Newsom’s In Denial About a 2024 Run Despite THIS
The midterms arenât even here yet, and many politicians are talking about 2024. The presidential election seems to be up for grabs from both parties because no one wants to see Joe Biden in for a second term. Even if Biden says that heâll run, thereâs no guarantee that the Democratic Party will allow him to do so.
Gavin Newsom, the slick-haired governor of California, has already been eyeing the possibility of running, not that heâd admit it to anyone. Heâs even challenged Ron DeSantis, who is also expected to announce a run.
Why else would Newsom be putting billboards in Florida?
If you ask Newsom on the streets if heâs planning on running, youâll get an adamant âno.â
Is he telling the truth? Probably not. In fact, heâs most certainly NOT telling the truth. He has an entire campaign system in place to help him with a 2024 presidential run. Of course, weâre not supposed to pay any attention to that.
The digital operation that he has going on is massive. It includes large databases of donors and supporters â and Politico has reported that such databases are unusual for a state official to maintain.
If itâs unusual, there has to be another reason for it all. His recall election has also helped him to do some SERIOUS fundraising. Since the attempt at recalling his vote, heâs raised $113 million. Those are serious sumsâ¦and as Politico noted, âAnd they underscore that Newsom has been able to build what few others in the party can lay claim to: a major digital apparatus allowing him to play in 2022 despite mostly staying off the trail until late.â
Tim Tagaris is the one responsible for Newsomâs online footprint. Tagaris, who has also been a part of Bernie Sandersâ fundraising efforts in 2016, started before the recall. He has helped to grow Newsomâs email list from 250,000 to over 6 million.
Newsom has essentially ignored his reelection campaign. Heâs not concerned for two reasons. If people wanted him out, they would have voted differently during the recall vote. Secondly, thereâs been a mass exodus of homeowners and small business owners, which is considered the Republican base. This means that there is a larger percentage of Democrats sitting in California who actually SUPPORT what the liberal governor is doing.
Rather than campaigning for himself, heâs spent time attacking Republican governors like DeSantis of Florida and Abbott of Texas. And heâs traveled to support other Democrats, including Grisham of New Mexico.
Newsom even traveled to the White House earlier this year while Biden was away. This was all during the time that speculation was high of Biden not running for reelection in 2024.
All signs point to Newsom looking to run for president in 2024. Heâs chosen not to focus on his reelection campaign and heâs growing his online footprint, complete with fundraising to help with a national campaign.
Yet, he still holds strong to the notion that he will not be running for president in 2024. When he was at a recent debate with his Republican challenger, State Senator Brian Dahle, he said it again â he will not be running for president.
Weâre not buying it. Newsom has been known to say one thing and do another throughout his entire political career. Just wait until after the midterms are over. Once others have come forward to say that theyâll be running, itâs likely Newsom will announce that he will be, too.
You donât think heâs going to just sit back and watch DeSantis run without him challenging that, do you?
