President Joe Biden has not yet announced that he will run for re-election in 2024. However, he hasn’t shied away from sharing his desire to run for re-election next November.
“[M]y intention is — from– has — intention has been from the beginning to run. But there are too many other things we have to finish in the near term before I start a campaign,” President Joe Biden told David Muir of ABC News during a recent interview.
As the world of politics awaits his official announcement, several members of the Democratic Party have shared their support for the President heading into an election year.
“I do think he should run; I think he will win; I think he’s our strongest candidate,” Congressman Pete Aguilar said.
“Time and time again, you know, he was able to deliver with House Democrats, with Senate Democrats, and so I think that he can and should run and he’s going to have the support of the House Democratic Caucus.”
Even some of the President’s toughest critics within the Democratic Party have shared their support for his potential re-election bid. In 2020, Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders for President. While Biden isn’t her first choice within the Democratic Party, she has maintained her desire to support the Democratic Party in 2024.
“Nobody’s surprised that Biden was not my choice in the first election for the primary,” Jayapal said.
“But the [Congressional Progressive Caucus] and the president and his administration have formed an incredibly strong partnership.”
If President Joe Biden moves forward with his desire to run for re-election, he will likely face little resistance within the Democratic Party. Potential candidates like California Governor Gavin Newsom and Vice President Kamala Harris have indicated that they will not run against Biden. Meanwhile, author Marianne Williamson has launched another longshot campaign within the Democratic Party.
