(FiveNation.com)- Although the 2024 Presidential race is still a ways away, some Republicans are already testing the waters to see if there is support for them to launch a potential run for the White House. Among them is America First conservative and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Though Pompeo has not confirmed that he plans to run in 2024, in an interview set to air this fall, Pompeo did say he wants to be impactful.
Pompeo told The Carlos Watson Show that he wants to have an impact on things that he cares about both at home and abroad.
If he chooses to jump into the 2024 race, Pompeo said, he would campaign on returning to the idea that “family is at the center of America” – calling family “the granular infrastructure that makes this country completely unique.”
Pompeo believes if he can get everyone to refocus on families, churches and schools and ensure those institutions are strong, then he knows he would have done good for America “and our republic will stand.”
Watch the video segment from the upcoming interview:
Many believe that Pompeo, as one of Trump’s most solid cabinet members, is very well positioned for a 2024 run. Already Pompeo has made appearances in early primary states including Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Pompeo, a former Kansas Republican Congressman, said if he does run in 2024, he would launch his campaign from Wichita and tout the state’s traditional conservative values.
Currently former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and former Vice President Mike Pence, among others, have also begun putting out feelers about jumping into the 2024 race.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a strong favorite among the Republican base, has yet to say whether or not he would consider running for President in 2024. DeSantis, who is up for reelection in November 2022, remains focused on doing his job and preparing for his 2022 reelection campaign.
Thus far, the wild card of 2024 is former President Donald Trump.
Many of those who are considering running may forgo the race should Trump jump in. But at this point, Mr. Trump has not said whether or not he will take another run at the White House.
