Ted Cruz confirms he’s considering 2024 presidential run

Because Democrats have been such a disaster, Republicans are uniquely poised going into the 2024 presidential election. Many are already speculating who will be at the top of the ticket and planning accordingly.

Sen. Ted Cruz said he’s “absolutely” considering a presidential run in 2024 and is ready to once again face off against former President Donald Trump in the primaries, Breitbart reported. The Texas Republican sees his 2016 “runner-up position” as a logical springboard for a successful bid.

“You know, I ran in 2016,” Cruz told Brilyn Hollyhand in an exclusive for the Truth Gazette. “It was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life,” Cruz said.

“We had a very crowded field,” the lawmaker added. “We had 17 candidates in the race — a very strong field. And I ended up placing second,” Cruz pointed out.

“There’s a reason historically that the runner-up is almost always the next nominee,” Cruz continued. “And that’s been true going back to Nixon or Reagan or McCain or Romney that has played out repeatedly. You come in with just an enormous base of support.”

Though both Trump and Cruz made it to the top of the heap in 2016, the field going forward will look very different than it did then. They may have to face a most formidable opponent in Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis if he decides to run.

Though DeSantis hasn’t announced a 2024 bid, a recent Harris/Harvard CAPS poll published in Newsweek has the governor crushing all other Republicans including Cruz, though Trump was not included as a choice. What DeSantis has in his favor over Trump is that he’s confrontational with the media and unapologetically conservative without the other baggage Trump has.

Much can happen over the next couple of years, so it’s hard to predict who will rise to the top by then. However, what is clear is that Democrats are having a disastrous impact on the country, and the next Republican presidential nominee could very well take the White House — no matter who it is.
