Gov. Youngkin Gains Steam as 2024 Speculation Grows

More eyes are on Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin as he touts an impressive fundraising haul and prepares to travel across the country to stump for Republican candidates. The two moves are considered key signals the newly elected governor could be considering a potential 2024 run for president.

According to The Washington Examiner:

Youngkin raised $2.64 million into his political action committee, Spirit of Virginia, a state-regulated PAC without contribution limits, from Jan. 1 through June 30, according to figures shared with the Washington Examiner. The governor’s haul more than doubled what his three immediate predecessors raised during their first six months in office and reveals a chief executive not content to return to private life after concluding the single, four-year term afforded to him under Virginia’s constitution.

The resources Youngkin is raising into Spirit of Virginia and his relatively new federal political nonprofit group, America’s Spirit, are going toward building a political operation dedicated to expanding the governor’s footprint and influence, beyond the Old Dominion, as he considers a 2024 run for the White House. That effort is taking shape in the form of accelerated travel to states, red and blue, to boost Republican candidates requesting his assistance.

Indeed, Youngkin’s planned travel, the extent of which his political advisers are temporarily keeping under wraps, is intended to show his unique versatility on the national stage: At home, in GOP strongholds, where former President Donald Trump and his brand of conservative populism are popular but also welcome in suburban communities and swing states, where traditional Republicans and independents who take a dim view of the former president predominate.

Some party insiders believe Youngkin could be the key to assembling a coalition that would be unbeatable in 2024. Youngkin is mulling higher office in part because he is prohibited from running for reelection in 2025.

Virginia allows governors to serve multiple term just not consecutively.

“As soon as it became clear that Youngkin would win a governor’s race by threading the needle between Trump voters and mainstream suburban voters, he became a viable candidate for president,” said Jim Dornan, a Republican strategist in Washington. “His exploring that possibility doesn’t surprise me at all.”

THE NEW WORLD LIBERAL ORDER! WTF! How much corruption can biden and his democrats be allowed? Start impeachment hearings now? THIS IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN, IMPEACHMENTS will be coming anyway after the mid terms, Hunter Biden brags about his influence over Joe Biden, ARE COMMUNIST RUNNING OUR COUNTRY? “So we’ve got a lot of questions about Hunter’s business dealings and questions for Biden administration officials to determine that the President is in fact compromised because of Hunter’s shady business dealings,” Comer explained. While Joe has denied having any knowledge of Hunter’s foreign business deals, more and more evidence suggests that this is a lie. impeach every asshole who broke his oath to our Country to protect and serve, replace them with those who love our country and are not looking to line their own pockets. Have all monies taken in by the biden crime family returned to the American tax payer as a penalty for their disloyalty to our nation. When Republicans take control of the House, Representative James Comer is in line to take over as Chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee.

This clown is not even an option for the Presidential race in 2024. If he does run, he will quickly learn he is not “THE ONE”!

Did eve occur to the writer of this story that our best Presidents usually have more experience before being inflated too soon for ‘prime time’. Let the people judge the seasoning before kow-towing to the idea that Republicans may need a new face to improve on the success of the last one? A lot of people need someone to refute Biden with a strong record of governing success.

Tell him to get some experience and come back in a few years – after Trumps next term then after DeSantis finishes his 2 terms – then maybe he could run

He can’t even protect his own state, he sure won’t be able to protect this country. He throw it under the bus like other fake republicans have. He sure won’t get my vote he is sellouts, he care more about himself obviously than doing what is right. These Democrats never change even though he said he’s a Republican
