Could this be who replaces Biden in 2024?
It has now been revealed that top former officials in the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders is now asking Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna to run for president in 2024 if Biden decides to not run for re-election.
According to Newsmax, Both Sanders’ former campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, and his former senior adviser Mark Longabaugh have been urging Rep. Khanna to run for the White House if Biden steps down.
Longabaugh explained, “I think Ro would be a very effective candidate. This guy has a message that’s very powerful … Ro is basically saying, Is there a way in which we can reconstruct the economy so that all of the wealth is not just being generated on the East Coast, West Coast, or out of my congressional district [San Francisco Bay Area]?”
He then added, “I think he would have tremendous appeal among people who supported Bernie. I do, absolutely, 100%. He has a thoughtful take on the economy, which I think a lot of working-class people that Democrats have had difficulty reaching would hear.”
When Ro Khanna was asked directly if he will run, he responded, “I’m not running in 2024. I fully expect the president to run and intend to support him strongly. If for some reason he didn’t, that would be very disappointing, but there are a number of other candidates who I think I could get behind who would make sure that the Democrats beat [former President] Donald Trump.”
