Many commentators have questioned Joe Biden’s viability for 2024. Not only is he suffering from low approval ratings, but some Americans worry about his age and health. The liberal establishment has so far black-walled any challenges to Joe’s nomination. But several candidates are running against him.
For months, some pundits have wondered about California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s future. Some have seemed to think that he is next in line among Democrats shooting for the White House. Conservatives have been very critical of how the man’s run the state. But now, after endless speculation, Newsom is setting the record straight.
Gavin Newsom says he will not be running for President in 2024 The only people I’ve heard say they think he was going to run are Republicans

According to a new interview with Meet the Press, Gavin Newsom will not be seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2024. Newsom appears to be shying away from a definitive answer, though.
He said, “It’s the Biden-Harris administration. Maybe I’m a little old fashioned about presidents and vice presidents.” That appears to be a clear indicator that he is not running. But it is also possible Newsom is being careful about what he says.
There could come a time when Joe Biden is unable to run for president. The nomination will not automatically go to Kamala Harris, who is polling worse than Joe. On that day, you might see many Democrats jump at the chance of running in Biden’s place. Could Newsom be one of them?
A growing number of Democrat lawmakers are calling for Biden challengers. With numbers like the ones we’re seeing, liberal strategists must be worried about Joe’s chances. At the moment, his biggest rival is Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is rising in the polls.
Newsom might be cagey at the moment… but that could change at the drop of a hat.
- California Gov. Gavin Newsom indicated that he was not running for president.
- Newsom denied it but did not expressly state he was not running.
- This comes as some Democrats worry Biden has little chance at re-election.
