The story said that Biden’s closest advisers “have quietly undertook extensive preparations for a run, holding regular meetings with the president and first lady in the White House residence since last year.”
Joe Biden will once again get protection on the campaign road from the Democratic National Committee. This time, “Basement Joe,” who was charged by his detractors of avoiding political activities during the Covid epidemic, will be exempt from participating in the Democratic primary debates.
The DNC has no plans to host a primary debate, according to the report in The Post. Some of the contributors said they anticipate being asked to plan future fundraisers for Biden’s reelection, according to the Post. The national Democratic Party has said that it would back Biden’s reelection and that it has no intentions to encourage primary discussions.
This week, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of former president John F. Kennedy, said that he will run as a Democrat in the 2024 election. In his announcement speech, Kennedy said, “Under normal circumstances, I would not do this.” But these aren’t typical conditions. As my nation is taken from me, I watch.
In addition, Marianne Williamson, who ran against Biden in 2020, has said that she will run once again. The Washington Post clarified the DNC’s announcement by stating that Biden is “not expected to face any serious opposition from elected Democrats for the nomination, despite concerns from some in the party about his age and dissatisfaction among some liberals who say he has not pushed their priorities hard enough.”
The 80-year-old Biden, who has avoided press conferences for weeks at a time, delivered an expected State of the Union address late, relied on humiliating crutch materials like notes and instructions, and has taken too many vacations to count, is once more facing a Democratic primary campaign that is blatantly “rigged.”
As the Washington Post noted, “President Biden and his team are preparing to announce his reelection campaign next week, with aides finalizing plans to release a video for the president to officially launch his campaign, according to three people briefed on the plans.”
According to the Post, “Biden and his advisers have targeted Tuesday for the release of the video to coincide with the four-year mark of his 2020 campaign launch.” “Those briefed on the plans, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private deliberations, warned that the official announcement could be delayed.”
Biden has been hinting at his intention to seek re-election for some time, but he hasn’t made an official declaration because he and his staff didn’t feel compelled to do so—especially after the Democrats’ stronger-than-anticipated midterm results quelld chatter of a primary challenge.
The Post’s story also said that two of Biden’s senior advisors, Anita Dunn and Jen O’Malley Dillon, had been “overseeing the reelection efforts, including interviewing staff for top roles.” The electoral landscape has been studied by the Democratic National Committee. The 2016 Democratic primaries were notoriously manipulated by the DNC to favor Hillary Clinton against socialist senator Bernie Sanders. The DNC seems to be supporting Joe Biden once again.
