Next Tuesday’s midterm elections might not only determine who will represent Americans politically locally, statewide, and nationally, but might also determine when former President Trump will make his official announcement of his expected 2024 run for the White House.
One main consideration for the Trumpster is the US Senate, currently split 50/50, with has many races that are too close to call.
Similar to 2020, Georgia might not have a winner on November 8th, requiring a Dec. 6 runoff between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Trump-backed Herschel Walker.
Trump has reportedly been reaching out to confidantes to lay out possible scenarios.
Former President Donald Trump plans to formally announce his long-teased third run for the White House later this month, two sources told The Post Friday.
One source added that Nov. 14, the Monday after the midterm elections, is the likely date the 45th president will launch his bid. Another source said an announcement would come sometime this month, but they had not heard of a specific date being set.
Kellyanne Conway, who previously served as Trump’s 2016 campaign manager and a top adviser in the Trump White House, told reporters at a roundtable on Thursday that she expects the former president to announce “soon.”
“I give him a ton of credit for not announcing this year, for not stepping in the way of midterm candidates. … I think you can expect him to announce soon,” Conway said at a Christian Science Monitor event.
The potential announcement date, six days after Republicans are expected to post big gains in the House and Senate, was first reported by Axios, which cited three sources familiar with the “sensitive discussions.”
Any announcement will likely be followed by several days of political events focused on the 45th president, the report said — with Trump’s allies blocking out days on their calendars for potential travel.
“Very, very, very probably — VERY, very, very probably. Get ready, that’s all I’m telling you. Very soon. Get ready,” he teased to roars of approval Thursday night at a rally in support of Republican candidates, including Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and Sen. Chuck Grassley.
