Who will be on the Democratic ticket in the 2024 Presidential race? It’s a hot topic for conversation right now. Will Joe Biden seek a 2nd term, and if he does will he keep Kamala Harris as a running mate? Will Biden’s Party want him to seek a 2nd term? If he doesn’t, who will fill that gap?
There has been speculation about the possibility of the vice president running herself for the presidency if the decision is made for Biden not to run. Some of the mystery has been resolved with a recent interview that Vice President Harris has done this past weekend.
Harris revealed that she would “proudly” run on a ticket alongside President Joe Biden in 2024. This should quiet some of the chatter about the reelection viability of President Biden.
Kamala Harris was a guest on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this weekend. She told host Chuck Todd that she was “very proud” to serve as Biden’s vice president and she reaffirmed her commitment to the White House administration. She hopes that the administration can secure another term in the White House.
Harris said, “The president has been very clear that he intends to run again. And if he does, I will be running with him proudly.” And Biden has been saying for months now that he intends to run for a 2nd term if he remains in good health.
But voters have expressed uneasiness regarding the state of the economy, and they have been critical of the president’s leadership on issues from gas prices to his policy on immigration and other border issues.
Heaped on top of all that is concern over Biden’s age. He is turning 80 years old in November. That means that he would be 82 at his January inauguration in 2025.
All eyes will be on Biden and Harris after the midterms. Will they launch their next campaign for a 2nd term, or will the Party slam the hammer down and create a new ticket?
