Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, is open to running for president in 2024 if President Joe Biden declines to seek reelection, the Washington Post reported Wednesday, citing a campaign memo. “In the event of an open 2024 Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Sanders has not ruled out another run for president, so we advise that you answer any questions about 2024 with that in mind,” says the memo from Faiz Shakir, a close Sanders adviser who was his campaign manager when he ran in 2020. The Post said the memo was shared with the newspaper but that Shakir did not respond to a request for comment. Biden has said he intends to run for reelection, but as the Post writes, he cautioned last year that he had “never been able to plan 31/2, four years ahead, for certain.”
