During a photo-op with Al Sharpton, Biden talked about his political future. Biden told reporters that he’s planning on running for re-election.
He noted that his wife, Jill, has urged him not to walk away from his job.
Despite Biden’s statements, the ongoing speculation about his political future has not stopped. It’s still not clear if he’ll run for president again. Even his allies are skeptical that he’ll be able to serve out the full four-year term.
When he returns to Washington from a Christmas vacation, Biden is expected to talk about his political future with his close friends. If he decides to run for president in 2024, it would be during an incredibly low approval rating and an environment of high inflation.
After the midterm elections, Biden’s standing within his own party improved. He has long been a loyal Democrat, and he vowed to run against Donald Trump if he decides to run for president in 2024. Trump was blamed for the Republicans’ losses in several states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona. In 2024, these areas will be among the most competitive in the country.
During a recent meeting of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile, who was the party’s former chairman, stated that she would not abandon a winning president.
The White House’s political team and Biden’s allies are already preparing for the potential presidential campaign in 2024. They’re planning on launching a campaign in early April. This would allow them to avoid the difficult fundraising period that usually occurs during the first quarter of the year. In 2012, Barack Obama started his second term as president with the help of Biden.
