(FixThisNation.com) – Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) has once again expressed his support for President Biden placing a reelection bid in 2024.
During an interview with the Financial Times, Clyburn said that he could not see why Biden would choose to not run in the presidential election. He added that Biden was “as decent a person as you can have” and that he should be given the chance to serve a second term in the White House.
Clyburn said that he was hopeful Biden would choose to run, especially since he did not think there was someone who would be able to “do a better job of trying to get us back on track.”
These remarks came after Tuesday’s State of the Union address. Following the address Clyburn, the former House Democratic whip told CNN that he thought the state of the Union address was the start of Biden’s reelection campaign.
During the speech which addressed a joint session of Congress, Biden pointed out many of his office’s successes. Still, he has not yet officially launched a presidential campaign, but with the State of the Union behind him, he is far more likely to place his bid now.
Clyburn’s endorsement before the South Carolina primary in 2020 is widely considered to have been essential for the President during his last campaign. This endorsement allowed him to turn around the Democratic primary after he lost both Iowa and New Hampshire before South Carolina’s vote.
