Dear Commons Community,
President Biden during his first press conference yesterday (see video clip above) said that he plans to seek reelection in 2024.
“My plan is to run for reelection,” Biden told reporters during his first formal press conference as president. “That is my expectation.”
Biden said that he “would fully expect” Vice President Kamala Harris to be his running mate.
Asked whether he expects to face Trump in another general election campaign, Biden demurred.
“I have no idea,” Biden said. “I have no idea if there will be a Republican Party.”
Earlier, Biden explained why he has not yet filed paperwork for a reelection campaign like his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, did on his first day in office.
“My predecessor needed to,” Biden said, laughing. “My predecessor — oh God, I miss him.”
Run, Joe, Run!
