President Biden’s own party is saying that he will have challengers if he chooses to run again in 2024.
“Prominent Democrat operatives have warned that if President Joe Biden makes good on his promise and runs for reelection in 2024, he will have to have primary challengers,” reports Breitbart News.
“If he runs, he will be challenged,” Michael Starr Hopkins said.
“Hopkins ‘enthusiastically’ supported Biden’s presidential campaign in 2020 but has soured on the president as an unchallenged nominee,” reports Breitbart News.
“Corbin Trent, a former senior aide to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), echoed Hopkins’s analysis,” reports Breitbart News. “If it looks like it’s going to be a free-for-all, then I think it’s going to be back to the 24-person primary,” he said.
“Democrats have been split by Biden’s leadership. On the one hand, far-left radicals have swayed the administration towards policies that are stifling the nation, such as energy dependence, inflation, immigration, and crime,” according to Breitbart News.
“On the other hand, less radical Democrats are trying to survive the midterms in less blue districts, whose constituents are skeptical of the far-left agenda,” reports Breitbart. “For instance, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who is from a state that nearly voted for Donald Trump over Biden by 40-points, has opposed many of Biden’s radical policies. Manchin is responsible for sinking Biden’s costly ‘Build Back Better’ agenda. He has also supported the fossil fuel industry during its war with the Biden administration.”
“But far-left Democrats have slammed Manchin for ‘blocking progress.’ When Manchin opposed ‘Build Back Better,’ Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) blamed him for failing the radical agenda,” according to Breitbart News.
“It should not surprise anyone that Senator Joe Manchin went on Fox News to kill the Build Back Better Act – he’s been promising to do it for months, and some folks did not want to believe him,” Tlaib said. “President Joe Biden’s policy agenda has been scuttled by Joe Manchin. Progress for the American people has been halted by Joe Manchin.”
With so much division in the Democratic Party, it looks like Biden will have to face challengers in the primaries.
