According to data from the Federal Election Commission, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has joined the ranks of prominent Republicans vying for the presidential candidacy in the 2024 election. He becomes the seventh notable figure within the Republican Party to announce his intention to run.

Former President Donald Trump was the first to declare his candidacy in December, setting the stage for a competitive race. Other Republican contenders include Nikki Haley, Asa Hutchinson, and Tim Scott, as well as political outsiders Vivek Ramaswamy and Larry Elder. The Republican field for the 2024 election is shaping up to be a diverse and dynamic one, with each candidate bringing their unique perspectives and visions to the forefront.

 

President Joe Biden officially filed his bid for the Democratic Party’s candidacy on April 25, which coincides with the date he filed in 2019. Prior to President Biden’s announcement, two notable figures had already entered the race.

Marianne Williamson, a self-help author and repeat presidential candidate, declared her intention to run for the Democratic nomination. Additionally, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, made headlines for his anti-vaccine stance when he announced his bid.

The Democratic field for the 2024 election is beginning to take shape with President Biden seeking re-election, alongside other candidates who bring their unique perspectives and ideas to the forefront of the party’s primary race.

So who will get the nomination?

Former President Donald Trump continues to exert significant influence and maintain a prominent position within the Republican Party’s potential presidential candidates for the upcoming 2024 election. His announcement of a presidential run in December solidified his position as a leading figure in the Republican field.

While several other notable Republicans have declared their candidacies, including Governor Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Asa Hutchinson, Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Larry Elder, it is evident that Donald Trump’s presence still dominates the field. His previous presidency and ongoing popularity among Republican voters contribute to his influential role within the party.

The Republican primary race for the 2024 election is expected to be highly competitive, with Donald Trump’s continued prominence shaping the dynamics and discourse within the party.

 

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, it is likely that President Joe Biden, as the incumbent, will be supported by the Democratic establishment for his re-election bid in the 2024 election. Incumbent presidents often receive the backing of their respective parties, and the Democratic establishment generally supports their party’s incumbent candidate.

However, it’s important to note that political landscapes can evolve, and unexpected events can influence the dynamics of an election. While the Democratic establishment may currently favour President Biden, the political landscape can change over time, leading to shifts in party dynamics and candidate support.

Ultimately, the decision regarding the Democratic Party’s candidate for the 2024 election will be influenced by a combination of factors, including internal party dynamics, primary elections, public opinion, and the overall political climate leading up to the election.
