Biden says he intends to run in 2024, has not made a ‘firm decision’

President Biden in a new interview said he intends to run for re-election but has not yet made a “firm decision.” “Look, my intention as I said to begin with is

that I would run again,” Biden said in an interview with “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday. “But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to

be seen.” Biden and his advisers have repeatedly said he intends to run in 2024, when he would be 81 years old. They have refrained from definitively saying Biden will

seek re-election, something Biden said is due in part to campaign finance laws that would require him to disclose donors and cap his fundraising. “I’m a great respecter

of fate. And so, what I’m doing is I’m doing my job. I’m gonna do that job. And within the timeframe that makes sense after this next election cycle here, going into next year,

make a judgment on what to do,” Biden said. Speculation has swirled about whether Biden would seek a second term dating back to when he first won election. He indicated

during the 2020 campaign that he was seeking to be a bridge to the next generation of Democratic Party leaders, and a dip in his approval ratings this year in the face of rampant

inflation has only fueled talk about whether he should step aside in 2024. Even as his approval ratings have rebounded after a productive August, the questions have

persisted about his future plans.
