7 Democrats Most Likely to Run for President in 2024

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1908: Henry Ford’s first Ford Model T automobile leaves the Piquette Plant in Detroit, Michigan.

President Joe Biden recently said that it “remains to be seen” if he will seek reelection in 2024, prompting more speculation about who might run instead.

Here are the seven individuals most likely to seek the Democratic nomination if Biden doesn’t run again, according to The Hill.

Vice President Kamala Harris

Despite underwhelming approval numbers during her tenure as VP, Harris remains the top possibility to run in Biden’s stead in 2024.

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg

Buttigieg’s current role as Transportation secretary “has sent him around the country to boast about popular infrastructure projects —something that can only help him down the road,” the outlet noted.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI)

The Hill noted that the Michigan governor “came closer than many realize to being Biden’s pick for vice president.”

The 51-year-old is currently leading her Republican gubernatorial opponent by 16 points.

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA)

The California governor has been making himself known nationwide. Earlier this month, he ran aggressive billboards in states that have outlawed abortion, advertising that the procedure is still available in California.

One Democratic strategist said that Newsom still has “a lot to prove, but he has certainly made Democrats pay attention.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

Warren has expressed that her main focus in 2024 is her Senate reelection campaign, but Democrats still say there would be a spot for her if Biden doesn’t run again.

But the Senator has avoided participating in 2024 presidential speculation.

“We’ve got to stop the catnip about 2024,” Warren told Axios this summer. “If we start getting tangled up on 2024, and fail to pay attention to business in 2022, that is not only going to hurt us in 2022. It is going to bite us on the rear end in 2024.”  

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

Sanders is currently 81 years old, but strategists point out that his stances on certain issues resonate with their base.

The Hill noted that Sanders “has become such a staple of the Democratic Party since his first White House bid in 2016 that it’s hard to rule out a run.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.)

AOC would be barely eligible for a presidential run in 2024 since she turns 35 just a month before the election. But she’s one of the most well-known figures within the Democratic party.

However, there are questions over whether her policies are too liberal to win her party’s nomination or the general election.

“Disconnected From Reality or She’s Blatantly Lying”: Tulsi Gabbard Blasts Kamala Harris

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1957: U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower orders troops to support the integration of nine black students at Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) rebuked Vice President Kamala Harris for claiming that the U.S.-Mexico border is secure.

“Kamala Harris’ statement that ‘we have a secure border’ is further evidence that she’s either completely disconnected from reality or she’s blatantly lying,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter.

“Either way, she has no business being a heartbeat away from the presidency,” added Gabbard, who was a Democratic presidential nominee in 2020.

VP Harris raised eyebrows when she declared that “the border is secure” during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

“The border is secure,” Harris told Chuck Todd.

“We’re going to have 2 million people cross this border for the first time ever,” Todd responded. “You’re confident this border’s secure?”

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration,” Harris said. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

Texas Governor Buses Migrants to Kamala Harris’s House

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) sent two busloads of migrants to a bus stop outside Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence.

Abbott approved the move after Harris asserted that the U.S.-Mexico border is “secure” in a recent interview. The Texas governor apparently took exception to the VP’s claim and brought the problem she’s ignoring to her front door.

“The Biden-Harris Administration continues ignoring and denying the historic crisis at our southern border, which has endangered and overwhelmed Texas communities for almost two years,” Abbott said in a statement.

“Our supposed Border Czar, Vice President Kamala Harris, has yet to even visit the border to see firsthand the impact of the open border policies she has helped implement, even going so far as to claim the border is ‘secure,’” he added. “Texas will continue sending migrants to sanctuary cities like Washington, D.C. until President Biden and Border Czar Harris step up and do their jobs to secure the border.”

Harris insisted to NBC’s “Meet the Press” this week that “the border is secure.” Host Chuck Todd pressed Harris, pointing out that 2 million people will cross the U.S. border for the first time this year.

The VP reiterated that the border is “secure” and emphasized that many of the problems stem from the Trump administration.

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours, and our administration,” Harris said. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

‘Needs To Be Fired Immediately’: Liberal Critics Blast Kamala Harris

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1389: Ottomans defeat the Serbian army in the bloody Battle of Kosovo, opening the way for the Ottoman conquest of Southeastern Europe.

Liberal critics blasted Vice President Kamala Harris over a “tone-deaf” photo she posted online in response to the Roe v. Wade protests that broke out nationwide.

In the photo, the VP is watching news coverage of the protests aboard Air Force 2.

“I know there are women out there who are afraid. To those of you who feel alone and scared: I want you to know the President and I are fighting for you and your rights. We are in this fight together,” Harris wrote alongside the photo on Twitter.

Pro-choice critics quickly responded to Harris, expressing dismay with the VP’s “tone-deaf” photo.

“Um. 36,000 feet above everything, watching on a big ass TV in a private plane, and the message is ‘we’re in this together’? I’m not sure you guys get where the rest of us are at right now,” said Joan McCarter, a writer for the left-wing outlet Daily Kos.

Activist Imani Barbarin tweeted: “Who was the strategist that decided a photo op on a taxpayer funded private plane both physically and metaphorically above the people watching pensively while not demonstrating action was a good idea?”

Jack Mirkinson, the editor of the left-leaning Discourse Blog, wrote: “You could try and try, but you would not invent a more cutting visual metaphor for the democrats’ total detachment from the abortion fight than this.”

“Not VP Kamala Harris watching the erosion of Roe vs. Wade from her plane, at a distance,” writer Anna Gifty tweeted. Whoever thought this was [a] good photo-op needs to be fired immediately.”

Pence To Harris: “How Dare You?”

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1980: World Health Organization announces smallpox has been eradicated.

Former Vice President Mike Pence rebuked Vice President Kamala Harris over her stance on abortion as the Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Those Republicans leaders who are trying to weaponize the use of the law against women — how dare they?” Harris said at an EMILY’s List conference. “How dare they tell a woman what she can do and cannot do with her own body? How dare they? How dare they try to stop her from determining her own future? How dare they try to deny women their rights and their freedoms?”

Pence responded to Harris’s remarks while speaking at an event for the Carolina Pregnancy Center, saying “62 million unborn boys and girls ended in abortion” since Roe v. Wade.

“Since 1973, generations of mothers enduring heartbreaking and loss that can last a lifetime. Madame Vice President, how dare you?” Pence asked.

“My hope, and frankly my prayer, is that those five justices on the Supreme Court have the courage of their convictions and will give us a fresh start on life in America,” Pence said.

WATCH: Kamala Had a Rough Go of It This Week

Vice President Kamala Harris’ appearances on morning talk shows didn’t go swimmingly this week, as hosts fired pointed questions on Ukraine, inflation, and the midterm elections.

Today Show host Savannah Guthrie asked Harris if President Joe Biden will implement sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s oil and gas sectors, but the VP didn’t provide a direct answer.

“We have, as the president said, reevaluated what we’re doing in terms of the strategic oil reserve in the United States to make sure it will not have an impact or we can mitigate the impact on the American consumer,” Harris said.

“But, let’s take this one step at a time, understanding that right now, on the issue of energy, our allies have stood firm and unified in a way that many of the pundits didn’t predict would happen to ensure that we are unified in our approach to this issue.”

When Harris appeared on CBS Mornings, Gayle King noted that 70% of the nation disapproves of the Biden administration’s handling of inflation.

“Listen, people are struggling, especially working people. In terms of the price of gas and food and, uh, the reasons include what we need to do to address what happened through the pandemic in terms of supply chain issues, which was a reduction of the availability of goods, so the prices went up,” Harris said.

“We also need to deal with one of the biggest issues, which is the cost of living. It’s too expensive for working families.”

Harris told This Week host George Stephanopoulos that Democrats are paying attention to the “needs of American families.”

“The president also, I thought, did a spectacular job of trying to appeal to American leaders, regardless of party affiliation, to come together in a unified way around these issues that impact people regardless of who they voted for in the last election. That’s how we continue to make our country strong.”

The VP’s Off-Script Remarks Were Not Popular with Conservatives

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
2002: U.S. invasion of Afghanistan: US conventional forces first deployed as part of Operation Anaconda.

Vice President Kamala Harris went “off script” while speaking at the White House, and her candid remarks weren’t exactly well-received by conservatives.

Harris said she “felt such pride and such hope” when President Joe Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the Supreme Court.

“As we all know, elections matter,” Harris said. “And when folks vote, they order what they want — and in this case, they got what they asked for.”

“I went off script a little bit,” she added with a laugh.

A video of Harris’s comments quickly circulated, with critics listing various grievances with the Biden administration.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote: “The American people didn’t ask for any of this: record Inflation, record border crisis, closed schools, a war on American energy, Afghanistan disaster, Russia invasion of Ukraine.”

Former White House press secretary and current Arkansas gubernatorial candidate Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the Biden administration a “complete and total failure.”

“Yes, elections do matter! And in November, we’ll see that no one asked for the Democrats’ soaring inflation, closed schools & masked kids, record crime, or war on American energy,” Sanders wrote. “It’ll be a referendum on Biden’s complete and total failure.”

The VP’s polarizing comments came as the Biden administration’s job approval rating reached its lowest point since taking office — 37%.

“Biden has a 37% approval rating in the recent ABC poll. People didn’t ask for this. She is a terrible politician,” wrote Tim Murtaugh, a former Trump 2020 campaign communications director.

Kamala Harris ‘Perpetually Unprepared’

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1967: 25,000 US and South Vietnamese troops launch Operation Junction City against the Viet Cong. Largest US airborne assault since WWII

Critics blasted Vice President Kamala Harris over her trip to Germany, saying that her press conference proved that she was “perpetually unprepared” to address the ongoing situation on the Ukraine-Russia border.

Over the weekend, Harris traveled to Munich to meet with several European allies hoping to secure a united front should Russia invade Ukraine. She met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and promised “severe” economic sanctions if Russia invades.

However, both she and President Joe Biden have said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has already decided to invade.

A clip from a press briefing has made the rounds on social media, with critics calling her remarks “word salad.”

“I mean, listen guys, we are talking about the potential for war in Europe,” Harris said.

“I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about. It’s been over 70 years; and through those 70 years — as I mentioned yesterday — there has been peace and security,” she continued.

“We are talking about the real possibility of war in Europe. So our position is, for us, very clear, which is as a leader —which we have been — bringing together the allies, working together around our collective and unified position, that we would all — not just prefer — we desire, we believe it is in the best interest of all that there is a diplomatic end to this moment.”

“Sending perpetually unprepared Kamala Harris over to attempt to quell a geopolitical crisis is such an outrageous move,” GOP adviser Matt Whitlock tweeted.

Senate candidate Sean Parnell said: “This word salad…may God help us all. We are being led by total buffoons.”

Some were quick to point out the factual inaccuracies in Harris’ remarks.

“This ignores Yugoslav Wars, as well as Russia’s attacks on Georgia [and] Ukraine,” Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy tweeted.

“Also, Berlin Wall only came down three decades ago so I’d quibble with 70 years…”

Report: Harris Drove Within Yards of Pipe Bomb Outside DNC Headquarters

Vice President Kamala Harris drove within several yards of a pipe bomb outside the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters on Jan. 6, 2021, a previously unreported revelation highlighting a significant security lapse during the incident.

Harris arrived at the DNC headquarters at approximately 11:30 a.m. EST. Her motorcade traveled through the garage into a parking deck close to where authorities found a pipe bomb. She reportedly remained in the building for almost two hours before being evacuated.

At about 1:14 p.m., Harris was removed from the DNC building — seven minutes after Capitol Police started looking into the bomb. An internal U.S. Capitol Police timeline said an unnamed “protectee,” later identified as Harris, was evacuated from the headquarters at that time.

A law enforcement source familiar with the incident said that Secret Service searched the premises before Harris had arrived at the building on Jan. 6, 2021. She was reportedly removed from the building through a different route away from the bomb.

A pipe bomb was also discovered near the Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters on Jan. 6, 2021. The FBI’s Washington Field Office said the devices found near the two buildings “were viable and could have been detonated, resulting in serious injury or death.”

Authorities are still looking for the person responsible for the pipe bombs.

Harris to Attend Inauguration of Socialist Honduran President

Vice President Kamala Harris is attending the inauguration of the democratic socialist Honduran President-elect Xiomara Castro.

Harris has kept in contact with Castro since her election victory. Last month, she took a call to “deepen the partnership between the United States and Honduras,” said Sabrina Singh, deputy press secretary for the vice president.

Castro is not only the first leader in Honduras’ history to win an election on a socialist platform, but she’s also the first woman to be president of the Central American country.

Castro’s husband, former Honduran President Mel Zelaya, who was deposed from his role by a military coup in 2009, was her campaign manager. Zelaya is a controversial figure in Honduran politics, having been ousted after trying to mirror the policies of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

The delegation for Castro’s inauguration, led by Harris, includes U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power, Rep. Raul Ruiz (D-CA), the State Department’s Jose Fernandez and Brian Nichols, and Colleen Hoey, the charge d’affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa.
