Bernie Sanders Declares Biden as ‘Clear’ Choice for 2024

Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed President Joe Biden’s 2024 re-election campaign, despite their history of political differences and previous competition in the primaries.

Sanders expressed his support for Biden on CNN’s “State of the Union,” arguing if people believe in democracy and want to see more folks vote, the choice is clear and that choice is Biden.

Sanders Emphasizes Importance of Supporting Biden to Promote Unity

Sanders endorsed Biden soon after the president officially announced his 2024 candidacy, despite concerns about Biden’s age (80) and fitness for office from within the Democrat Party.

Sanders, who is 81, believes voters should consider various factors when evaluating a candidate, such as age, experience, and record. Ultimately, Sanders emphasizes the importance of understanding a candidate’s stance on issues and which side they are on.

Sanders, an Independent who usually sides with Democrats, expressed concern about some Republicans’ apparent disregard for democracy.

He emphasized the importance of the upcoming election in determining the future of American democracy during an interview with MSNBC host Chris Hayes.

Sanders’ Advice for Democrats to Win 2024 Election in a Landslide

The senator highlighted the stark contrast between a potential right-wing demagogue or pathological liar leading the country and re-electing a decent human being like Biden, who is trying to unite the American people.

Sanders believes the stakes are high and supporting Biden is crucial to preserving democracy and promoting unity in the United States.

Sanders points out that many leaders within the Republican Party perpetuate the myth that Trump won the last election, attempt to suppress voting, and deny women the right to control their bodies.

Trump announced his own bid for re-election; early polls suggest a potential rematch between him and Biden. However, these early polls should be taken with caution as the election season is still long.

Sanders believes if the Democrats and President Biden focus more on working-class issues, Biden could win the 2024 election in a landslide.
