The United States presidential election of 2024 was the 60th quadrennial Presidential Election. Republican Nikki Haley, former Governor of South Carolina and 2016 Vice Presidential nominee, defeated Democrat John Hickenlooper, Vice President from Colorado. Former Governor Haley was only the second woman elected president, and the first Indian-American; also notable, the Haley/Carson ticket was the first nominated and elected ticket of any major party to be entirely non-white (Vice Presidential nominee Ben Carson from Maryland was African-American). The selected electors from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia voted for President and Vice President of the United States on December 12, 2024. Those votes were tallied before a joint session of Congress on January 8, 2025. Haley received 292 electoral votes, and Hickenlooper 242.
Vice President Hickenlooper was the presumptive nominee from the very beginning. Liberal Keith Ellison, elected to the Senate from Illinois in 2022, and previously a House member for several years, was his only challenger; Senator Ellison withdrew after the Iowa caucus. In summer, Hickenlooper chose veteran Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar as his running mate, and the pair were officially nominated at the Democratic National Convention in August.
