The Democrat ticket in 2024 continues to be a muddled picture.
It looks like there will be massive changes.
And now this big-name Democrat is going to replace Kamala Harris in 2024.
Despite the fact that Joe Biden continues to claim he is running for re-election Biden continues to drop hints that he will pass on seeking a second term.
The latest example of Biden hedging his bets came in an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
“Look, my intention, as I said, that began with is that I would run again. But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen,” Biden told a fawning Scott Pelley.
Polls show Democrats do not want Biden to run again in 2024.
A CNN poll found 75 percent of Democrats want a different candidate.
Democrats’ doubts about Biden largely center on the fact that Biden will turn 82 in 2024 and 86 at the end of a potential second term.
Deep down even Democrats know that Joe Biden is senile and Biden serving as president until he is 86 represents a massive threat to American national security.
Biden stepping aside would mean Kamala Harris would walk to the nomination in 2024.
But Harris’ poll numbers are even worse than Biden’s.
Harris’ speeches are an embarrassment as she jumbles together words that make no sense like she is reading off of Mad Libs.
And Harris’ time in office is defined as her failure as Biden’s border czar to slam the brakes on the illegal alien invasion.
Democrats are making no secret about their intentions to challenge Harris for the nomination in 2024.
One of them is California Governor Gavin Newsom who let it be known it is a 100 percent certainty he will run for president if Joe Biden decides not to try for re-election.
The Wrap reports:
California Governor Gavin Newsom is “undeniably, unequivocally” planning to run for president in 2024 if President Biden chooses not to seek a second term, two individuals with knowledge of Newsom’s plans told TheWrap.
“After this midterm election is over, he absolutely is going to announce that he is running for the presidency once Biden announces that he is not running,” a leading California fundraiser with close ties to the Newsom family told TheWrap. “No ifs, ands or buts. He will run if Biden does not.”
Newsom is not exactly hiding these intentions.
Recently, Newsom challenged Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to a debate on CNN about DeSantis calling attention to Biden’s failure to secure the border by flying 50 illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard.
Hey @GovRonDeSantis, clearly you’re struggling, distracted, and busy playing politics with people’s lives. Since you have only one overriding need — attention –let’s take this up & debate. I’ll bring my hair gel. You bring your hairspray. Name the time before Election Day. @CNN https://t.co/vTJHQxfArW

This was just the latest provocation Newsom tossed DeSantis’ way.
Newsom knows Democrat voters consider DeSantis a Donald Trump-type threat.
So Newsom also understands the best way to build his profile with the party base is to feud with DeSantis.
Newsom is the governor of the nation’s largest state.
That allows him access to donors, party leadership and media contacts that can build the infrastructure for a top-level presidential campaign.
Newsom also knows that Democrats are really looking for any excuse to ditch Harris.
And Newsom looks ready to give liberals that excuse.
