You’ve got experts on both sides of the political aisle trying to figure out all the possible scenarios for the 2024 presidential election which is just 20 months away.
Two of the most important questions right now are who will challenge Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination, and who might challenge Donald Trump from the Republican side.
Democratic lawmakers are still being very careful about presuming to throw President Biden under the bus, but it is becoming more and more apparent that a significant number of Democratic leaders are simply terrified about another Biden candidacy.
It is expected that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will throw his hat into the ring in early summer.
According to the Washington Examiner, there is one prominent Democratic-backed think tank that is sounding the alarm about possible efforts to create a third-party presidential ticket in 2024. But they warn that a move like that would likely hand the election to Trump.
The group giving this warning is “Third Way,” and they indicate that “No Labels” has been working behind the scenes for months to put together a bipartisan “unity ticket” in 2024.
They are calling the effort an “insurance policy,” and say they fear that “both major political parties could nominate divisive presidential candidates that a majority of the country finds unacceptable.”
They have said that President Biden is an “unacceptable” candidate who can’t win the next election. Their operation is said to be a $70 million effort, of which $46 million has already been raised or pledged.
No Labels said it’s not interested in building an ongoing third party, but just a one-time effort to deny both Biden and Trump the presidency.
If neither Biden nor Trump wins their respective nominations, No Label said that they will “stand down.”
Needless to say, this election will be one of the most contested in recent history.
