South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has repeatedly said she has no interest in running for the 2024 Republican President nomination.
However, two developments over the past week spark further speculation that the Conservative first-term governor and strong supporter of former President Trump, whom political experts see as a potential candidate, likely has national ambitions in the next White House race.
PENCE TRIPS SPARK NEXT 2024 SPECULATION
Influential Iowa-based socially conservative group The FAMiLY Leader announced Wednesday that Noem will host the 10th Annual Leadership Summit on July 16 in Des Moines.
For half a century, Iowa’s meetings have been running the presidential nomination calendar, and every stop at Hawkeye State for potential White House hopes increases the buzz in 2024.
“We are grateful to be able to once again welcome nationally recognized voices and leaders to the FAMiLY Leadership Summit in Iowa,” said Group President and CEO Bob Vander Plaats in a statement.
TIM SCOTT’S SPEECH SPURS MUCH 2024 BUZZ
Hours before the announcement in Iowa, Noem was the featured virtual guest at the recent New Hampshire Right of Center group of conservative activists and leaders, first reported by Fox News.
New Hampshire has – of course – held the first White House primary in a century.
While Noem debated or asked questions about 2024, she repeatedly targeted President Biden, arguing that “what we saw of the Biden administration was utterly devastating”.

Noem, who is up for re-election in 2022 and became a Conservative heroine last year for her opposition to the restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic, pointed out that “we have been pushing back on several levels.”
The governor has been seen on early cattle trains calling for potential GOP White House hopes in 2024, such as the January Republican National Committee winter meeting and the February Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), both held in Florida. Noem finished second after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the CPAC straw poll for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination if Trump doesn’t run.
Why did Liz Cheney call a radio program in New Hampshire?
Wyoming Republican MP Liz Cheney made headlines last month when she was asked by the New York Post about a possible offer for president in 2024: “I’m not going to include or exclude anything.”
In the past week, Cheney was one of the major national stories when the vocal critic of Trump’s repeated unsubstantiated claims that the 2020 presidential election had been “rigged” and “stolen” was ousted from her GOP leadership position by her fellow Republican in the chamber.
Cheney was fired from her leadership position and vowed to continue speaking out against Trump’s steadfast influence in the Republican Party while it raises its political profile.
Liz Cheney is planning her next political move
Cheney said during an interview on NBC’s TODAY – when asked about a possible 2024 offer – that she would “do anything to prevent Trump from returning to the White House.”
But hours later, in an interview with Fox News’ Brett Baier on “Special Report”, Cheney replied “I’m not” when asked again if she was considering a presidential campaign.
The next morning, Cheney called on a morning news / talk radio program in New Hampshire, which of course sparked further talks about the Congressman in Wyoming in 2024.

When asked during the New Hampshire Today interview about the next presidential race, she said it was “not something I focus on” before adding that she “does not include or exclude anything”.
It doesn’t seem that Cheney’s appearance on New Hampshire radio wasn’t a sign that she was serious about a White House run. A source in Cheney’s orbit said the interview was the only one she held in any of the presidential primary and caucus preferred states as of now. When asked about the interview in New Hampshire, the source said the broadcaster asked her as a guest.
