US President Joe Biden has not yet made a final decision on whether to run for a second term in 2024, Politico reports citing sources.
On vacation on the island of St. Croix, Biden “continued his running conversation with family and a select few friends and allies about a reelection bid,” Politico said on Sunday, citing three people with knowledge of the deliberations.
According to Politico, First Lady Jill Biden is in favor of her 80-year-old husband running for a second term.
Despite concerns about Biden’s ability to handle another presidential campaign, those in the president’s circle believe he is likely to run again in 2024 and that a relevant announcement could be made earlier than expected, possibly in mid-February, Politico said, citing sources.
In November, US media reported that Biden had been meeting privately with a very small group of senior advisers at the White House residence to prepare for a potential 2024 reelection campaign.
