New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, predicted on Monday that one of two things will stop President Joe Biden from being the Democratic nominee for president in 2024.
“I’m not saying it’s definitely going to happen, but I think there’s a greater than 50 percent chance he’s not on the ballot come November of ’24,” he told Fox News host Sandra Smith.
“Either he’s going to go through the primary process effectively unchallenged,” Sununu said. “A year from now, he’s going to collect all the delegates. His health is not going to be good. He can always use that as a reason to step out and basically tell all of his delegates to go for somebody else and kind of be the kingmaker. It wouldn’t be unheard of for the Democrats to try to manipulate their convention that way. They’ve done that before.”
Sununu then predicted that the other way Biden could go down in the primaries is that he’ll end up getting primaried by a successful businessman.
“The other opportunity is somebody comes in this fall,” Sununu said. “Now, I think if an opponent were to challenge him this fall, it’s probably going to be a self-funder. It’s probably going to be somebody with a little bit of name ID nationally and maybe even someone who isn’t a politician.”
“I don’t think any of the Democratic governors are going to stand up and do it this fall,” he continued. “They’re probably just hoping to be coronated by Joe and Jill Biden next summer. But I’m predicting probably at least one, if not two people still jump in this fall, challenge him right here in New Hampshire, and make a run at it.”
Only time will tell if Biden will be the Democratic nominee in 2024. However, Sununu’s comments suggest that he is facing some significant challenges.
