Biden Favourite To Win Re-Election In 2024
Betting exchange Smarkets sees US President Joe Biden as favourite to win the 2024 presidential election for the first time in over a year.
- Comes as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is continuing to make moves consistent with a 2024 president campaign.
- Puck reports that two well-regarded GOP consultants, Phil Cox and Liesl Hickey, have been “staffing up for what appears to be a DeSantis-blessed super PAC.”
- Politico reports that GOP lawmakers in Florida are helping the DeSantis administration tie up some loose ends, “taking steps to undercut or nix legal challenges against some of DeSantis’ signature programs [and] helping him resolve a year-long feud with Disney.”
- President Biden will deliver his State of the Union speech this evening which is expected to function as a soft launch of his 2024 campaign.
