A former Texas representative, declared on Thursday that he will run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024. Hurd, who was first chosen for his congressional seat in 2014 and did not seek reelection in 2020, is now huge underdog in the crowded field of 13 other hopefuls. In recent interview, the former congressman, who has been vocal opponent of former President Donald Trump, predicted that contest between Trump and Vice President Joe Biden would be “rematch from hell.”

Hurd worked as CIA agent secretly in counterterrorism before beginning his political career.

Hurd shocked both party strategists in 2014 when he defeated Democratic incumbent Rep. Pete Gallego by a margin of about 2,400 votes to win his first election. In 2018, Hurd narrowly prevailed in his bid for reelection.

Hurd said he left Congress to assist the GOP become more diverse rather than admitting that he was worried about his chances of winning reelection in a seat that was becoming more competitive. At the time of his retirement announcement, he was the sole Black Republican in the House.

In the video, Hurd asserts that “President Biden can’t or won’t solve these problems.” We all know Joe Biden will win again if we choose to select a lawless, self-centered, failed politician like Donald Trump, who lost the House, the Senate, and the White House.
