Larry Elder is a conservative media figure who ran for California Governor during the recall election in 2021. He has now announced his White House bid.
Elder stated that he is the only one who has not served in the military. He made the statement during a Fox News Channel appearance, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday. He said: “I don’t feel good about it.” He added that he felt a “moral” and “religious” as well as a “patriotic” duty to give back to the country.
He said it was a “disgraceful Lie” that Democrats claim the country is racist.
Elder wants to bring attention to the issue of fatherless families and America’s welfare program.
Since the mid-1960s public policy has encouraged women to marry government officials and men to ignore their moral and financial responsibilities. Elder wrote that this is not a “problem” but a “crisis”.
Elder dominated the field of replacement candidates in California’s recall election for governor 2021. But Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom remained in his office after the recall vote, and won re-election as governor of California 2022.
“America is declining, but it is not inevitable. Politicians are cynical and detached. Californian, I have seen how decades of Democrat control has turned the Golden State into a dystopia that many Californians cannot afford. I will not let them do that to America. We can enter a Golden Age in America, but first we need to choose a leader that can lead us there. That’s why I’m running for President,” Elder noted on elderforpresident.com.
He joins the GOP field of candidates for president, which includes former U.S. President Donald Trump and former U.S. Nikki Haley is the ambassador to the United Nations, Vivek Ramaswamy is an entrepreneur and writer, and former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. Asa Hutchinson.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will likely enter the race, but U.S. Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina announced an exploratory group, which indicates that he could eventually join the fray.
