Ted Cruz touts 2024 election chances despite Trump hinting he’ll run – Axios

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told conservative outlet the Truth Gazette in an interview published Wednesday he believes he’s well-placed to be selected as the Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential election.

Driving the news: Brilyn Hollyhand, the 15-year-old founder and editor-in-chief of the Gazette, asked Cruz if he’d ever try running for president again. “Absolutely, in a heartbeat,” Cruz replied.

  • Cruz noted he ended up placing second when he ran in 2016, losing out to now-former President Trump.
  • “There’s a reason historically that the runner-up is almost always the next nominee,” Cruz added.

Yes, but: Trump has hinted on several occasions about running for office again in 2024 and he’s frequently listed as the most popular choice in polls of Republican voters.
