Michigan Gov Whitmer Shuts Down 2024 Presidential Run Rumors Amid Biden Criticism

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, best known for her strict lockdown measures and controversial handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, has finally broken her silence on the speculation surrounding a potential run for the Democratic presidential ticket in 2024 as a replacement for President Joe Biden. This comes as President Biden continues to face criticism for his lackluster debate performance against former President Donald Trump.

During an interview with The Associated Press focused on promoting her upcoming book release, Whitmer firmly shut down any rumors of her stepping into the presidential race if Biden were to step down. She emphasized her commitment to governing Michigan and supporting the current Democratic ticket, despite growing concerns about Biden’s electability and performance.

Whitmer, a staunch advocate for abortion rights, has been vocal about her concerns regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, warning that a second term for Trump could lead to further restrictions on abortion. While addressing the speculation about her presidential aspirations, Whitmer dismissed reports suggesting she had called Biden’s campaign manager to express doubts about his chances of winning Michigan after the debate debacle.

The governor’s name has been floated alongside other prominent Democratic figures as a potential replacement for Biden, including Vice President Kamala Harris, California Governor Gavin Newsom, and Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker. Polling data post-debate indicates a widening lead for Trump over Biden, with growing skepticism among Democratic voters about the president’s ability to secure reelection. 


Reports suggest that Biden himself has expressed doubts about his chances of victory, prompting calls from prominent Democrats for him to step aside and make way for a new candidate. Business leaders and donors have also expressed reluctance to support Biden’s campaign, signaling a broader lack of enthusiasm for his candidacy within the Democratic Party.

As the speculation around Whitmer’s political ambitions continues to swirl, it remains to be seen whether she will emerge as a viable alternative to Biden for the Democratic ticket in 2024. With the political landscape shifting and concerns about Biden’s candidacy mounting, Whitmer’s decision to focus on her current role as governor of Michigan may provide some clarity on her future aspirations in national politics.
