Third time’s a charm?
Speculation continues to mount about President Biden’s potential re-election bid in 2024. While Biden has reportedly confirmed he will run for a second term, eyes have shifted to other possible candidates to take up the mantle for the Democrats if the president changes his mind. This would potentially open the door for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to launch a White House bid for the third time. The democratic socialist remains highly popular among the younger generations, but he is also among the eldest candidates — older even than Biden, at 81 years old.
What are the chances that, if Biden opts out of the next campaign, an announcement could come for a Sanders 2024 run? Here’s everything you need to know.
