(TheRedAlertNews.com) – HAPPENING NOW: According to several news sources, President Joe Biden is set to pull the trigger on his reelection campaign as early as Tuesday.
Specifically, based on reporting by The Washington Post, Biden is planning to announce his reelection campaign for a second term next week, according to insiders. Although his official announcement could be delayed, Biden’s team is reportedly preparing a video to launch the campaign on Tuesday, the fourth anniversary of his 2020 campaign launch.
Biden has hinted at running for a second term, but his official announcement has been repeatedly delayed.
This is partly because his administration did not feel rushed to begin a new campaign, especially after the Democrats’ better-than-expected midterm results reduced the possibility of a primary challenge.
Key advisers, such as Anita Dunn and Jen O’Malley Dillon, have been preparing for the reelection campaign, including interviewing staff for top positions.
The timing of the announcement has been debated within Biden’s inner circle.
An earlier announcement would allow him to start raising money for the campaign while waiting would let him appear above the political fray as Republicans compete for their party’s nomination.
If Biden wins a second term, he will be 86 years old at the end of it, making him the oldest president in U.S. history.
The Justice Department is investigating both President Biden’s handling of classified information and his son, Hunter Biden, for potential tax and gun crimes.
Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump, who is also running for reelection, faces investigations into his handling of classified documents and his role in efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
Biden plans to meet with top Democratic donors in Washington next week to energize contributors and rally support.
The national Democratic Party has stated that it will support Biden’s reelection and does not plan to sponsor primary debates. While some Democrats are concerned about his age and liberal dissatisfaction with his policies, Biden is not expected to face serious opposition from elected Democrats.
In his first term, President Biden oversaw the country’s recovery from the worst phase of the coronavirus pandemic, passed a significant economic stimulus package, and signed a $1 trillion infrastructure bill and legislation aimed at combating climate change and reducing drug costs. He also managed an uneven economic recovery marked by persistent inflation and is preparing for a tense battle with House Republicans over the debt ceiling.
On the foreign policy front, Biden ordered the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, ending the 20-year war there. He has also been a global leader in strengthening alliances and rallying support for Ukraine against Russia’s invasion.
For the upcoming campaign, Biden’s advisers plan a more aggressive approach to organizing volunteers and sharing digital content on social media platforms where political advertising is prohibited.
The Biden team has also recruited a national advisory board of Democratic governors, senators, and other political stars who will campaign on his behalf to minimize dissent or criticism from within his party.
