Biden names Whitmer a campaign co-chair for 2024 reelection bid
WASHINGTON (WLUC & AP) - President Joe Biden has named Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer as one of his campaign co-chairs for 2024.
Biden formally announced on Tuesday he’s running for reelection in 2024.
Biden named White House adviser Julie Chávez Rodríguez to serve as campaign manager and Quentin Fulks, who ran Sen. Raphael Warnock’s reelection campaign in Georgia last year, to serve as principal deputy campaign manager. The campaign co-chairs will be Reps. Lisa Blunt-Rochester, Jim Clyburn and Veronica Escobar; Sens. Chris Coons and Tammy Duckworth; entertainment mogul and Democratic mega-donor Jeffrey Katzenberg; and Whitmer.
Whitmer was reelected to her second term as Michigan governor last November.
President @JoeBiden and Vice President @KamalaHarris have spent their first term fighting for our freedom, democracy, and more rights — not less.— Gretchen Whitmer (@gretchenwhitmer) April 25, 2023
But around the country, dangerous extremists are trying to take us backward.
We cannot be complacent. It’s time to finish the job. https://t.co/81Z7CZv8kn
