2024 Presidential Primaries

Voting Date:

Democrat
Joe Biden (incumbent)
Democrat

U.S. President (2021 - present); U.S. Vice President (2008 - 2016); Senator, U.S. Senate (1972 - 2008)

In 2021 Joe Biden was the oldest American ever to be sworn in as president, at age 78. From day one of his presidency there was speculation he would step down for a younger Democrat rather than seek reelection. After Democrats outperformed expectations in the midterms, however, Biden supporters gained momentum. In April 2023 Biden announced he would run for reelection as president. He won New Hampshire's Democratic primary despite his name not appearing on the ballot after supporters organized a write-in campaign.

Representative, U.S. House of Representatives (2018 - present); co-owner, Penny's Coffee (2016 - present); co-owner, Talenti gelato (2012 - 2014); president and CEO, Phillips Distilling Company (2000 - 2012)

Dean Phillips announced he was challenging president Biden for the Democratic nomination in October 2023. He said, "I think President Biden has done a spectacular job for our country. But it's not about the past. This is an election about the future. I will not sit still I will not be quiet in the face of numbers that are so clearly saying that we're going to be facing an emergency next November." Phillips has served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and is one of the wealthiest members of Congress, thanks to his successful business ventures. Phillips dropped out of the race after Super Tuesday in March 2024.

Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson  
Democrat

Author; political activist; founder, Los Angeles and Manhattan Centers for Living; founder, Project Angel Food; co-founder, The Peace Alliance

Williamson has been described as a self-help author, spiritual advisor, and activist. She criticizes Biden and other Democratic Party leaders for policies that favor wealthy donors over working class voters – including efforts to bump New Hampshire later in the presidential primary calendar. She suspended her campaign in early February, then "un-suspended" her campaign after the Michigan primary on February 27. She acknowledged her slim chances at victory but said, "something so much more important than the horse race is at stake here. And we must respond."

Libertarian
Chase Oliver
Chase Oliver  
Libertarian

Candidate, U.S. Senator from Georgia (2020); restaurant business

Chase Oliver gained national attention when his U.S. Senate campaign gave him the opportunity to debate Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock. That race ended with a run-off between Warnock and his Republican challenger, which is one reason why Oliver supports ranked-choice voting. He also has a solution to the student debt crisis: make all current loans interest-free and end all future government-guaranteed loans. He secured the Libertarian Party nomination for president in May 2024.

Republican
Nikki Haley

Republican

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations (2017 - 2018); governor, South Carolina (2011 - 2017); representative, South Carolina House of Representatives (2004 - 2010)

Nikki Haley served as governor of South Carolina and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under president Trump. Her campaign announcement in February 2023 included a clear jab at both Trump and Biden: “America is not past our prime, it’s just that our politicians are past theirs.” Haley dropped out of the race after Super Tuesday in March 2024.

Donald Trump  
Republican

U.S. President (2016 - 2020); Businessman; Television personality; Author; CEO, The Trump Organization; Chairman, Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, Inc.

Shortly after the 2022 midterm election former president Donald Trump announced his third presidential campaign from Florida. Sticking with his previous campaign catchphrase, he said, “Our country was great. Our country is not great anymore.” He is a formidable campaign fundraiser, but not all Republicans are as enchanted with him as they were in the past. Still, he has emerged as the frontrunner, handily winning the New Hampshire Republican primary.
