Former President Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are the most likely potential candidates to win the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. But, according to CNN political reporter Chris Cilizza, you shouldn’t count out Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.
Scott’s status as the sole black Republican in the Senate and his proven ability to fundraise landed him third on Cilizza’s most recent ranking of the 2024 GOP field.
While Trump and DeSantis embody the brash “MAGA” populism that’s come to dominate political discourse on the right, Scott fits the mold of a more traditional, pro-free market Republican.
- OK, BUT: The polls have repeatedly shown Trump trouncing even his nearest rival, DeSantis, when it comes to who Republicans want in 2024.
