The 2024 elections are closer than they seem and some people are ramping up their efforts to run for office. The Presidential election is always the most anticipated and one Democratic Governor just made a major announcement about his bid.
This news is huge.
Two individuals with knowledge of Newsom’s plans told TheWrap that Newsom is “undeniably, unequivocally” planning to run for president in 2024 if Biden does not seek another term.
A leading California fundraiser with close ties to the Newsom family said. “After this midterm election is over, he absolutely is going to announce that he is running for the presidency once Biden announces that he is not running,”. “No ifs, ands or buts. He will run if Biden does not.”
It all depends on Biden, so all Democratic candidates are planning and waiting. In light of that, Newsom is prepared if Biden does not run. The President danced around the subject in a recent interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes.
According to CNBC, a Wall Street executive they did not name, who secured money for Biden in 2020, said Newsom and Vice President Kamala Harris are in the process of lining up big donors. According to some, Newsom was expected to run.
Although Newsom has said he is not interested in running, Top Democratic Strategists say everything changes if Biden does not run. According to The Western Journal. Joseph Cotchett, a top Democratic donor and longtime friend of Newsom and Biden, said last month that Newsom will be ready if Biden bows out.
The race for President is going to be very interesting, especially because no one can officially plan anything until President Biden makes his announcement. If Newsom does throw his hat in the ring it’s anyone’s guess as to who will challenge him. Do you think Biden will run again? Do you think Newsom has a chance if he doesn’t?
