Texas Sen. Ted Cruz recently sat down with the folks over at Newsmax where he stated that he’s thinking about making another run for the White House in 2024, but would also be happy to seek another term in the U.S. Senate.
Cruz made an appearance on “The Chris Salcedo Show” where he told guest host Tom Basile that he was “just considering it, just thinking about,” when he was asked about his plans for 2024.
Former President Donald Trump has yet to announce whether he will seek reelection after his 2020 loss to Democrat Joe Biden. A move by Trump to reclaim the Oval Office would certainly make the still popular former commander-in-chief the strong front-runner and force most serious candidates such as Cruz to sit out another four years.
But Cruz said his 2016 bid for the GOP presidential nomination, in which he was the last candidate standing against Trump, was “the most fun I’ve ever had in my life.”
“We came incredibly close,” the Texas senator said. “Had an incredible grassroots army of 326,000 volunteers nationwide. And so whether it is in the Senate, or whether it is in a presidential campaign, I am committed to fighting to defend free enterprise, to defend freedom and defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights.”
“Right now,” he continued, stating that the Senate is “fighting back on Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the incredible threat they’re opposing your liberty.”
There are several good options available for a potential presidential bid in 2024 if Trump decides not to run. One of the top choices for the Republican Party at the moment is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis has gained a lot of favor with the GOP due to how he has managed to handle the COVID pandemic without using ridiculous, oppressive measures and kept his state from going under economically.
