US President Joe Biden has formally declared his candidacy for re-election in the upcoming presidential election. In a statement, Biden expressed his determination to continue leading the country and finish the work he has started.
“I am honored to announce that I will seek re-election as President of the United States. We have made great progress in the past four years, but our work is far from done. I am committed to continuing to serve the American people and ensuring that our country remains a shining example of democracy and freedom,” Biden said.
The announcement comes as no surprise, as Biden has previously stated his intention to run for re-election. However, his formal announcement marks the beginning of what is sure to be a contentious and closely-watched campaign.
Biden’s first term as president has been marked by a series of challenges, including the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, a struggling economy, and social unrest. Despite these challenges, he has remained steadfast in his commitment to addressing these issues and moving the country forward.
With his announcement, Biden becomes the first Democrat to formally declare their candidacy for the 2024 presidential election. As the campaign season heats up, he will undoubtedly face strong opposition from the Republican party, who are expected to put forward their own candidate in the coming months.
Regardless of the outcome, the 2024 presidential election is sure to be one of the most closely-watched and consequential elections in recent history. And with his announcement, Joe Biden has officially thrown his hat into the ring, signaling his determination to continue leading the country and finish the job he started.
