FAST FIVE: Biden Tells Sharpton He's Running For President Again In 2024
Al Sharpton last month that he plans to seek a second term as president, telling the MSNBC host “I'm going to do it again,” as the two posed for a photograph in the Roosevelt Room, according to an official from Sharpton's National Action Network.
While Biden allies have said he will seek re-election, he has shied away from declaring it unequivocally, at least in part to avoid triggering campaign finance reporting laws.
In May, a Washington Post-Ipsos poll found that black voters nationwide are losing faith in Biden over unkept campaign promises, and are less enthusiastic about turning out for the Nov.
Days later, it was overwhelming support from Black voters that made Biden's presidency possible.
No word on whether Biden has obtained permission from his handlers to run again.
