Another Prominent Democrat Publicly Says 'No' to Biden '24 Run

The great Democratic Civil War of 2022 is heating up once again this week, and it’s beginning to become a bit of a public nuisance for Joe Biden and his White House team.

The most recent symptom of the massive divide within the party comes as a heated debate over Joe Biden’s potential 2024 reelection campaign continues to simmer.  The realists in the party have no problem looking at the President’s record and his approval ratings and suggesting that Sleepy Joe was nothing more than a stopgap solution to dealing with Donald Trump.

But Biden and his press team have continually suggested that he’ll be running again in ’24, prompting a number of prominent Democrats to go public in their opposition to the idea.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) member Steve Simeonidis said Monday night on CNN that President Biden shouldn’t run for reelection because of his low approval rating and because people will be looking for a “change candidate” in 2024.

CNN’s Erin Burnett noted that Simeonidis is a supporter of President Biden but asked why he doesn’t believe the president should run for reelection. The member of the DNC praised the president’s actions on ghost guns, the infrastructure bill, and his efforts in Ukraine.

“The problem is, he’s not and his administration is not effectively communicating those wins, which is part of the reason you’re seeing his approval rating hover in the thirties,” he said.

Others were chiming in as well.

Burnett pressed further, noting comments by David Axelrod that were included in the Times article, headlined, “Should Biden Run in 2024? Democratic Whispers of ‘No’ Start to Rise.”

“The presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue,” Axelrod told the New York Times.

Even progressive cheerleader and House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had trouble citing her support for Joe Biden’s potential reelection campaign this week, dancing around a rather direct question about it just days ago.
