Further Speculation of Hillary Clinton 2024 Presidential Run Swirls
Clinton will again step out into the political spotlight
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will again step out into the political spotlight during the convention of the New York Democratic Party next week.
It is not clear when Clinton is expected to speak as Empire State Democrats gather in Manhattan, as CNBC reported.
“She’s beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party, and her popularity is likely higher than that of President [Joe] Biden,” one source said.
“It’s good for her because it keeps her relevant, and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience,” the source added.
Chief of staff for party chair Jay Jacobs, Chris Melnyczuk, did not confirm nor deny Clinton’s participation.
“We’ve reached out to a number of people to speak and, you know, we’re waiting back on confirmation from a number of people. So there are a few things in the works,” he said.
In 2018, Clinton endorsed former Gov. Andrew Cuomo when she appeared at the party convention.
The Democratic Party candidate for president represented New York in the U.S. Senate prior to serving as secretary of state in the Obama administration.
Last month, a former advisor to Bill Clinton said he believes there is a “good chance” Hillary Clinton will run against Donald Trump in 2024 if Joe Biden loses Congress in the midterms.
As Neon Nettle reported:
Dick Morris’s claims echo Clinton’s frequent hints she may run against Trump again, and in some cases declaring, “I can beat him again.”
Morris said a rematch between Clinton and Trump could be on the cards if Democrats fail to pull successful results in the November election, arguing that such a failure would see the party turn on both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Speaking to WABC radio host John Catsimatidis, Morris said there’s “a good chance of it,” referring to the possible presidential rematch.
In Janaury, two prominent Democrats promoted the idea that Hillary Clinton is the party’s “best option” for keeping control of the White House after the 2024 presidential election.
As Neon Nettle reported at the time:
Democratic consultant and pollster Douglas Schoen and former New York City Council president, Manhattan borough president, and state assemblyman Andrew Stein pushed the idea of putting Clinton forward at the Democrats’ nominee for the presidential election in an opinion piece.
If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, "Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option,” Schoen and Stein opine in the Wall Street Journal.
