There are many future leaders in the Republican Party that will likely on to lead the party in Congress or the Senate or even become vice president or president in the future. Often the leaders of the party, and the country, come from the ranks of members of Congress, Senators, and the various governors of the states.
While governors are believed to be more likely to be elected president, that is always the case. Current president, Barack Obama, served in the senate immediately before running for the presidency. George W. Bush was serving his second term as governor of Texas in 2000 when he ran for president. Of the previous nine presidents before Obama, four were governors, four were vice president, and one as senator before becoming president.
One vice president, George W. Bush, ran for president while serving as vice president and was elected in 1988, after serving two terms as vice president under Ronald Reagan. Jerry Ford and Lyndon Johnson became president because of the resignation of Richard Nixon and the assassination of John F. Kennedy, respectively. Nixon lost the 1960 election as sitting vice president, but came back to win the 1968 election to become president.
