Joe Biden’s 2024 announcement for the presidency is expected as early as Tuesday, according to a report from the New York Times.
“Biden is nearing a final decision to formally enter the 2024 presidential race as early as Tuesday, with a video to announce his run already in production, according to four people with knowledge of the plans,” the outlet wrote.
Biden said during his trip to Ireland last week that his announcement for the White House would come “relatively soon.”
However, Biden “has not yet given final approval to the announcement plan, according to one person with knowledge of the discussions,” the Times notes.
At 80, Biden is the oldest person ever to occupy the White House, and if elected in 2024, he would finish that term at the age of 86.
“Mr. Biden has already summoned donors to Washington next week, inviting those who have given at least $1 million to a two-day gathering starting on Friday. The event, which is not a fund-raiser, is intended to rally his army of bundlers and donors ahead of a 2024 campaign that is likely to top more than $1 billion, including super PAC spending,” the report concluded.
Biden faces two opponents so far in the Democrat primary, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, and author Marianne Williamson, who ran unsuccessfully in 2020 for the White House.
