When is Joe Biden expected to announce his candidacy for 2024?

President Joe Biden will reportedly make the obvious known next week that he is running for re-election in 2024. Here’s what we know about his announcement.

Biden expected to formally announce candidacy for 2024

President Joe Biden when asked time and time again whether he would run again in the 2024 presidential election has said that that is his “intention”. Well now, that intention may be made formal according to sources speaking to the Washington Post.

The date of the formal announcement would be a wink to throwing his hat into the ring in 2019. If it goes ahead as planned, Biden’s announcement to re-enter politics and vie for the White House will come on the four-year anniversary of doing so for the 2020 presidential race.

When is Joe Biden expected to announce his candidacy for 2024?

According to three people with knowledge of the plan, President Biden will make his formal 2024 candidacy announcement on Tuesday next week. The date is sentimental, it was on 25 April 2019 when he said he was getting back into politics and would run for president in what he defined as a “battle for the soul of this nation.”

The people that spoke to the Washington Post cautioned that the official announcement could be delayed. However, too long of a delay could push back the announcement until sometime in June. He has trips planned to Japan and Australia in May. He also has to negotiate with Republicans over raising the debt ceiling before the US hits the ‘X Date’, when the US would default on its financial obligations, expected by June.

Presidential announcement starts fundraising push

There hasn’t been much pressure on the President to formally announce what has been a forgone conclusion after the Democratic Party did much better in the Mid-term Elections than had been predicted. While he enters the race with two challengers on the Democratic ticket, neither have experience in elected office.

They are Marianne Williamson who ran in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race and Robert F Kennedy Jr, who is an anti-vaccine activist and son of former Attorney General and Senator Bobby Kennedy. The Democratic Party is putting its full support behind Biden and doesn’t plan to sponsor primary debates.

The Friday after Biden’s 2024 candidacy announcement, his team has organized an event with between 50 to 100 of the party’s top fundraisers and campaign fund bundlers. The idea is to rally support and energize contributions.
