Gov. Asa Hutchinson considers presidential bid in 2024

As Gov. Asa Hutchinson completes his second and final term as governor, he announced he could make a presidential run in 2024.

ARKANSAS, USA — Governor Asa Hutchinson announced he could make a presidential run in 2024 and won’t have an effect on former President Donald Trump’s bid.

Arkansas State Law restricts Hutchinson’s time as Governor barring him from approaching a third term.

On Sunday, May 1, Trump spoke to CNN’s “State of the Union” revealing his consideration of a presidential run. He also told CNN that his recent trip to a Politics and Eggs event in New Hampshire was made with the potential run in mind. The state’s early primary could play a pivotal role for 2024 candidates making the visit important for presidential hopefuls.

In January, Hutchinson spoke to Business Insider, telling them he was against former President Donald Trump leading Republicans or the Country again. On Sunday, he reiterated his position and demonstrated it would not affect his own decision to run.

Governor Hutchinson intends to wait for the end of his term to make his decision.
