Current and Former Governors Predicted to Dominate 2024 Presidential Election

The Sunday talk show circuit was full of current and former Governors sharing their predictions for the 2024 Presidential race.

Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” former New Jersey Governor Chris Sununu predicted that most of those entering the GOP’s primary race alongside former President Donald Trump would be current and former Governors. He also suggested there may be “one Senator” in the mix, a reference to Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), who is also poised to enter the crowded race.

Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is likely to announce her entrance into the 2024 Presidential election on Wednesday.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (R) was outspoken about his views on the kind of leadership needed to steer the country, saying on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “we need results-driven leadership.”

Sununu then criticized former GOP leadership, a not-so-subtle dig at Trump, who he referenced when he said that “stuff that we were told was gonna happen in 2017 and 2018” never did.

He used healthcare reform and border security as promises the previous GOP administration made but didn’t follow through.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) also made predictions of his own on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” saying Biden “has what it takes” to run and win in 2024.

Senate Majority Leader Chuch Schumer shared his glowing opinion of Biden on ABC’s “This Week,” telling host George Stephanopoulos the President is “in great shape” and declaring his optimism. Then, also on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Utah’s Republican Governor Spencer Cox declared his preference for Governor’s taking the Oval Office, saying, “I prefer governors.”
