President Joe Biden announced Tuesday he will run for reelection in 2024.
In a three-minute video, which also featured Vice President Kamala Harris, Biden urged voters to give him a chance to “finish this job.” “I said we are in a battle for the soul of America, and we still are,” he said.
At 1:30 p.m. EDT, join PBS NewsHour digital anchor Nicole Ellis and White House correspondent Laura Barrón-López as they walk through reaction to the announcement, the 2024 field so far, and what it could mean for the race for the White House.
In the days leading up to Biden’s announcement, 4 in 10 Americans said they approved of the job he was doing in office so far, according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released Tuesday. But about half of Americans said they disapproved of his performance. Meanwhile, 64 percent of Americans said they didn’t want former President Donald Trump, who launched his own reelection campaign last year, to run for office again. But 71 percent of Republicans said they wanted him in the White House.
