Joe Biden will run in the Democratic Party primary to seek re-election in 2024. Although there is still no official confirmation, Jill Biden assured that her husband could announce his candidacy soon, without clarifying the exact place or time.
In an exclusive interview with Associated Press, the first lady, who is on an official trip to Nairobi (Kenya), affirmed that Biden says "he is not finished" with his work at the head of the federal government, so it is assumed that the President wants to continue for four more years. "He’s not finished what he’s started. And that’s what’s important. How many times does he have to say it for you to believe it?" said Jill Biden.

All indications are that this possible announcement could take place in April. In that same month in 2011, Barack Obama presented his candidacy for reelection with a video posted on his website entitled It begins with us.
Marianne Williamson, first Democratic nominee
On the same day that the Jill Biden interview was published, the first candidate for the 2024 Democratic primary was announced. Self-help author Marianne Williamson announced Thursday that she will compete for the Democratic nomination for the 2024 presidential election.
Williamson thus becomes the first Democratic challenger to announce her intention to run for the presidency of the country.
