2024 GOP Presidential Hopefuls May Be Testing Mettle in Georgia

With two Georgia runoff elections set to determine control of the Senate, the state may be the perfect platform for Republicans with their sights set on a White House run in 2024.

Several notables already have made appearances under the auspices of lending support to GOP candidates David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, but by doing so they also get their names and faces in front of voters both in Georgia and nationally, The Hill notes.

Among those who already have made appearances: Vice President Mike Pence and Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, and Rick Scott of Florida. And while they have not physically visited the state, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott and former South Carolina Gov. and Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley have offered support to the two senators from their neighboring state.

Then there's President Donald Trump himself. Trump is still fighting to get a second term, but should that not pan out, he's hinted he'll be back in 2024, the likely frontrunner. Trump is set to be in Georgia on Saturday in support of Loeffler and Perdue.

None of the politicians have made any indications they intended to run for president in 2024 other than Trump if he isn't inaugurated in January.

"Georgia is kind of a twofer right now," one GOP operative told The Hill. "It's easy enough to give the excuse that you’re just there trying to protect the Senate majority, but you're still getting your name and your face out there for if and when you decide to pull the trigger on a campaign."
