There's a new contender for potential Republican nominee in the 2024 presidential election:
He's currently the governor of Arkansas, although we all know that Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is going to take over that role very soon. She recently defeated her Democrat opponent on November 8.
Hutchinson has been a U.S. Representative and was administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration from 2001 to 2003.
This guy has the experience, he has the chops, he owns the skill.
But can he get past Donald Trump or whoever the rest of the Republican options are going to be?
Asa thinks so.
"A successful candidate is someone who addresses the problems that faces America. As you mentioned, I was in Iowa yesterday, and people are concerned about the rising cost, the excessive government spending, and they want their lives back, their freedoms back, and that’s the Republican message. This last midterm election was not a rejection of our ideas. It was a rejection of specific candidates that was not focused on the problems of Americans. So that’s the candidates. Those are the ones that can win. I agree with the vice president. There’s going to be a number of alternatives in 2024 to the former president’s announcement."
He made the comments on CNN. Shortly after, the host asked if Hutchinson considered himself one of those alternatives.
Asa replied that all of America might be considering him very soon.
"Absolutely. I’m looking at it, looking at it very seriously. After the midterm elections, it’s more intense, and it is accelerated review. And after going to Iowa, I’m encouraged that a governor who’s actually solved problems, who has a conservative common sense approach can draw support and can be a good alternative. So I’m encouraged by it, probably looking at January for a decision point."
