Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is leading the race to be first choice for the position of health care secretary.
However, there are at least seven other candidates vying to be on the stage, with two vying to fill the position outright.
A former doctor, retired Lt.
Gen. Michael Flynn, announced his candidacy in August, while New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie, who is also a former Trump campaign surrogate, is seeking to join the race.
Former Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) also announced his campaign.
Below is a list of the potential candidates, as well as the potential positions they would fill: • New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: Christie, 71, is a longtime advocate of a single-payer health care system, which would eliminate most government spending and provide all Americans with the same level of care.
He also believes a single payer plan is the only way to solve the nation’s problems.
Christie also served as the top Republican and Democratic official in Congress during the Obama administration, and is a leading advocate for health care reform.
He has said that Trump’s recent comments about health care were inappropriate and that he would have a private conversation with the president about the matter.
General Michael Flynn: Flynn, who served as a top military adviser to President Donald Trump, has not held public office since retiring in 2015.
But he has served as Trump’s national security adviser since January, and has been a vocal supporter of the president.
Flynn has also defended the president’s attacks on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, saying Trump is “a racist.”
Flynn, 61, said the President “is an embarrassment to the United Kingdom, which is not exactly a fan of his.”
• Wisconsin Gov.
Scott Walker: Walker, 71.
Walker has been Trump’s campaign manager since August, and he has a long record of backing the president on social issues, including the legalization of marijuana and his opposition to abortion rights.
He’s also been a staunch opponent of the Affordable Care Act, and said that while he doesn’t believe it is constitutional, Trump should resign if he believes it is unconstitutional.
• New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo: Cuomo, who has been in the White House for nearly 30 years, has a history of being a vocal opponent of Trump, including a number of remarks in the past that have drawn criticism from conservatives.
He is the longest-serving governor in New York state and has served in office since 2002.
He supports single payers, has said he believes the president is unfit for office, and believes he should be impeached.
• U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May: May, 61.
She has been the British prime minister since May 2015 and is considered a moderate Conservative.
May was elected to Parliament in a landslide victory in 2015 and has a number plans for her first term.
However to date, she has been largely quiet on the issue of Trump’s remarks.
• Indiana Gov.
Mike Pence: Pence, 62, is considered an independent conservative who is considered moderate by most in the Republican Party.
He recently announced that he will run for president.
Pence has also previously been critical of Trump.
He wrote in a column published on Wednesday in the Indianapolis Star that Trump is unfit to serve as president, and should be removed from office.
• Louisiana Gov.
John Bel Edwards: Edwards, 64, is one of the most outspoken critics of Trump and has said repeatedly that the president “is a racist and a bigot” and should “get the hell out of our country.”
He has also said that the country has to be united in opposition to Trump.
• Virginia Gov.
Ralph Northam: Northam, 58, is an independent Democrat who is in the midst of a tight race against Lt.
candidate Jill Vogel.
He said on Tuesday that he believes Trump is a racist, and that the U.N. has no authority to intervene in U.L.C. He will be vying for the seat in a Democratic primary.
• Former Pennsylvania Gov.
Ed Rendell: Rendell, 56, was one of several Republicans who endorsed Trump before the November election.
He was a strong supporter of Trump during the campaign and has not publicly criticized him.
Rendell said during an interview with MSNBC on Sunday that Trump needs to resign and that his position is not “that of an independent.”
• California Gov.
Gavin Newsom: Newsom, 63, was a Democrat and governor from Los Angeles before he was elected governor in 2020.
He served as one of Trump the most prominent surrogate in the 2016 campaign.
Newsom is also the first openly gay governor of California.
He endorsed Trump after the November presidential election, and told MSNBC that Trump has “absolutely no credibility” and “does not have a mandate to be in the Oval Office.”
