    RFK Jr. Looks Likely to Defeat Biden In First Two ’24 Primaries: Report

    Published on

    While it is almost certain that President Joe Biden will be the Democratic Party’s nominee in 2024, it appears increasingly likely that he will lose at least the first two primaries to Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

    Axios reported that this is the case “if they are in the traditional first-to-vote states of Iowa and New Hampshire — a scenario that seems increasingly likely.”

    Biden’s campaign has stated that he will not appear on the ballot in either of these two states if their primaries occur before South Carolina, which is reportedly his preference.

    “Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire could defy Biden and move ahead with their contests — even as the party warns it will strip them of their national convention delegates if they jump the gun,” Axios reported further. “That sets up a scenario in which Robert F. Kennedy Jr. or another long-shot Democrat could win those states — and embarrass the president.”

    New Hampshire Democrats have openly criticized both the White House and the Democratic National Committee in response to Vice President Biden’s announcement in December that South Carolina will be the first state for Democrats to hold a primary in 2024, which is scheduled for February 3.

    While the revised calendar designated New Hampshire and Nevada as the second states to vote a few days after South Carolina, New Hampshire Democrats have argued that their state law requires them to hold the first primary in the nation. According to Axios, several party members have expressed their intention to do so.

    “Iowa Democrats haven’t been as publicly hostile over Biden’s move. But in the past two months they’ve quietly moved to hold their contest the same day as Iowa Republicans — in January, but with a mail-in option for ballots,” the outlet reported.

    “That could put Iowa first on the Democrats’ calendar — but New Hampshire lawmakers and party officials have signaled they may then attempt to move ahead of Iowa,” it added.

    Prominent Democrats from Iowa and New Hampshire were dissatisfied with the Democratic National Committee’s lengthy procedure for determining the primary schedule. They criticized the protracted procedures, which included written proposals, presentations, and travel, as being nothing more than predetermined theater.

    “I believe the DNC’s process was flawed and that top party officials had their own agenda from the start,” said Sen. Jean Shaheen, a Democrat and New Hampshire’s senior senator.

    A senior Iowa Democrat told Axios, “We are rule-followers and want to participate in the process, but despite doing everything the DNC requested, we were not considered.”

    While a series of polls over the past several months have indicated that most Democratic voters do not want Biden to run again, the die seems cast. And in fact, according to several Democratic insiders, keeping Biden in place could be just a ploy to pave the way for a President Kamala Harris at some point. CONTINUE READING…
