Popular Conservative commentator and writer, Candace Owens, announced on Twitter yesterday that she is considering the possibility of running President.
Although she did not state when this run would take place, she will be old enough in 2024 to launch her own campaign, as she turns 32 in April later this year.
Who is Candace Owens?
Connecticut-born Owens rose to online prominence in 2017 after voicing numerous opinions online, getting into the gritty work that of political commentary.
But what does she stand for?
Candace has previously stated that before 2015, she had absolutely no interest in politics but also claimed that she identified as a liberal before 2017.
In 2015, Owens was the CEO of a blog site known as Degree180, a site that Owens used to post anti-conservative and anti-trump rhetoric.
However, by late 2017, she began to publish positive conservative opinions, whilst denouncing left-wing viewpoints regarding systemic racism and identity politics.
Owens has been a massive critic of the Democratic Party and the identity politics that the left likes to play with, so much so that she founded her own social media movement known as Blexit, an idea to get African Americans, as well as other ethnic minorities, to abandon the Democratic Party and to encourage them to be their own person instead of just living within their group identity.
In 2018, when Owens founded her movement, roughly 8% of all African Americans identified as a Republican, with the RNC only claiming around 20% of the non-white in the 2020 general election.
But will she run for office?
Candace Owens has previously expressed her intentions to run for public office in the past.
In 2020, Owens expressed her desire to run for Senate or to become a governor, citing that she would not run against a Republican, she would only run against a Democratic incumbent.
Her tweet yesterday, announcing her intentions to run for the presidency, sets alight a potential political career for her, but would she be accepted into the mainstream Republican party?
Well, she does have to win over some mainstream Republicans, as she last year by labelling AOC a ‘spoiled brat’, after Ocasio Cortez claimed that Republicans wouldn’t be able to handle doing a double shift in a restaurant, something that Owens has experience in.
