Donald Trump just found out this one Republican plans to challenge him in 2024

Donald Trump finally declared his intention to run for re-election.

Now the only remaining questions are when Trump plans to make this announcement and the size of the GOP Presidential field.

And Donald Trump just found out this one Republican plans to challenge him in 2024.

Trump told New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi that his only 2024 decision revolves around if he will declare his candidacy before or after the 2022 Midterm elections.

Nuzzi reported:

“Well, in my own mind, I’ve already made that decision, so nothing factors in anymore. In my own mind, I’ve already made that decision,” he said.

He wouldn’t disclose what he’d decided. Not at first. But then he couldn’t help himself. “I would say my big decision will be whether I go before or after,” he said. “You understand what that means?” His tone was conspiratorial. Was he referring to the midterm elections? He repeated after me: “Midterms.” Suddenly, he relaxed, as though my speaking the word had somehow set it free for discussion. “Do I go before or after? That will be my big decision,” he said.

But Trump’s announcement does not look like it will clear the field of potential GOP challengers.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is running for re-election this November.

Even though Noem faces no serious Democrat challenger, her campaign is now running ads about how “here, freedom runs free. So saddle up, we’re just getting started” in key early voting states such as Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, as well as General Election swing states like Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The Daily Caller reports:

Her campaign released a total of nine ads. Overall, the advertisement earned one quarter of its audience size from South Dakota, 11% in South Carolina, 10% in Ohio, nine percent in Pennsylvania and six percent in Iowa, according to Meta summary data.

The advertisement earned the majority of its audience size from probable key swing states in the 2024 presidential election, including New Hampshire, Ohio and Iowa. One version of the ad earned 86% of its audience from New Hampshire, another earned 93% of its views from Ohio, and one garnered 87% of its views in Nevada. A separate advertisement earned 86% in Pennsylvania.

Noem gained a following in the GOP as the only Governor to completely 100 percent reject lockdowns and mask mandates during the COVID pandemic.

And Noem is not the only Republican gearing up for a 2024 Presidential campaign even if Trump runs.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to make moves that hint a Presidential campaign announcement is coming following the Midterm elections.

Donald Trump is still the favorite for the GOP nomination in 2024.

But it is clear that Trump will not get a free pass.
