The race for the 2024 election is fast approaching as candidates continue to emerge for the 60th presidential election in United States history, which will take place on November 5, 2024.
President Joe Biden announced he was running for re-election in 2024 in April, asking voters to let him “finish the job” he will face Democratic contenders such as author Marianne Williamson and lawyer Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
While the Democratic Party holds just a few nominations, a significant number of candidates are lining up to represent the Republican Party, including former President Donald Trump, who plans to return to the White House.
Here is a list of the official candidates for the presidency in 2024.
President Joe Biden officially launched his re-election campaign on April 25. In his first public appearance after the announcement, he outlined his plans for managing his role as president and presidential candidate.
Biden, who has more than 50 years of experience in Washington, is worried about his age as he turns 81 later this year.
“I said we were in a battle for the soul of America, and we still are,” Biden said. “The question we face is whether in the years to come we will have more freedom or less freedom. More rights or less.”
He also asked voters to give him another chance to fulfill the broken promises of his first campaign.
Self-help author Marianne Williamson was the first Democrat to formally challenge President Joe Biden for the 2024 nomination.
The 70-year-old announced her presidential campaign on March 4, focusing on calls for spiritual healing rather than actual voter support.
Williamson, whose slogans are “A fresh start” and “Disrupt the system,” said she would campaign in early-voting states on the 2024 election calendar.
Robert F.Kennedy, Jr.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced he was running for president on April 19 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.
