Biden ‘planning on running’ in 2024 election – but won’t ‘announce it yet’

President Joe Biden confirmed that he would run for reelection in 2024.

On Monday, Mr Biden, age 80, stated that he intends to run for President in 2024.

He said, “I plan to run… but we are not ready to announce it yet” in an interview with Sky News’ US partner channel NBC.

According to NBC, both Mr Biden as well as Vice President Kamala Harris said that they would run together. White House advisers will make final decisions about launching the reelection campaign.


One source said to NBC that while the decision is complete, he resents being forced to make public announcements about what he has already made.

This follows a series of hints by the president that he would run for a second term at the White House.

Last month Mr Biden joked that he’s looking for a “back to back” term.

First lady Jill Biden stated that her husband intended to run for re-election. She stated that there was “pretty much nothing left to do” except to work out the date and time.

There is no challenger to the Democratic party at the moment and the Indictment of Donald Trump dominated the political spotlight.

Biden is re-running because of two factors

It’s Washington’s worst kept secret: Joe Biden is a candidate for the presidency again.

He has said it before, in public and private, and he repeated it today.

It is unclear at what time he will make the official announcement.

His team is looking for a window that doesn’t distract from the task at hand. There are some distractions at the moment.

* Trump’s indicted predecessor (and possible challenger) Donald Trump has been taking the political spotlight.

* There is a clash with Republicans about spending.

* He is in Ireland and the UK this Week.

He needs to have a clear window in which to announce his plans and then be able to ride the momentum that he anticipates. But how much momentum is there?

Despite the fact that Democrats consider his first term to have been a success, his approval rating is still low at 38% according to NBC News’ late March poll.

His main problem is his age. In November, he turned 80. He would be 80 if he ran and won, and 86 at his end of the second term if he didn’t.

This is a major Republican attack point, and it’s a concern also for Democrats.

Two key factors are crucial to Mr Biden’s success. He believes that he still has a lot to do and that he beat Donald Trump last year. He believes he can do it again on that basis.

The First Lady is also a factor that President Biden values. Biden said that Jill, his wife, would provide him with guidance and counsel in his decision-making. She is believed to want him to run again.

Another advisor to Mr Biden said to NBC that the delay “preserves the option not to run”.

Concerns have been raised previously about Mr Biden’s health, as he will be 86 at his second term.

Although the delay is apparent, there are certain factors that could influence when his candidacy announcement will be made. These include the need to raise money for the campaign.
