2024: Who’s Running for President?

This is the slowest start to a presidential campain race in recent memory. According to the NY Times, “the field for the 2024 campaign is starting out small and looks like it will be headlined by the same two aging men who ran in the general election last time: President Biden and former President Donald J. Trump.” Not many other candidates have entered the race. 

Back in November, former president Donald Trump announced in a press conference held at Mar-a-Lago, his estate in Florida, that he aims to be elected for another term as U.S. president in the 2024 election. This will not be my campaign, this will be our campaign all together,” Trump said in his speech. 

Trump is no longer the unifying face of the Republican party, no longer the name voters hope to see on their ballots. As Saul Anuzis, former chair of the Michigan Republican Party, put it, “The excitement’s just not there.” 

So, who is running for President in 2024? 

In February, “as Democratic National Committee members gathered in Philadelphia for their winter meeting…nearly all have come to the same conclusion: It’s Biden or bust.” Democrats are almost universally unwilling to challenge their own incumbent so long as he seems likely to run, no matter their misgivings.
