On the weekend after the presidential election in November I took a bet at 250/1 with Ladbrokes that Jon Ossoff would win the 2024 the next White House race. This was a wild longshot based on the impressions I had got of him during his campaign for the Senate seat in Georgia. It will be recalled that he had got close enough in November for it to be run off in January which turned out to be a gain for his party.
As a result of winning both Georgia run-offs it is now 50-50 in the Senate with VP, Kamala Harris, having the casting vote
What struck me about Ossoff then which has been reinforced ever since has been strong performances on TV. He looks and sound very impressive indeed and has built up a fair amount of public recognition.
His Tweet above sends out powerful messages that should resonate in a country that has been created by immigration.
Everything about WH2024 depends on whether Biden decides to go for a second term. If he doesn’t then I can see the primary being between Harris, Buttigieg and Ossoff.
He’s worth a punt at long odds.
