On Tuesday, President Joe Biden formally declared his intention to compete for a second straight term in office in 2024. The oldest president in American history, Joe Biden, will be 86 in 2028. He is the third officially declared Democratic contender in the election, behind Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson.

Biden's team had insisted that he intended to run, but the president has repeatedly sidestepped the subject, saying he would consider his family and health before making a decision. 


Despite the fact that the president's doctor declared him "fit for duty" during a medical test in February, a Harvard CAPS-Harris survey conducted the same month revealed that 63% of Americans believed Biden was too old to run for president.

Prior to making his formal announcement, the president has been making more and more hints that he may run for office again. In April, he told reporters that he would decide "relatively soon" but that his team was "not prepared to announce it yet."

Jill Biden, the first lady, has said that she would wholeheartedly back Biden running again, stating that it is his choice and that the family would "support whatever he wants to do."

Given Joe Biden declared Kamala Harris to be his running mate in January 2022, she will most likely join him on the 2024 ticket.

According to CBS, Julie Chavez Rodriguez, a senior West Wing employee and the granddaughter of Cesar Chavez, will run Biden's campaign. Wilmington, Delaware, is apparently being considered as a prospective location for the campaign's headquarters. On the weekends, Biden regularly travels to the city, where he has a personal house.
