About Trump's GOP opponents
Thought for the day
So far, it looks like several candidates appear ready to take the plunge and challenge Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
They are, in no particular order or preference, Sen. Tim Scott of So. Carolina, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, and former So. Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (who was first to launch her campaign months ago). My guess is they all smell blood in the choppy waters that might drown Trump, so it's time to get busy.
Besides former VP Mike Pence, two other potential candidates -- former Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and current Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire -- still are on the sidelines. Assuming one or more of them enters the race, it looks like next year's primary season could be another crowded affair. That's good news for me as a writer, but not good news for most of these candidates. Despite his many legal woes, 45 holds a commanding lead over all of his current or prospective rivals.
I'm not sure which of Trump's opponents can beat him, but I do know this: Every one of them needs to raise $50-$100 million fast. Those that do, may have a chance. Those that don't, it's only a matter of time before they'll have to drop out. Anyone have thoughts about what Liz Cheney might do next year?
