    Gavin Newsome Announces Plans For Biden Ahead Of 2024 Presidential Election

    Published on

    While Republicans are speculating who of the rising excellent prospects would be Trump’s running mate if he decides to run, or his running mate if he decides not to run, Democrat speculation has focused on incumbent Vice President Joe Biden and a few of other candidates. If re-elected, Biden would be 82 years old at the beginning of his second term, making him by far the oldest executive to begin a four-year tenure in the Oval Office, prompting some to consider younger candidates.

    One of these candidates is the governor of California, Gavin Newsome. Newsom is regarded as one of Biden’s most likely primary opponents in 2024. The relatively young progressive Democrat has demonstrated a propensity to comment on national issues, frequently targeting Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis.

    Newsome had even challenged DeSantis to a debate prior to the midterm elections by tweeting, “I’ll bring my hair gel.” You should carry hairspray. Name the period before Election Day.”

    This tweet was a reaction to DeSantis’ request that the Justice Department examine Newsome’s immigration methods. “So the governor of California sent a letter to the Department of Justice saying, ‘You need to prosecute Texas and Florida governors,’” DeSantis said. “And all I say is, I think his hair gel is interfering with his brain function.”

    DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott have transferred illegal immigrants sent to their states against their will to self-proclaimed “sanctuary cities” and “sanctuary states” that had pledged to accept such illegals.

    Biden has hinted he will seek for re-election in 2024, but he has not yet made his candidacy public. Newsome has already disclosed his intentions.

    President Joe Biden can forget about facing a primary challenge from the Democratic governor, as California Gov. Newsom has told the White House he won’t launch a primary campaign against Biden in 2024, according to Politico. Newsom ruled out the prospect during an election night chat with Jonathan Martin of Politico.

    “I’ve told everyone in the White House, from the chief of staff to the first lady,” said Newsom of his interactions with the Biden administration. The progressive governor asserted to White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain that he would endorse Biden in 2024.

    “I’m all in, count me in,” Newsom said of Biden’s re-election, adding that he had told Biden the same thing. This month, Newsom reaffirmed his commitment to Biden in a phone conversation following his reelection.

    Newsom did voice his unhappiness that Biden insiders had recognized him as a potential threat to the president, identifying himself as a devoted Democrat in spite of their misgivings. “It’s frustrating because I have so much reverence and respect for not only the president, but the vice president is an old friend. For all of those interesting things you guys all love to write about, we’ve known each other for 25 years,” he said.

    As Newsom was regarded a leading candidate for the Democratic nomination for president in 2024, his absence diminishes the likelihood of a primary challenge to Biden from within the Democratic Party.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    Newsom, who has served as California’s governor since 2019, was less willing to rule out a possible presidential bid in 2028, according to Martin. As governor of California, Newsom has presided over a historically unprecedented wave of outbound migration and a homelessness crisis that has dramatically escalated during his tenure, and he is solidly in the liberal camp.

    Current President Joe Biden has emphatically stated that he will run, and with Newsome’s removing himself from the speculation about opposing candidates within the Democratic Party, there does not seem to be a front runner who would challenge the president going into his second term, Western Journal reports.
