Republicans Line Up to Take On Trump in 2024 Presidential Race

AllSides Summary

After former President Donald Trump announced last week that he would again seek the presidency in 2024, other Republican candidates have begun to emerge.

For Context: At the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas over the weekend, nearly a dozen Republicans pitched themselves as potential 2024 alternatives to Trump, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Trump's former Vice President Mike Pence. Trump was already the focus of blame for the GOP's underwhelming 2022 midterm elections performance, and his campaign announcement generated even more pushback from across the political spectrum.

Key Quotes: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan told the Las Vegas crowd that "Trump needs to be tested. People need to go out there and be willing to stand up to him."

How the Media Covered It: The 2024 Republican race is already a focus of political news outlets on both left and right, with many emphasizing how crowded the field might be and how that might resemble the 2016 race, when Trump won the party's nomination with 45% of the popular primary vote. Coverage across the spectrum, especially from left- and center-rated sources, framed the Republican Party as being opposed to Trump's campaign.
