Texas Rep. Hurd heads to NH, sparking 2024 speculation
Rep. Will Hurd of Texas says he’s on a mission to help Republicans try and win back the House of Representatives next year.
“We lost 40 Republican seats in the last election and if want to take back the House, that path comes through New England,” Hurd told Fox News during a quick trip to New Hampshire on Friday.
“With the unique role that New Hampshire plays in our upcoming elections, I want to help build the infrastructure and make sure we’re articulating our values to as many people as we possibly can,” the three term congressman emphasized.
But for Hurd, considered an up-and-comer in the GOP, parachuting into to the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state also sparks some speculation that the former CIA officer may have national designs in 2024.
Asked about the possibility of a White House run in four years, Hurd said “it’s very nice for people to think that that’s even in the cards.”
