Joe Biden’s presidency simply isn’t going to plan, and the entire Democratic Party is well aware of that fact – particularly those caught up in tight midterm races where even a few errant gaffes from the Commander in Chief could rattle the confidence of voters.
Things are so bad, in fact, that there are Democratic lawmakers out there already suggesting that they’ll run for the White House in 2024. California Governor Gavin Newsom was the first to make such a claim, adding the caveat that his willingness to run would be based on whether or not Joe Biden chose to give it another shot or not.
But now, an old thorn in the DNC’s side is leaving the door open to the possibility, and it could reinvigorate the Democrat’s disruptive radical left.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday said he hadn’t yet decided whether he will make another bid for the White House.
“That’s a big — you know, I haven’t made that decision,” Sanders said on “CBS Mornings.”
This wouldn’t be the first time that Sanders has attempted to garner the nomination.
Sanders, an Independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats, mounted his first presidential campaign as a Democrat in the 2016 general election, ultimately losing the party’s nomination to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.Advertisement - story continues below
He ran again in the 2020 election cycle but suspended his campaign before the primaries concluded, ceding the Democrats’ nomination to now-President Biden.
Sanders is a favorite among far-left progressives, and has seen his supporters routinely accuse the DNC of actively pursuing ways to keep the Vermont lawmaker off the ballot.
