Politics Biden says he will wait for midterm elections to decide whether to run for reelection
GOP hopefuls for election posts see enemies within own party
Republicans who have promoted false election claims and are running for top state election offices said they were fighting a corrupt system.The candidates - Arizona's Mark Finchem, Michigan's Kristina Karamo, Nevada's Jim Marchant and New Mexico's Audrey Trujillo - said they want to overhaul how elections are run in their states. They appeared at a conference inside a South Florida hotel ballroom that featured numerous speakers falsely claiming that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
U.S. President Joe Biden has announced that he will wait until the mid-term elections to decide whether he will finally run for re-election in 2024.
"It's too early to make that kind of decision (...) What I'm doing is doing my job," Biden said during an interview for the US network CBS, stressing that it remains "to be seen" whether he will run for re-election.
In this sense, the president has pointed to the requirements that the electoral law provides once a candidate officially announces his candidacy for the elections. "Suddenly a whole series of factors come into play," he said.
Georgia's shifting politics force GOP to look beyond Atlanta
TOCCOA, Ga. (AP) — When Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp made one of his first general election campaign swings in August, he went straight to the modern heartland of the state's Republican Party. It wasn't Buckhead, the glitzy Atlanta neighborhood where Kemp lives in a governor's mansion dwarfed by other nearby estates. And it wasn't suburban Cobb County, once the bastion of Newt Gingrich. Instead, Kemp kept going north, deep into the Georgia mountains that have become one of the most Republican areas in the country over the last three decades.
Biden's statements come after an NBC poll pointed to an increase in voting intentions for the Democrats before the mid-term elections, scheduled for early November.
This data, according to the poll, would be related to the Supreme Court's decision to suspend the constitutional right to abortion, known as the 'Roe v. Wade' case. However, the Republican Party continues to have an advantage for the elections.
In fact, around 63 percent of voters believe that their incomes are becoming less and less sufficient in the face of the rising cost of living, while 58 percent also criticize President Biden's economic management.
