The 2024 race will be more than just a contest for the nomination: it will be also a battle to shape the GOP going forward. Veteran Republican strategist Colin Reed noted that “whenever the Trump era comes to an end, whether that ’s next year or five years from now, the GOP will go through a period of

We won't know whether or not President Donald Trump will win a second term for (at least) six more days.

If confirmed, Kavanaugh would fortify the high court's conservative majority, and spotlight the rightward march of the federal judiciary under Trump and the GOP-controlled Senate.

But ambitious Republicans aren't waiting around to see if Trump can pull off a major upset. They're out campaigning for candidates in what is rightly understood as the early jockeying for the 2024 GOP nomination.

Ivanka or Trump Jr 2024 ? GOP considers the party’s fate after Trump and it’s ridiculous. "Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump are among Republican voters’ top picks for the GOP whether to succeed Donald Trump in the Oval Office or to take on a Democratic incumbent if this year’s race is lost.

The fight for the future of the Republican Party has already begun, and one possible contender is even Trumpier than the president. It may be four years away, but tryouts for the 2024 GOP presidential primary officially kicked off this week at the Republican National Convention.

Earlier this week, Nebraska's Sen. Ben Sasse was at the University of Iowa to deliver a lecture titled "American Order and Disorder, at Home and Abroad." And on Tuesday, Sasse was back in Iowa to "knock on doors for his friend Joni Ernst," according to James Wegmann, communications director for the senator.

Last week, former United Nations Ambassador (and former South Carolina Gov.) Nikki Haley was in Iowa stumping for Ernst. Arkansas' Sen. Tom Cotton, who is coasting to a second term this year, has made stops in both Iowa and New Hampshire in recent months.

All of these potential 2024 candidates insist they are solely focused on this election and helping Republicans keep their Senate majority. To which I say: Bull!

No politician just happens into Iowa. Not one. Doesn't happen.

What these candidate visits make clear is that the fight for the future of the post-Trump GOP has already begun. Whether Trump loses in six days or wins and serves four more years in office, the party and its potential future leaders have begun to grapple with what comes next.

The Point: Politics never sleeps. While Trump will remain a force within the GOP whether he wins or loses, he is also operating on borrowed political time now. The fight to be the Next Big Thing in Republican politics has already started.

Why the 2020s Could Be as Dangerous as the 1850s .
Democrats could win decisively next week. But that still wouldn’t neutralize minority Republican power.With Biden embracing America’s evolution and Trump appealing unrestrainedly to the white voters most fearful of it, the 2020 campaign marks a new peak in the most powerful trend shaping politics in this century. Over the past two decades, and especially since Barack Obama’s election in 2008, voters have re-sorted among the parties and thus reconfigured the central fault line between them.
