(TheDailyHorn.com) – Candidates interested in running for president will begin announcing their intentions during the summer months of 2023. President Joe Biden says he intends to run for re-election. Yet, if elected in 2024, he’ll be the oldest president to ever serve at 84 years of age.
Needless to say, questions are swirling about a Biden/Harris re-election. Biden’s approval ratings are hovering in the upper 30’s, and those numbers will complicate his re-election chances if they don’t improve.
Khanna running could ensure the progressive left doesn't have to deal with their nightmare Harris vs. Buttigieg primary. https://t.co/ia7AOKWVmD

If Biden doesn’t run, many expect Vice President Kamala Harris to take his place in 2024. Like Biden, though, her approval ratings are abysmal. She’s perceived as a failure on immigration and voter rights, and has effectively been relegated to conducting public relations for the president. In 2020, Harris performed so badly in the Democratic primary that she was the first candidate to drop out before a primary voting and caucusing began. Besides, the far-left is not enamored with Harris. Instead, they appear to be promoting Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA).
The Left’s backing of Khanna is surprising. He’s no Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), but that may be the point. New York’s Democratic representative has become highly combative within the party, and now the Left claims she’s cozying up to the establishment. While Khanna is a far-left progressive, he’s not seen as combative, and he shies away from cultural battles. Some say he’s also able to maintain his progressivism while building relationships with Republicans.
