President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris formally announced plans to run for reelection on Tuesday, sharing a video on Twitter along with a press release naming members of the campaign leadership team.
As the video displayed images from the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, Biden warned that “MAGA extremists” are “dictating what health care decisions women can make, banning books, and telling people who they can love.” “That’s why I’m running for reelection,” the president said. “Because I know America.
I know we are good and decent people. And I know we are still a country that believes in honesty and respect, and treating each other with dignity.
That we’re a nation where we give hate no safe harbor. And we believe that everyone is equal, and that everyone should be given a fair shot to succeed in this country.” Senior Biden advisor Julie Chávez Rodríguez was tapped to run the campaign.
