Republican U.S. Rep. Will Hurd Says He’s Considering Running for President in 2024

Rep. Will Hurd

U.S. Rep. Will Hurd said Thursday he is considering a run for president in 2024.

The third-term Republican congressman from Helotes is leaving the House at the end of this term, and his retirement announcement sent shockwaves throughout national politics.

In an interview Thursday with The Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith, Hurd addressed a slew of issues, including background checks and redistricting.

"If they're still not being addressed in a macro way, if I'm still the only person that's still talking about these things, if I'm put in a position in order to evaluate that, then I will do what I have always done when I've had the opportunity to serve my country," he said when asked if he's considering a run for the presidency. "I will think about it."

Hurd, an African-American former CIA officer, could offer the Republican Party a sharp change from the Trump era. He arrived in Austin from Washington, where he left behind a political explosion.

Earlier Thursday, the White House released a whistleblower complaint that charged President Donald Trump with pressuring Ukrainian leadership to investigate unfounded charges against the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential 2020 opponent for Trump. As a result of the allegations, Democrats are pushing forward with an impeachment inquiry into Trump.

“I think that’s a premature conversation to have. That’s why you have investigations,” he said. “Everything in this document are allegations, and we should make sure we’re doing everything to confirm those allegations.”

He compared the coverage of the impeachment saga in recent days to vote-the-contestants-off episodes of “Survivor” and to Trump’s former reality show, “The Apprentice.”

During his time in Congress, Hurd has proved to be a prolific fundraiser and was able to lock down the 23rd Congressional District, a seat that regularly flipped between the two parties.

"Everybody keeps saying I'm retiring," Hurd said. "I'm 42. I'm just getting started."

And, seriously, those who still identify as Republicans, how can you feel that it's OK? That party seems to be in a horrible place now.
 

Yes, it's pretty big news here: "...House Minority Leader Darren Jackson said in a hastily called press conference after the vote that House Rules Chairman David Lewis told him Tuesday the House would take no recorded votes on the floor until 1 p.m. Wednesday. Jackson, D-Wake, said he then told his caucus they didn't need to be on the floor Wednesday morning and could instead prepare for redistricting meetings and other legislative business planned for the day."
 
Highlights a fundamental difference between the two parties;  Neither the Democrats or the Republicans are interested in a diversity of ideas or the whole truth.  The difference is the Democrats pretend that they are and the Republicans give you a Johnny Cash middle finger and say that's right, what you gonna do about it? {#Lol}

Yes, I believe something similar happened in Wisconsin  several years back (over civil-servant pensions IIRC).  The protesting senators were ordered to be arrested but left the state as well.  It was also without that added "twist".

Yes, I remember when that happened, but I don't believe any of them made a tacit threat about engaging in gunfire with law enforcement officers.  Perhaps he meant it as a sarcastic joke?

Indeed.

It always seems to me to be a "now  we're falling off the cliff to meet our doom on the rocks below" argument.  A seeming inability to differentiate between discrete programs and policies and the indelible imprint of a (perceived) negative brand.
