Unfortunately for the Democratic Party, it appears as though their incumbent President would like another shot at the White House in 2024.
Joe Biden, perhaps the most bumbling Commander in Chief our nation has ever seen, is set to announce his candidacy for reelection, perhaps as early as next week.
President Joe Biden will formally announce his 2024 reelection campaign as soon as next week, three people briefed on the discussions said Thursday.
The people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said they were not aware that a final decision on timing had been made, but that Biden had been eyeing Tuesday, April 25, four years to the day since the Democrat entered the 2020 race. The upcoming announcement is expected to be in the form of a video released to supporters.
Biden, 80, has repeatedly said he intends to run for a second term but advisers say he has felt little need to jump into campaigning because he faces no significant opposition to his party’s nomination.
There are plenty of concerns among Democrats regarding his fitness for office, however.
The president, already the oldest person ever elected the job, will also need to contend with voter concerns about his fitness for the job. He has brushed aside those concerns, telling voters to “watch me,” and aides say he plans to mount a robust campaign ahead of what they expect to be a close general election owing to the country’s polarization, no matter who emerges as the GOP standard-bearer.
Of course, there are also number issues with Vice President Kamala Harris, (namely the complete lack of progress that she can point to as far as implementing her policies are concerned), leaving many to wonder if Biden would be able to replace her on the ticket without causing in internal conflict within the party.
