What do you do when you’re 0-for-6 in your attempts to get elected? You run for president, of course. At least that’s apparently the thought process of Hirsh Singh, the perennial candidate known for his endless bids – all of them unsuccessful – for elected office.
Singh, who has vied for numerous positions since 2017, announced that he will be running for the GOP nomination for president in 2024, calling himself the only “pure-blood” candidate in the race because he didn’t get the Covid-19 vaccine.
The 38-year-old, who has faced criticism for living with his parents until recently, has until now strongly aligned himself with former President Donald Trump and the MAGA movement.
Singh’s political history includes runs for governor in 2017, U.S. Senate and Congress in 2018, U.S. Senate in 2020, and governor again in 2021, but he never managed to secure the Republican nomination in any of these races.
In an announcement video, Singh described himself as an “America First constitutional carry and pro-life conservative” who has played a role in revitalizing the conservative wing of New Jersey’s Republican Party since 2017. He expressed concern over what he perceives as an attack on American family values, parental rights, and open debate, and he pledged to reverse these changes and restore American values.
