Gavin Newsom made a big announcement regarding his potential 2024 presidential run.
Newsom spoke on the matter with Politico, explaining that he would wait to see what Joe Biden’s decision was and that he would fully back the sitting president should Biden choose to run in 2024.
Newsom said that he has made his stance clear after speculation in the White House was looming over whether he would challenge Joe Biden.
I’ve told everyone in the White House, from the chief of staff to the first lady.
He also told them in no uncertain words that he will support the president in his campaign for a second term.
I’m all in, count me in.
While Republicans have voiced concern for years now about the mental acuity and overall health of Joe Biden, concern over his condition has been growing in the Democratic Party as well. This has led to a growing number of voters in blue states wondering if a potential Gavin Newsom-led ticket may be appearing soon on the horizon.
Following the abysmal performance in the midterm elections by Republicans, it seems that Joe Biden is the horse that the Democratic Party is ready to bet the house on.
Newsom even went so far as to say that he is confident in Joe Biden’s ability to beat Donald Trump should both meet again on the final ballot.
He not only beat Trump once, I think he can beat him again. I hope he runs, I’ll enthusiastically support him.
Those are strong words from the current Governor of California, a state which seems to serve as a model of the Democrat’s ideals.
While large amounts of people are leaving California, there are also huge numbers of families and individuals who choose to stay and live their lives in the Golden State. Many of them even seem to support Newsom, which is exactly what makes him a potential future torchbearer for the Democrats.
Newsom even told Politico that he will not consider a 2024 run even in the event that Biden steps away from politics.
Newsom was the subject of a recall in California and had to re-win his Governorship over the state in 2021. This seems to have done little, however, to quell his political ambitions further into the future.
He made no effort to dissuade reporters when asked about his potential candidacy in 2028.
While it is still not a formality, it is like that Biden will announce his bid for reelection in 2024 sooner rather than later.
Here is what he had to say on the matter, according to Fox News.
I think everybody wants me to run, but we’re going to have discussions about it. I hope Jill and I get a little time to sneak away for a week between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and my guess is it will be early next year when we make that judgment.
