Think again, my friend!
We already have many Repubs jockeying for space in the up coming primaries…..Cruz is visiting all the states with early primaries……so is Santorum…..likewise for Rubio and of course the inevitable family, Paul. There are others that the MSM seems to be leaning toward at this time……Christie, Bush, Walker and a newcomer to the possibles. Scott Brown….you remember him the loser in the race against Warren in Mass, right?
First the ne3ws about Brown…….
Report from the Huffington Post:
Less than a year after losing his bid for reelection, former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is “curious” about pursuing a higher political office.
Closing out a weekend where he visited the Iowa State Fair, a key 2016 stomping ground, Brown said he is exploring the possibility of a 2016 presidential run.
In an interview published Sunday with the Boston Herald, Brown’s comments gave a clearer picture of where his White House ambitions stand.
“I want to get an indication of whether there’s even an interest, in Massachusetts and throughout the country, if there’s room for a bi-partisan problem solver,” Brown said. “It’s 2013 — I think it’s premature, but I am curious.”
The one that most media seems to prefer at this point is New Jersey’s Christie……..he seems to be at odds with several of the perceived frontrunners….personally, I think this is his attempt to identify his base for the coming election……
Report from CNN:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie planted himself firmly in the Republican Party’s establishment wing Thursday with a pugnacious speech calling on his party to focus on pragmatism rather than ideology and crippling internal debates.
“We are not a debating society,” Christie told a lunchtime audience at the Republican National Committees summer meeting in Boston. “We are a political operation that needs to win.”
Some of Christie’s remarks, relayed to a reporter by GOP officials who attended the closed-press event, were interpreted by many here as another jab at Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a potential rival for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
Christie also appeared to rap Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, another potential White House hopeful who made headlines in January when he implored the GOP to “stop being the stupid party.”
“I’m not going to be one of these people who goes around and calls our party stupid,” Christie said, a startling remark given that Jindal and Christie work hand-in-hand as chairman and vice-chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
So NO it is not too early to be thinking about 2016…….why? It is going to be a circus and all the clowns need to find their parameters and their vase……
Does anyone see someone that I may have missed in this analysis…….let’s discuss it.
