Newsom is trying to quiet rumors of a possible 2024 run.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) says he will support his party’s leader, President Joe Biden, should Joe decide to seek reelection in 2024.
From The Daily Wire:
“I’ve told everyone in the White House, from the chief of staff to the first lady,” Newsom told Politico on election night, referring to his claim that he won’t challenge Biden.
The governor reportedly told White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain and First Lady Jill Biden over the summer that he’s a strong supporter of Biden’s reelection, according to the outlet. “I’m all in, count me in,” he allegedly told the duo.
“I’m all in; put me in coach,” Newsom reportedly told Biden during an Election Day phone call. “We have your back.”
The Politico report said Democrats’ first priority is stopping President Donald Trump from making another run at the White House.
“He not only beat Trump once, I think he can beat him again,” Newsom said of Biden. “I hope he runs, I’ll enthusiastically support him.”
“It’s frustrating because I have so much reverence and respect for not only the president but the vice president is an old friend, for all of those interesting things you guys all love to write about, we’ve known each other for 25 years,” Newsom said of the speculation that he might run in the next presidential election.
