Former Texas Rep. Will Hurd announces he’s running for President

Former Texas Rep. Will Hurd has announced his candidacy for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. Hurd, who served in Congress from 2015 to 2021 and did not seek reelection in 2020, enters the race as a major underdog. He has been vocal in his criticism of former President Donald Trump and recently referred to a potential Biden-Trump rematch as a “rematch from hell.” Hurd, 45, stated in an interview that someone like him, a dark horse candidate, can win the nomination. He emphasized the need to articulate a different vision and not be afraid of Trump. In a video announcing his candidacy, Hurd highlighted illegal immigration and inflation as his key motivations for running. He expressed concerns about threats to the American Dream, including chaos caused by enemies, illegal immigration, fentanyl smuggling, inflation, and growing crime and homelessness in cities. Prior to his political career, Hurd served as an undercover CIA officer working in counterterrorism. After leaving Congress, he worked as an investment banker and consultant specializing in cybersecurity and foreign affairs. Hurd’s decision to leave Congress was driven by his desire to help diversify the Republican Party. At the time of his retirement announcement, he was the only Black Republican in the House.
