Look for former President Donald Trump, the only declared 2024 presidential candidate, to begin making campaign speeches later this month.

Insiders said that he would then begin hosting rallies in February, maybe one a month, ramping up to a busier campaign schedule by late spring.


They are hoping to overcome what some viewed as a lack-luster opening to his campaign.

But with Trump getting credit from incoming House Speaker Kevin McCarthy for helping him win the post, Trump’s allies see a “sweet opening” to hit the trail and prove recent polls that he remains the most influential Republican on the political stage.

  • Fox Business host Larry Kudlow’s show won the ratings race in 2022, his first full year since returning to TV. Kudlow averaged 313,000 viewers, helping Fox beat CNBC. It was followed by Fox’s Varney & Co. as the next highest-rated show in the business news space. “I am extremely proud of what my team accomplished in 2022, a difficult year because of Biden policy mistakes that led to major disappointments on inflation, the economy and stocks. We kept up strong coverage with a solid array of key guests,” said Kudlow. He added, “I look forward to continuing this coverage, bringing my free enterprise view of the American economy to help hard working men and women across this great country. Our success, and the success throughout the entire FOX Business Network, is a great blessing.”


  • Congress is experiencing a youth movement, sort of. The Millennial Action Project told Secrets that there is a 40% increase in millennial and Generation Z members in the new Congress. Overall, there are 89 millennials ages 45 or younger and one Gen Zer. In the last Congress, there were 66 millennial members ages 45 and younger.
