Former President Donald Trump will hold a campaign event in Columbia, South Carolina later this month, NBC News confirmed.

The event, first reported by Politico, will be the first of Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign since he first announced his candidacy in November. It is also the first Trump campaign to stop this cycle outside of Florida.

Trump was the first Republican to announce a 2024 campaign, having made it official in November, and he remains the only announced Republican candidate despite growing attention on other possible Republican champions.

At least half a dozen names, including Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Florida Senator Rick Scott, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have been floated as possible contenders for the Republican nomination.

On the Democratic side, Biden has stated that he has not yet made an official decision on his re-election bid, but supposedly he intends to do so.

Regardless of whether Biden runs again, Trump may have a hard time landing the Republican nomination for the third consecutive presidential cycle.
