Former presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) stated Sunday that President Joe Biden will run for reelection in 2024, and she will be supporting him.
As previously reported, Biden has told former President Barack Obama that he does plan to run in 2024, claiming he is the only person who can beat former President Donald Trump, according to sources familiar with the conversation. But, with devastating approval ratings, soaring inflation, and cognitive abilities that have repeatedly been called into question, many have wondered if Biden, who will turn 80 in November, will attempt to stay in the White House for a second term.
But for Warren, there can be no doubt of the President’s intent.
In an interview with guest host Kristen Walker on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Warren said, “You can ask it any way you want, but I’m going to say the same thing: President Biden is running in 2024 and I’m supporting him.”

Still, there is speculation that both Warren and, for the third time, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may be once again eyeing the Oval Office.
While neither Warren nor Sanders have so much as hinted at another run publicly, a leaked memo from former Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir has raised more than a few eyebrows, according to The Hill.
In the memo, which made the media rounds on Wednesday, Shakir answered a hypothetical question about the possibility of another Sanders run with, “In the event of an open 2024 Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Sanders has not ruled out another run for president, so we advise that you answer any questions about 2024 with that in mind.”
The comment contradicts a statement Sanders made just a year ago: “It’s very, very unlikely that I’ll be running for president ever again.”
But with the memo coming to light, many progressive Democrats praised the possibility.
“I was heartened to see that Sen. Sanders and his progressive message still resonates so strongly with the vast majority of Americans,” said devoted Sanders supporter and political organizer Stacey Walker, who received the memo.
Meanwhile, Warren on Monday penned an op-ed for The New York Times in which she urged Biden to do more to fill his campaign promises.
“To put it bluntly: if we fail to use the months remaining before the elections to deliver on more of our agenda, Democrats are headed toward big losses in the midterms,” Warren wrote, leading some to wonder if her presidential aspirations are truly over, regardless of her support of Biden.
Especially, says Cooper Teboe — a donor adviser to progressive candidates — considering Warren’s recent moves to raise her profile.
“Not just that op-ed,” Teboe said. “If you look at her political operation, she’s endorsing in every race she can get her hands on. She’s sending emails out. She’s trying to build political currency in as many states as possible.”
Following Warren’s appearance on “Meet the Press,” data journalist Aron Goldman was also suspicious of Warren’s true intentions.
“Note,” he tweeted, “Warren does not answer the question, whether she’d run for president in 2024, if Biden doesn’t run again.”
Note: Warren does not answer the question, whether she’d run for president in 2024, if Biden doesn’t run again.
WELKER: Are you ruling out a run in 2024 should President Biden decide he’s not going to make another go?
WARREN: President Biden is running for re-election in 2024.
