This week, Yahoo News, The Hill, and Washington Examiner reported on American Bridge’s presidential research team’s work to prepare for the 2024 presidential cycle earlier than ever before. Already, the American Bridge presidential team has hired more than a dozen research staffers, including media monitoring and tracking staff in key primary states.
Our presidential targets include Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Ron DeSantis, Kristi Noem, Tim Scott, Larry Hogan, Liz Cheney, among others. You can learn more about our presidential targets here. American Bridge’s research team has already been at work for months shaping the conversation surrounding our targets.

Yahoo News: Dem opposition group targets wide field of 21 Republicans for ’24 battle
Tom LoBianco | 10/24/2022
“The Democrats’ largest opposition research group, which tracks stunning candidate comments and monitors the expansive world of conservative media, has hired a new presidential research director and a squad of more than a dozen researchers as it gets ready for the 2024 race, which is expected to start in earnest in just a few weeks.
And the field they’re tracking is the most expansive in modern memory. Top targets for the Democratic trackers include the de facto frontrunner, former President Donald Trump, and his chief competition, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. But they’re also watching ‘Never Trump’ Republicans who have toyed with a run, including Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan. And a handful of governors who have flown under the radar, including Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas and Greg Abbott of Texas.”

“American Bridge’s 2024 presidential research operation will be led by Julie Alderman Boudreau, who previously led advocacy research at Planned Parenthood Action Fund. The organization has more than a dozen research staffers on hand to help sift through material and news articles related to the nearly two dozen identified GOP officials.”
Washington Examiner: List: 21 Republicans possibly set to battle for the presidency in 2024
Cami Mondeaux | 10/24/2022
“In total, the list contains eight governors, seven senators, five former officeholders (including Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence), and one House Republican. The contenders were chosen based on actions taken by the possible candidates, including campaigning for midterm candidates in early-vote states, hiring political staff members, and attempting to garner national headlines.”
The 2024 GOP primary field promises to be the most extreme, messy, and radical in US history — and American Bridge is already working to hold, what could be a crowded and highly competitive field, accountable long before they have even announced their campaigns.”
