Trump '24 Campaign Begins Eyeing Personnel in Latest Sign Don's Running

If you were a gambler, the easy money in American politics right now would be betting that Donald Trump will be running for President in 2024.

Sure, he has been a bit reluctant to make any official statement as of yet regarding his potential candidacy, but that is almost surely on account of not wanting to give the Democrats any extra ammunition during the 2022 midterms which conclude in just two weeks’ time.

If we read between the lines, however, there is little doubt that Trump will find himself in the mix, and sooner rather than later.

The latest bit of evidence of his likely campaign comes as rumors swirl regarding a major personnel choice.

Former president Donald Trump and his team are eyeing a longtime Virginia operative to take on a senior role in his next presidential campaign, which could be announced shortly after the midterms, according to four people familiar with the matter.

No decisions have been made on the exact role that Chris LaCivita would take in Trump’s campaign, though discussions have included a possible role as campaign manager or senior adviser. LaCivita is a longtime Republican political consultant who helped lead the Swift Vets and POWs for Truth campaign against Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry in 2004 and who is now directing a super PAC tied to Trump.

The dodgy nature of the responses from those involved seems to belie that at least some conversation is taking place.

“Thank you for the opportunity but I don’t comment on rumors!!” LaCivita wrote in a text message to The Washington Post.

A Trump spokesman did not directly address LaCivita when asked for comment.

“As President Trump continues to fuel the Republican Party’s march towards a historic Midterm Election, aiming to propel more than 300 endorsed-candidates into office and providing the energy that will turn out a record number of voters, America is rightfully hungry and excited to know what’s next,” spokesman Taylor Budowich said in a statement. “President Trump is focused on what’s important: Making America Great Again.”

Trump has also suggested that he’ll be running in a roundabout way, by suggesting during a media interview that even an indictment wouldn’t prevent him from announcing his candidacy.
