Conservative Talk Show's Close Friend Says He Will 'Likely' Announce Presidential Bid Soon

According to a close friend of Larry Elder, the conservative talk show host and former Republican California gubernatorial candidate is expected to make an announcement soon about his candidacy for president in 2024.

Tom Tradup, who is a close friend of Larry Elder and also the vice president of SALEM Radio Network, revealed in an interview with the DCNF that Elder had previously expressed his intention to launch a campaign for the GOP nomination by the end of March or early April. However, Elder is now expected to make an announcement about his presidential campaign by the end of this month. Elder gained national attention when he ran as a Republican candidate in the 2021 California gubernatorial recall election to oust Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom. Additionally, Elder hosts "The Larry Elder Show".

Tradup stated that Elder is expected to campaign on a platform of reviving traditional American values and is likely to use his frequently repeated slogan "we've got a country to save" to garner support.

“If he makes a decision to run, it’s because he truly does want to help this country move forward,” said Tradup. “[Americans] are tired of having word-processed, overly lawyered campaign statements that they run through the deflavorizor so that they won’t offend anybody. What you end up with is these candidates running who don’t stand for anything.”

Tradup mentioned that Elder has recently visited Iowa, a crucial state for early primaries, and has a political action committee called Elder For America which has been receiving donations from all over the country. According to the Federal Election Commission, the PAC raised almost $1.7 million in 2022.

During the recall election, Elder led the replacement candidates with 48.4% of the votes, which amounted to approximately 3.5 million votes. However, in the end, 69.1% of voters opted against recalling Newsom.

According to Tradup, it was a challenging task for Elder to contest against Newsom in a predominantly blue state, but he believes that it would not prevent Elder from running for the presidency, as the demographic makeup of other parts of the country is different. He highlighted Elder's success on the alternative ballot, where he won in 57 out of 58 counties in the state.

“Any Republican running in California is going to have a tough time because of the heavy, heavy Democratic registration,” said Tradup. “But the rest of the country is going to be very open to hearing the message that Larry Elder delivers.”

Larry Elder is expected to enter the presidential race, which will put him in competition with other candidates such as former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, conservative entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and former President Donald Trump. It's worth noting that Elder has defended Trump, especially when he faced accusations.
