A progressive organization that once supported President Joe Biden has now announced its #DontRunJoe campaign urging the president not to run again in 2024.
RootsAction launched the new campaign this week in an effort to oppose Biden’s run for reelection.

“Unfortunately, President Biden has been neither bold nor inspiring,” RootsAction said in a statement. “And his prospects for winning re-election appear to be bleak.”
“With so much at stake, making him the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 2024 would be a tragic mistake,” the statement added.

The move should not be surprising based on the president’s low approval rating. Following the midterm elections, Biden is likely to face even more calls to step down as Republicans are expected to retake power in the House.
The new campaign may be quick to push back against Biden for his weaknesses in office, but the left has not been able to provide any better alternative to stand in Biden’s place for a 2024 run. The coming months should be a key time regarding whether Biden will choose to push ahead with another campaign or step down as RootsAction has suggested.
