It seems the only person who hasn’t announced President Joe Biden’s bid for reelection is President Joe Biden.
First lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre have all stated with little room for interpretation that the Big Guy will be running again in 2024, despite the fact that he has yet to officially declare his candidacy.
That, says the Committee to Defeat the President (“The Committee”), a conservative Political Action Committee aimed at “stopping Joe,” is a problem — one that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) needs to address.
In a letter to the FEC, The Committee provides a host of “supplemental support for the fact Biden is a 2024 presidential candidate” and argues that, as such, Biden must provide “specific filings and amendments.”
As proof of Biden’s candidacy, The Committee points to a recent CNN exclusive interview with Harris, who “makes clear that Biden is running for President in 2024.”
“Specifically,” The Committee writes, “she states ‘Joe Biden is running for re-election and I will be his ticket mate. . . . Full stop. That’s it.'”

“Vice President Harris’ appearance at the CNN exclusive further constitutes an expenditure of funds (i.e., travel, hair, make-up, clothing) to convey a clear message to the general public about President Biden’s candidacy in the 2024 election,” the group contends.
The Committee went on to list several instances in which Jean-Pierre left little room for doubt over the president’s intentions.
“‘So, the President intends to run in 2024. We are a long ways away from that. I cannot get into specifics of any political — political election polling because I am behind this podium,'” they quote her as saying on one occasion.
“He intends to run,” she reportedly insisted on another. “He intends to run.”
In all, The Committee cited seven times Jean-Pierre made such a statement.

And she wasn’t alone. Other top Biden aides have made similar comments.
The Committee notes:
Biden’s senior advisor, Anita Dunn, has also stated Biden intends to run for President in 2024. Specifically, she told the press “the president has said he’s planning on running again. People should take him at his word.”
Cedric Richmond, a former White House official has also definitively said Biden will run for President in 2024. Specifically, Mr. Richmond stated “[h]e’s running and we’re building an infrastructure for him to run and win,” and “[r]ight now, it’s all an early investment in 2024 while
we’re helping 2022.”
“Biden also joined a toast to his 2024 presidential campaign with President Emmanuel Macron of France at a White House state dinner after Jill Biden told Mr. Macron that ‘she and her husband are ready for his re-election campaign,'” the group notes.
Speaking to the Associated Press in Nairobi as she wrapped up a five-day trip to Africa, Jill Biden made clear her husband’s resolve to run in 2024.
“Is there any reason for any of us to think that he is not running again?” the reporter asked.
“Are you not believing this?” the first lady snapped back. “I mean, how many times does he have it until you believe it?”
“He says he’s not done,” Jill added. “He’s not finished what he’s started. And that’s what’s important.”
“All of these statements are further, supplemental support for the fact Biden is a 2024 presidential candidate,” The Committee argues, “thus necessitating specific filings and amendments—filings and amendments he has continued to fail to make.”
“Additionally,” the group continues, “while Biden’s campaign committee, Biden for President (the ‘Campaign’) made a purely technical amendment to FEC Form 1 on August 30, 2022, the Campaign has no debt, and thus, no purpose for existing other than to be an authorized campaign committee of a candidate.”
“The very existence of the Campaign further supports the fact Biden is a 2024 presidential candidate,” The Committee charges. “Therefore, the Federal Election Commission should cease its unreasonable delay in the face of such blatant illegality and promptly bring enforcement proceedings against Biden; the Campaign; Andrea Wise, in her official capacity as Treasurer of the Campaign; Biden Victory Fund; and Joseph W. Smolskis, in his official capacity as Treasurer for Biden Victory Fund.”
