Vice President Kamala Harris refused to say Friday whether President Joe Biden would be running in 2024 during an interview.
Speaking with ClickonDetroit.com, Harris was asked whether voters should expect to see a Biden-Harris ticket in 2024.
“I am focused on the midterms, which are happening in the total of 26 days, and I am looking forward to that. The President has said he intends to run, and if he does, I will be running with him,” she said. (RELATED: Tim Ryan Doubles Down On Biden Not Running In 2024)
Biden himself has refused to unequivocally commit to running for re-election, saying during a recent “60 Minutes” interview that while he has intentions to run again, he can’t make the final call yet.
“Sir, are you committed to running again, or are there certain conditions that have to be right?” host Scott Pelley asked.
“Look, if I were to say to you, I’m running again, all of a sudden, a whole range of things come into play that I have – requirements I have to change and move and do,” Biden said. “And within the time frame that makes sense after this next election cycle here, going into next year, [I will ] make a judgment on what to do.”
“My intention as I aid to begin with is that I would run again,” the president continued. “But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
A new Economist/YouGov poll conducted between Oct. 8-11 amongst 1,500 respondents with a +/- 3.1 percent margin of error found that just 26% of respondents said “yes” when asked if they wanted Biden to run for president in 2024 while 52% opposed his reelection bid.
