With the 2022 midterm elections fast approaching, the 2024 presidential elections are also bound to come soon.
Candidates are expected to start announcing their plans for running months after November Election Day. Potential candidates include President Biden and former President Trump, both of whom have been making statements about potentially trying to win the White House again in two years.
Outside of the two major political parties, there are also a number of politicians and celebrities that have been eyeing the White House and are considering running as independents.
The following people are the most likely independent candidates for the 2024 presidential election.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) recently made a statement saying that if Trump won the GOP nomination in 2024, then she would no longer be a Republican. This has led to many speculating that she would potentially place an independent candidacy for the presidency.
Andrew Yang, the businessman and former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate has recently made news as he announced that he would be leaving the Democratic party in favor of becoming independent. Many have seen this as a move made by Yang so that he can potentially follow through and have more chances with his presidential aspirations.
In July he joined the Renew America Movement, made up of former Republican officials, and the Serve America Movement, made up of Democrats, Republicans, and independents all of whom united under a new banner the Forward Party.
Radio host Howard Stern announced on his radio show that he was considering trying for president in 2024 if Trump was to be the Republican nominee once again. He also said that if he was to become President his first priority was to make the country fairer by eliminating the Electoral College.
Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, previously made a bid for the presidency in 2020, and is also expected to possibly try again in 2024.
