As former President Donald Trump remains the only major candidate to have declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, several other prospective candidates have emerged with varying levels of seriousness in their intentions to run, but one Republican governor appears to be looking into a possible bid for the GOP nomination.
Governor Chris Sununu of New Hampshire stated Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," that he is considering a bid for president in 2024, but adds that he does not "really have a timeline" for when he would declare his candidacy if he ever officially does.
“I really don’t have a timeline. I’m spending a lot of time naturally trying to grow the party as Republicans, talk to independents, talk to the next generation of potential Republican voters that right now no one is really reaching out to,” Sununu said.
After easily winning reelection for a fourth term, Sununu has maintained fairly steady criticisms of Trump after candidates backed by the former president did not fair well in the midterm elections. Speaking about his home state, Sununu says that for a president to win, they will have to go "person to person," also stating that "you got to come and earn it.'
Sununu is one of several possible candidates that have polled poorly thus far in a hypothetical Republican presidential primary, with the only serious challenge to Trump at this point in the election cycle being Ron DeSantis, though polling has swung back and forth as to who would hold the upper hand in that matchup.
