The DNC is digging within the grime 20 potential 2024 candidates together with Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley and Mike Lindell
After Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney in 2012, the Democrats began planning the next election in 2016. At the time, they couldn't have imagined going up against a failed businessman and reality TV star.
The party is pulling out all the stops for its opposition research in 2024. Of course, Trump could be the candidate again. To do this, however, he would have to overcome various hurdles.
The DNC is looking at around 20 candidates. There are favorites in the group like Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley. But by leaving no stone unturned, the Democrats are even looking at wildcard candidates like My Pillow Guy and Mike Lindell.
The Hill reports: “T.The DNC also has a team that is stepping up its fundraising and organizing activities for both mid-term 2022 and the 2024 cycle. “The operation is being led by Jen O'Malley Dillon, who successfully ran Biden's 2020 presidential campaign.
It's no surprise the party is looking at DeSantis and Haley. This duo, along with Mike Pence, would make current favorites for the seat, although some polls show Donald Trump Jr. as a name to look out for.
Lindell is a bit of a right-field contender. But Politico reports: "DNC officials believe social media has lowered the barrier to entry for presidential candidates and that there will be a crowded field again if Trump doesn't run. "
