Raymond La Raja Quoted on Timing of Trump Announcing his Candidacy for 2024

Raymond La Raja, Professor of Political Science at UMass Amherst, is quoted in a column asking if former President Trump is getting ready to run again. La Raja said, “He gains nothing by announcing so soon. Everyone knows he is the front runner and he has major support in the electorate that few can match. By holding off, he makes it harder for others to calibrate their decisions and raise money.” (National Interest, 3/1/21)
