Barack Hussein Obama will retain his Presidential office for another four years after winning the 2012 Election, but we continue to look forward to see what the future may have in store for the United States. The recent election was tight up until the very end, coming down to key swing states and a small poll of electoral votes. There is no doubt that the Republican party is already trying to determine who they should nominate as their Presidential candidate in 2016 – but who will run for the GOP in four years?
There is already strong speculation about who will run for President in 2016, for both the democratic and republican parties. While we are still years away from official nominations at the national conventions, both sides are already working on putting the best candidate forth in the next election. Republican President George W. Bush served eight years from 2000 to 2008, and Democrat Obama will hold the office from 2008 until 2016. Many names are already being tossed around for the 2016 election, but you shouldn’t expect to see any official announcements for quite a while.
While no official presidential candidate announcements for 2016 are expected for years to come, many political experts and correspondents already think that they know who will be running. Below are some of the top contenders for the 2016 Presidential Election Race. We will continue to bring you the most updated news about local and national elections so that you can make the most informed decision possible when it comes time to vote for the President in 2016.
GOP Candidates for 2016
Chris Christie, Marco Rubio and Sarah Palin are all potential Republican candidates for the 2016 Presidential race. The GOP will fight hard to put forth the best candidate for President for 2016 after a very difficult election race in 2012. Mitt Romney’s disappointing loss has sparked a fire under the GOP to do all they can to win the 2016 election and take complete control over Washington.
Chris Christie appears to be the best qualified candidate as of now, but Marco Rubio will make his case that he should be the next President of the United States in the coming years. Sarah Palin has become famous for much more than politics, with her recent reality tv shows and public appearances, leading many to think that the American people wouldn’t take her seriously if she were to get the Republican nomination in 2016.
Democratic Candidates for 2016
Hillary Clinton, Mark Warner and Tim Kaine are leading the way for democratic presidential nominees in 2016. Clinton could become the first female President of the United States if she ran, and won the election in four years. Tim Kaine does stand a chance of surprising the American people by winning the Democratic nomination, but currently wouldn’t be considered a front runner.
