Many have speculated that Missouri Senator Josh Hawley may be considering making a run for the White House in the next election. Despite the fact Biden was inaugurated a week ago, Hawley is already revealing his plans for the next election. His decision? Hawley told a Business Inside reporter that he is not planning to run for president.
The Daily Caller reports:
In a hallway interview with Business Insider, Hawley said “No, I’m not running,” when asked if he would be running in 2024. Hawley was considered to be one of the Republicans eyeing a 2024 presidential run. Hawley has made a name for himself throughout the country for his hawkish stances against China and Big Tech.
Hawley recently had his book deal with Simon & Schuster canceled after the pro-Trump riot on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol, however, it was picked up by the conservative publisher Regnery.
In early January, Hawley said a group of Antifa members threatened, vandalized and pounded on his door while his wife and newborn daughter were inside at night.
Hawley became the first Senator to say he would object during Congress’s counting of the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6.
Could Hawley’s decision not to run in 2024 be linked to hid dip in approval ratings following the Capitol hill riot? What do you think?
