The Associated Press reports that "after a trio of new announcements this week, the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential field is all but set." The question now is whether any of the nine notable candidates not named Donald Trump can keep him from his third consecutive GOP nomination.
The AP article goes on to say that "as of now, the former president is running in a field that features no fewer than nine high-profile challengers. They include Mike Pence, a former vice president; four current or former governors: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson; Nikki Haley, the former ambassador to the United Nations and also a former South Carolina governor; U.S. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina; biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy; and conservative talk show host Larry Elder, an unsuccessful candidate for California governor.
