GOP Governor Reconsidering 2024 Presidential Bid

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin previously said he wasn’t considering a 2024 presidential run.

However, some of Youngkin's aides left the door open for his reconsideration.

It appears the Virginia governor is having second thoughts and may throw his name in the GOP presidential primary.

According to Axios, some anti-Trump GOP donors are nervous about the chances of Ron DeSantis and have encouraged Youngkin to enter the race.

"He's reconsidering," one source reportedly told the outlet.

"He'd be in his own lane: He's not never-Trump, and he's not Trump-light," the source reportedly added.

Axios reported:

A top Virginia GOP strategist told Axios there are "serious discussions happening on re-engaging in the presidential" race.

Youngkin faces high-stakes state legislative races in November. So an announcement about a presidential race is likely to wait until right after that, Republican sources said.

A senior Youngkin aide told Axios: "If the guy flips any seats at all, it's proof that his political machine is ready to go."

Speculation about Gov. Youngkin entering the 2024 presidential election heightened after he released this video last week.

If Youngkin throws his name in the race, he would join the growing GOP field that includes:  Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, Asa Hutchinson, and Larry Elder.

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott officially entered the race Monday and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will make his official announcement Wednesday on Twitter with Elon Musk.
