Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley said Tuesday that he will not run for President in 2024, hinting he will focus on his work in the Senate.

In a hallway interview with Business Insider, Hawley said “No, I’m not running,” when asked if he would be running in 2024. Hawley was considered to be one of the Republicans eyeing a 2024 presidential run. Hawley has made a name for himself throughout the country for his hawkish stances against China and Big Tech.
