Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman dodges question about Biden’s 2024 run

Progressive New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D) on Sunday became the latest Democrat to dodge the question of whether President Joe Biden should run for the White House in 2024.

“I want us to continue winning as Democrats right now in the House. I mean, we’re talking about a year or two. I don’t think a year or two,” Bowman joked when CNN State of the Union guest host Brianna Keilar spoke about a potential bid from Biden for the White House.

Keilar responded to Bowman, saying he could “walk and chew gum at the same time and tell us if you think he should run again or not.”

“Here is the most important thing we need to focus on right now. We have to keep the House, which I think we have a chance to do,” the New York Democrat replied. “We need to win several seats in the Senate, which I know we have a chance to do, and once we do that, we will show our strength as a party, which will make it stronger and help us then. as we enter 2024.”

Bowman’s dodge comes after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did not directly comment on whether he thinks the president should run again.

“I don’t focus on that,” Schumer replied when asked about it by SiriusXM show host Joe Madison.

“If we get a few more seats in the Senate — right now, if the election was today, we would get a few more seats,” the New York Democrat said of the upcoming midterm elections at the time. “We are doing very good.”

Schumer previously pledged to back Biden if he seeks another term for the nation’s highest office.
