Joe Biden announced on Monday that he's running for reelection in 2024 to "stand up for democracy" and "freedoms."

From The Guardian, "Joe Biden formally announces 2024 White House run":
In a three-minute video opening with pulsing images of the US Capitol attack, Biden warned that the US remains under threat from the anti-democratic forces unleashed by his predecessor, who he beat in 2020.

Biden said: "When I ran for president four years ago, I said we were in a battle for the soul of America -- and we still are."

[...] Already the oldest president, Biden would be 86 before the end of a second term, nearly a decade older than Ronald Reagan was when he left the White House in 1989. Trump is 76.

In his video, Biden warned that "Maga extremists" -- Trump's slogan is "Make America Great Again" -- were working to strip away "bedrock freedoms".

"Cutting social security that you've paid for your entire life while cutting taxes for the very wealthy," Biden said. "Dictating what healthcare decisions women can make, banning books and telling people who they can love. All while making it more difficult for you to be able to vote."

[...] Julie Chavez Rodriguez, a senior White House adviser and granddaughter of the celebrated labor leader Cesar Chavez, will be campaign manager. Her principal deputy will be Quentin Fulks, a strategist who ran Raphael Warnock's Senate re-election campaign in Georgia, a battleground state Biden won in 2020. The announcement begins a fundraising sprint. Major donors have been summoned to Washington.
Remember what you're fighting for!
