Former President Donald Trump is set to kick off his 2024 White House bid on Saturday with visits to a pair of early voting states, his first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.
Trump will be the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire GOP’s annual meeting before traveling to Columbia, South Carolina, where he is set to introduce his state leadership team.
New Hampshire and South Carolina hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

“The gun is fired, and the campaign season has started,” said Stephen Stepanek, outgoing chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party who served as co-chair of Trump’s 2016 campaign in the state.
In South Carolina, Gov. Henry McMaster, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, and several members of the state’s congressional delegation plan to attend Saturday’s event at the Statehouse.
On Saturday, Trump said on Truth Social, “Heading to New Hampshire now. Nice NH poll just out — beating everybody by a lot, and nationally, leading by almost 40 points. See you at the White House!”
An Emerson College survey released earlier this week showed Trump leading President Biden in a hypothetical head-to-head match-up by 3 points.
The same poll also showed Trump holding a 26-point lead over DeSantis in a hypothetical Republican primary.
