Bernie Bros Group Openly Campaigning to Stymie Biden in ’24


Anyone with any real political sense has known for some time that the Democratic Party is at war with itself, but the latest move by a pro-Bernie Sanders organization will make it quite obvious to even the most casual observer.

President Joe Biden is not exactly enjoying his time in office.  His approval rating is currently under the 30% mark, putting him in the rare air occupied by failures such as Richard Nixon.

Despite this, and fairly obliviously, Biden continues to suggest that he’ll be running for reelection in 2024.

One progressive group is now actively campaigning to keep that from happening.

A progressive grassroots organization that supported Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) 2016 and 2020 White House bids announced on Monday that it will launch a campaign to oppose President Biden’s reelection in 2024.

RootsAction wrote in a press release that Biden has been “neither bold nor inspiring” since taking office early last year. And because his “prospects for winning re-election appear to be bleak,” it will launch the #DontRunJoe campaign on Nov. 9, one day after the midterm elections.

“In 2024 the United States will face the dual imperatives of preventing a Republican takeover of the White House and advancing a truly progressive agenda. The stakes could not be higher,” RootsAction wrote in the release. “The threat of a neofascist GOP has become all too obvious. Bold and inspiring leadership from the Oval Office will be essential.”

The group did not pull any punches.

“With so much at stake, making [Biden] the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 2024 would be a tragic mistake,” the progressive group added.

A number of prominent Democrats, including the pugnacious House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have refused to publicly support the idea of a Biden reelection campaign – a move likely to embolden more of these doubters to go public in a meaningful way.
