Bush), runs for president against the Democratic candidate Mark Warner, senator of Virginia. Bush capitalized on a good economy, a stable international stage, and on President Marco Rubio's popularity, running an aggressive campaign.

This allowed Bush to win with a substantial margin of the popular vote; while winning the Electoral College by a landslide.

After the Andrew Cuomo's loss to President Marco Rubio in 2020, Al Franken was for a long time the favorite for leading the Democratic Party in 2024. But he's victim of health troubles, so he drops down his eventual candidacy. So there was no clear favorite for now.
