( – On Tuesday, President Joe Biden won enough delegates to be able to become the Democrat’s presumptive nominee in the 2024 presidential race. Biden had first taken office during the pandemic and following the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. He is now seeking reelection in the 2024 presidential race. 

Biden won enough delegates in the race in Georgia in order to push past the 1,968 votes to win the Democratic National Convention nomination in August in Chicago. The nomination will become official after the event. 

Former President Donald Trump has similarly managed to win the necessary delegates to become his party’s presumptive nominee. 

On Tuesday night Biden put out a statement pointing out that this would give voters the right to make a choice about the country’s future. He proceeded to say that this was about defending democracy and restoring people’s right to choose and protect the country’s freedoms. He added that this election was about choosing whether or not the wealthy and corporations would pay their fair share in taxes or if they would continue to run on “the backs of the middle class.”

Biden stated that he believed the American people were going to continue pushing the country into the future and that much like with every crisis the country would only come out stronger and more united. 

President Biden had first tried to win the presidency 37 years ago. Despite his current low approval ratings, there were no serious challengers in the Democratic primary race. Biden’s age has resulted in a lack of enthusiasm about his reelection.
