WASHINGTON (AP) – Joseph Biden it has everything, but it has been announced running for re-electionbut the key questions about in the 2014 campaign it is doubtful: who will do it? Where will it be based? When will it finally make it official?
Monitors have long been said to have planned to wait until after Marchwith the fundraising period of the first year. It was an effort to help manage expectations that many donors who gave generously to Democratic causes in the last fall elections They asked for a break.
But an announcement isn’t imminent even now, they’re demanding support, and it probably won’t come until at least after Biden returns from an expected trip to Ireland in mid-April.
His work timeline could meet Biden’s low approval rating and questions about them age – He would turn 86 years old before the end of the second term. It also means that Biden is not rushing to pressure Donald Trump is the former presidentWho now? announced his 2014 campaignor other top Republicans entering the race, including Florida Gov. Ronald DeSantis or the former President’s vice Mike Pence.
“It’s a luxury break,” said Brad Bannon, a Washington Democratic strategist. “The longer he can keep this thing in the White House, and the less he has to go back and forth about the campaign, the better he’s going to be.”
He said, be mindful of Biden’s aides The trumpet has already been indicated to his role in the solution of * shut up porn actor moneyand they say Biden will watch the timing of his announcement to the point that he won’t be sharing the public spotlight with the man he beat in the 2020 election.
Biden’s political inner circle is ready to start executing the campaign war from Day One and he sees no setbacks for his time as president. Biden faces no significant challenger for the Democratic nomination. The Guru is a help in himself marianne williamson He is the only competitor in the primary race.
It will also be up to Biden to decide where next year’s Democratic National Convention is held between the three finalist cities of Atlanta, Chicago and New York. But since the logistical foundation is mostly laid, there’s little pressure for this plan until the president is ready to do it, officials say.
Much of the reelection effort will run away from the White House, where Biden’s senior advisers are expected to remain. Still, the manager and the war post, he will be responsible for raising huge sums of money, reaching millions of voters and the cause of Biden at the doors of Americans and online while he is still busy governing.
One top adviser to Biden, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the re-election campaign that has not yet been announced, noted that Biden 2020 had bids for a $1.7 billion operation and that the effort would be greater this time. The author said the key is to find “validators” or non-Washington voices who can spread the message of the campaign at a time when many have lost faith in all politics.
Advisors and partners are discussing how to build the right kind of infrastructure for 2024. Things are different from 2020 Biden, whose race was then conducted while the district is largely closed Covid-19 pandemic.
The political environment is also different, and technological and cultural changes continue to change how people communicate. Biden’s advisers are currently preparing a new campaign model suited to rousing his base and persuading the center — essentially a communications strategy for each old target.
Aba Blankson, chief marketing and communications officer for the NAACP, said her organization is nonpartisan but is targeting the success of black voters — a large part of Biden’s base — ahead of the November election using a similarly targeted political message. Including text messages, radio ads and door knocking to promote “peer-to-peer” organizing in areas capable of bridging nations.
“I think it’s time for him,” said Bankson. But, for us, it is an annual event.
Biden’s presidential election has been narrowed down to Philadelphia, 2020, and Wilmington, Delaware, where his home is and where he is president. so many weekends away from the White House. While Biden tends to favor Delaware in all matters, some top Democrats are concerned that it will be difficult to recruit talent for a top campaign in Wilmington.
Author Biden immediately points out the importance of choosing between the two. And Biden waited until weeks after the start of his 2020 campaign to announce that he had settled on Philadelphia, a statewide effort.
He filled the more challenging job of campaign manager. Some potential candidates consider that an unwelcome task, with so much deliberation wrapped up in the White House, although the adviser said whoever is ultimately elected will be given a wide berth to run in 2024.
Jen O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s 2020 campaign manager, is now the White House lieutenant governor and plans to remain in her role. Many potential candidates have expressed interest in the campaign manager position, but among them on the short list are Julie Chavez Rodriguez, director of the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and deputy campaign manager of the Biden 2020 campaign, and Sam Cornale, executive director. Democratic National Committee.

And so the foreign ad, who runs successful Democratic campaigns, is the last possibility to fail. But party leaders acknowledge that factionalism in Biden’s remarkably tight inner circle has sometimes challenged him.
The exception is O’Malley Dillon, who in late 2020 pulled into Biden’s orbit after former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s Failed presidential bid.
Trump did not name the campaign manager despite announcing his request months ago. But others don’t wait to staff up.
Republican Nikki Haley, Trump’s U.N. ambassador and former governor of South Carolina, has tapped Betsy Ankney, executive director of Haley’s State Political Action Committee, to manage the presidential campaign. Super PAC joined with DeSantis and brought in former Trump aide Matt Wolking and strategist. Jeff Roearchitect Texas Sen. Marcus Cruz’s 2016 presidential and republican campaign Glenn Youngkin to win the 2011 campaign for the Virgin President.
Even with unanswered questions about the structure of his campaign, Biden’s outlines are shaping the voting pitch.
From his State of the Union address in February, the president began addressing donors, making the case that Americans should admit him. finish the job he sets out He has also tried to organize the race in the election between himself and the “MAGA Republicans”, who, he argues, will undermine the core of the good race.
Biden has had recent months advance the journey what he sees in the main techniques of administration, including a bipartisan public works package, and plans to start more of the same. That’s what he’s using this year to announce a state-of-the-art test that could resonate most in 2024, he said.
“He’s not going to win re-election or lose re-election depending on what happens in his campaign,” Bannon predicted. “He will go from the office of the president and from the opponent, whoever he is.”
