Republican Presidential Primary Could Soon Be Crowded

  • Nikki Haley jumped into the race the other day, and last night tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy jumped into the race.
  • Each of these other candidates is an impressive person with appealing qualities, but neither strikes me as a serious threat to the frontrunners. Former Governor Larry Hogan, of course, might upend the standings in the race should he decide to jump in, because as the twice-elected and surprisingly popular governor of Maryland he of course would light the world on fire.
  • Both Trump and DeSantis are also leaders in most polls, with DeSantis still silent on a run. Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence have also long been rumored as potential candidates.
