Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley insists he isn’t running for president in 2024, but his recent actions have led many political analysts to doubt the truth of that promise.

The freshman GOP senator, the youngest in the chamber when he was elected in 2018, has taken a number of stances to quickly distinguish himself from many of his colleagues. Hawley told Politico that running for president is “clearly not” his focus, but he remains a common pick to be among the main crop of Republican candidates less than four years from now.
