Lincoln Project Founder Says Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is Frontrunner for 2024 GOP Nomination – By Matthew Impelli – One of the founders of the Lincoln Project said on Friday that he believes Fox News’ Tucker Carlson will be the Republican party’s frontrunner for the 2024 presidential nomination.

While appearing on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, Steve Schmidt spoke about the ongoing presidential election and how he thinks things could fare in the coming years.

“Look, we have almost 48 percent of this country that’s voted for a statist, authoritarian movement with fascistic markers that’s hostile to American democracy, to the rule of law — that venerates an individual, that’s a cult of personality,” Schmidt said. “I think that Tucker Carlson is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in 2024.”
