Former CIA Official Frustrated Trump is the GOP Presidential Favorite, Weighs Entering Race

The Deep State is outraged Donald Trump is the overwhelming favorite to win the GOP nominee in the 2024 presidential election.

A former CIA official has expressed his outrage that nobody seems capable of defeating Trump in the 2024 GOP primary.

Will Hurd, a former CIA clandestine officer and Republican congressman, is considering launching a presidential bid himself.

“I’ve served my country before, and I won’t rule out the opportunity to do it again,” Hurd said.

The Post Millennial reported:

On Wednesday, Hurd took particular aim at Donald Trump, lamenting the fact that none of the former president’s competitors posed a significant threat to him becoming the nominee again in 2024.

“The GOP will continue to lose to Democrats if Donald Trump is the nominee,” Hurd told Fox News at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Spring Kick-off. “No one is taking on Trump effectively, or presenting a vision for the future.”

Hurd suggested that the GOP “has an opportunity in 2024,” adding that the party would only succeed if it ran candidates who “can appeal to independents and that can appeal to Democrats.” He pointed out that many who wouldn’t typically vote Republican could potentially swing red “because everybody thinks the country is on the wrong track.”

Fox News added:

Hurd grabbed national attention last spring during a well-publicized book tour for “American Reboot: An Idealist’s Guide to Getting Big Things Done.” In his book, Hurd urged his party to rethink its style of politics and offered ideas to reform America’s political system and keep the nation competitive against China and other powers.

In November, the day after an expected red wave turned into a trickle in the midterm elections, Hurd posted an 800-word essay encouraging Americans who were upset with the choice of candidates from the two major parties to become more involved in primary elections — which are often dominated by Democratic and Republican base voters.

“One of the things that we have to recognize, and the Republican Party needs to come to grips with is that we’ve been losing. I don’t have to tell you that seven out of the eight last popular elections were lost by Republicans. We lost the House in 2018. We lost the Senate and the White House in 2020. We did not take the House back by the margin we should have in 2022,” Hurd stressed in a recent interview with Fox News Digital in Iowa, the state that leads off the GOP primary and caucus schedule.
