Marianne Williamson, a prominent progressive who ran for president in 2020, confirmed in an interview published Thursday that she will run again for the Democratic nomination for president in 2024.
That would put her in a Democratic primary against President Biden, who has not announced his own plans but is widely expected to run for reelection next year.
“I wouldn’t be running for president if I didn’t believe I could contribute to harnessing the collective sensibility that I feel is our greatest hope at this time,” Williamson told the Medill News Service, which is run by Northwestern University, in an exclusive interview.
No other Democrats have officially waded into the race yet, making Williamson the first. Williamson previously teased “an important announcement” that she said she would be making on March 4, which has been speculated as a presidential announcement.
Williamson gained notoriety during the 2020 presidential race, especially during the first several presidential primary debates where some of her spiritual remarks won her fans online. However, her campaign last one year, and she dropped out in January 2020.
During her interview with the Medill News Service, she also criticized the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) decision to change the early presidential primary schedule, which places South Carolina as the first state in the lineup. South Carolina, where Biden placed first in 2020, is widely credited for helping boost his momentum in that Democratic primary.
“How can you claim to be a champion of democracy when your own process is so undemocratic?” Williamson told the student-run news outlet.
The news comes as polling has often shown Democrats less favorable of a Biden reelection bid. One poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research , for example, saw only 37 percent of members of his party polled supportive of a second Biden term.
37 percent of Democrats are actually THAT stupid. Think about that for a minute.
It seems the DNC is chuck full of nobody—wannabe’s, morons, narcissists and inbred fagtards. I guess if they vote gor them, it truly reflects what is in and about that party!
Don’t forget the term “progressive,” which is how she’s characterized. Another word for Marxist. No thanks, enough of those in Congress!
The circus is coming with more dead brains trying to rule!
What a freaky joke!
But what did you expect someone with a working brain? There is none as they have proven in the Democratic Party!
kinda scary when these unknowns pop up out of nowhere. Look at the past—-Carter (unknown except to GA) Obama (unknown except to IL) Hillary and Bill (except to AR) AOC a total unknown and look where she ended up—all paid off by George Soros Also Buttiejudge, totally paid off, Rachel Levine also.
SORRY…..PEOPLE……WE DON’T NEED ANY WOMAN AS A PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY. WE CAN’T EVEN GET ANY MEN TO BE DESENT PRESIDENTS….MEANING THE IDIOTS AND MORONS LIKE OBAMA AND BIDEN. TRUMP IS AND WAS OK….HE WAS FOR THE PEOPLE AND GOT THINGS DONE. !!!! OBAMA AND BIDEN ARE BOTH THE BIGGEST WASTE OF SPACES THAT THERE EVER HAS BEEN……
