US President Joe Biden, who plans to run for a second term, will meet with wealthy Democratic Party supporters in New York and Philadelphia.
US President Joe Biden, who is not yet on the campaign trail but is very openly flirting with a run for the 2024 election, will attend two fundraising events next week, a source in the Democratic camp said.
The octogenarian leader will be in New York next Tuesday, then in Philadelphia on Friday, meeting wealthy supporters to fill his party’s coffers.
“The intention to represent”
These fundraisers are crucial in American political campaigns, watered by hundreds of millions of dollars. And little by little, the architecture of a possible candidacy for the octogenarian leader is beginning to take shape.
By December, the president had already convinced the Democratic Party to completely disrupt the calendar for its primaries, strengthening the influence of the African-American vote, which had been very favorable to him in 2020.
Joe Biden has so far said he “intends to run” for president in 2024 and has promised to announce his decision at the beginning of the year.
Political experts predict a possible announcement after his State of the Union address, a traditional high-level political address by presidents given to parliamentarians and scheduled for February 7.
