As Nikki Haley enters presidential race, here are the potential 2024 Republican contenders

The contest to become the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nominee is heating up, with Nikki Haley, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and longshot candidate Vivek Ramaswamy each announcing runs since the beginning of the year, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson joining the fray in a Sunday-show appearance on April 2.

Another notable move has been the rollout of a campaign-style book by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, in which he argues that his approach to managing his state can provide a model for the rest of the country.

And former President Donald Trump appears to be getting a political lift from a Manhattan district attorney’s case against him, though some analysts don’t see the boost lasting.

So who are all the GOP politicians in the mix for 2024?

Below is MarketWatch’s list of the potential Republican presidential contenders and the status of their candidacies.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden appears poised to announce this spring that he’ll seek re-election in 2024. Democrats seem to be closing ranks behind Biden, although author and activist Marianne Williamson said she’s seeking the party’s nomination again and vigorously defended her decision to challenge Biden in an extensive question-and-answer session with MarketWatch. Anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. also is mounting a longshot challenge to Biden, as he filed a statement of candidacy in early April.

Biden gave a fresh hint on Monday about his re-election bid at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, saying in an interview with Al Roker of NBC’s “Today” show that he aims to take part in “at least three or four more Easter egg rolls. Maybe five. Maybe six.”

“I’m planning on running, Al, but we’re not prepared to announce it yet,” the president said.
