(ReliableNews.org) – Donald Trump has been hinting around about a possible run for president in 2024. In February, he appeared at the annual CPAC meeting and predicted a “Republican president will make a triumphant return to the White House,” and recently said he would make a final decision about running after the 2022 midterms.
However, as Fox News reported on March 20, he’s not the only Republican interested in the party’s nomination. Potential rivals have already begun making plans to visit Iowa, indicating their interest in pursuing the White House in 2024.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Senators Rick Scott (R-FL) and Tim Scott (R-SC) are all heading to Iowa the next few weeks marking the first visits to the state by the White House hopefuls. Pompeo’s trip includes a visit to the Westside Conservative Club Friday morning, March 26. Rick Scott and Tim Scott are both slated to attend Iowa GOP events in April.
Iowa’s GOP chair, Jeff Kaufmann, commented on the idea of increased visits to the state by potential 2024 hopefuls, telling Fox News “there’s a lot more interest” in Iowa than “meets the eye.”
Conventional wisdom indicates the possibility of another Trump run for president could limit the field of other Republican contenders. However, it looks like the 2024 Republican primaries could end up with numerous exciting hopefuls.
