‘It isn’t because I want to derail Trump or DeSantis or anybody else’
By Joe Kovacs
The 2024 presidential race could soon be getting more interesting, especially on the Republican side as a conservative champion is seriously considering tossing his hat in the ring.
It is Larry Elder, the bestselling author, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host and WND columnist, who tried unsuccessfully to become California’s governor in its recent recall attempt of Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Elder was being interviewed on SiriusXM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” on Monday when he discussed the possibility.
“Wait a minute,” said Kelly. “You just slipped a little news in there. Are you actually thinking about running for president?”
“Yes, I am,” Elder responded.
“I’m going to probably announce if I decide to do it at the end of March, early April. I’ve been to Iowa about four or five times the last month. I’ve been to New Hampshire.
“I met a lot of people. I’m meeting with donors. I am really strongly giving it consideration. It isn’t because I want to derail Trump or DeSantis or anybody else who decides to run.”
Former President Donald Trump has already announced his candidacy for 2024. Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has not, though many political observers believe he might jump in.
