Former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson announced his intention to run for President in 2024 as a Republican.

According to the Washington Post:

Former Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson announced Sunday that he will run for president in 2024, a move that comes after he has marketed himself in televised interviews and events as a more stable alternative to former president Donald Trump.

“I have made a decision, and my decision is I’m going to run for president of the United States,” Hutchinson said in an interview on ABC’ “This Week.” He added that his formal announcement will come in April, in Arkansas, but he wanted to clarify that he is running. “And the reason is, I’ve traveled the country for six months, I hear people talk about the leadership of our country. I’m convinced that people want leaders that appeal to the best of America, and not simply appeal to our worst instincts,” he said.

The former Arkansas governor said in the ABC interview that Trump, who has been indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, should drop out of the race due to that development.
