Joe Biden is the presumptive favorite to secure the Democratic Party’s nomination for President in the upcoming election. While author Marianne Williamson and lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have launched campaigns within the Democratic Party, the Delaware native is expected to be the runaway victor once primary election season begins. With that said, one federal lawmaker continues to think about tossing his name in the hate of potential challengers to the President.
During a recent interview, U.S. Representative Dean Phillips of Minnesota told The Warning Host Steve Schmidt that he is “thinking about” running for President. However, he readily admits that he wouldn’t be the best adversary for the President within the Democratic Party.
“I am thinking about it. I haven’t ruled it out,” Phillips said.
“I think there are people who are more proximate, better prepared to campaign with national organizations, national name recognition, which I do not possess.”
This is not the first time that Phillips has teased a potential run at the Oval Office. Back in July, he said that he was thinking about running for President, but hadn’t come to a definitive conclusion. Throughout that period, he has repeatedly called on other members of his party to run against Biden.
“I’m concerned that something could happen between now and next November that would make the Democratic Convention in Chicago an unmitigated disaster,” he explained.
Despite Phillips’ pleas, no other major Democratic candidate appears interested in running against the President. Vice President Kamala Harris, California Governor Gavin Newsom and several others have elected not to run next November.
