe it or not, there are hints already of who might run for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024, whether or not Donald Trump wins reelection.
Likely, there might be someone not talked about yet, who emerges as a serious contender, who has served, or will serve, in the US Senate or a state Governorship.
So what is being discussed here is highly speculative, but let me make it clear: The field is wide open.
So here goes, a list of 17 potential contenders:
if Donald Trump loses election, he would be eligible to run again in 2024, and try to match Grover Cleveland in being President, losing, and then contending again.
Additionally, his son, Donald Jr., seems to have Presidential ambitions, although the level of his competence and intellect is highly doubtful.
Also, Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, is also rumored to be thinking of running, but only if Donald Jr, steps aside, but everyone knows that the President favors his daughter over his other children.
Once we get past the Trump family, here is a list of 14 other potential contenders in no special order:
Vice President or former Vice President Mike Pence of Indiana
Former South Carolina Governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida
Senator Rick Scott of Florida
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas
Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky
Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska
Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas
Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri
Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida
Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland
Governor Charlie Baker of Massachusetts
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of Kansas
And we can finish with, believe it or not, Fox News Talk Show Host Tucker Carlson!
