President Joe Biden has not yet announced his decision regarding a potential second term in 2024, which has caused potential Democratic contenders and party supporters to prepare for a primary election. Initially, the President was supposed to reveal his decision in February, but his aides now anticipate a delay until April. Despite the assurance of those close to him that he will run, some members of the party are uncertain.
And add to this, we should listen to old man Bernie Sanders saying he will support Biden if he runs again and is AGHAST at Nikki Haley's suggestion these old guys/gals should have competency tests before they can run? They ALL need to go if they are too brain impaired to govern.… https://t.co/pvidwVr5ra

Democratic strategist Mark Longabaugh expressed to Politico that he believes President Biden cannot delay his decision until the summer. While allies of the President have emphasized that he is concentrating on his current presidency and only discussing polling data with advisors. His delay has caused concern among those in his inner circle, as they worry that waiting too long for his decision could leave the party in a challenging position if he ultimately chooses not to run.
In the event that President Biden decides not to run, Vice President Kamala Harris would likely receive significant attention, although many Democratic officials may prefer an alternative candidate. This has led top Democrats, including Illinois Governor JB Pritzker, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, to remain undecided and keep their options open.
The president’s indecisiveness has left many in the Democratic party feeling uncertain and anxious. As the months pass, the pressure will continue to mount for Biden to make a decision. Until then, potential hopefuls and donors will remain on edge, waiting for an answer that could shape the future of the party.
