Political commentator Alice Stewart has made an interesting prediction; Republican politicians will begin to say "Let's stop focusing on the past" (Donald Trump's loss in 2020 and associated angsts) after certain filing deadlines pass.
Speaking of primaries, there's also the factor that many are keeping in the back of their minds - they realize that if they stick their head too far out of the foxhole they're going to be knocked down by Donald Trump.
So mark my word, after the filing deadlines in a lot of these states when people realize "hey, I don't have a primary opponent and Donald Trump can not put one in against me", then we're going to see, I believe, a lot more people coming out and saying "Let's stop talking about the past, and let's start talking about the future." And that's going to happen after these filing deadlines.
