The United States presidential election of 2024 was the 60th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 5, 2024. Incumbent President John Kasich of Ohio was ineligible to seek a third term as president. Instead, Vice President Marco Rubio of Florida and running mate Secretary Of The Treasury Carly Fiorina defeated Democratic Party nominee Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and running mate Former Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Illinois.
The incumbent vice president, Marco Rubio, announced he'd be running for president toward the end of Kasich's final term. Many Republicans endorsed the idea, but others did not. Rubio was challenged by George P. Bush, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. However he easily defeated them all. Rubio chose Secretary Of The Treasury Carly Fiorina as his his running mate.
Bernie Sanders was happy to announce he'd be running again after his surge in 2016. He narrowly beat Former Ambassador Caroline Kennedy for the nomination. However many feared he may have missed his window and that he wouldn't be as popular this season.

The election was very close with both candidates being very popular. However, by campaigning on Kasich's popularity, and by pointing out that Sanders was too old, Rubio won the election. This was the first election when a Latino was elected president, and the first where a female was elected Vice President.
