Gavin Newsom Heads to D.C. for Meeting with Biden, Fueling 2024 Presidential Rumors


California Governor Gavin Newsom is set to meet with President Joe Biden and other Democratic governors in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, sparking speculation about his potential 2024 presidential bid. Newsom’s campaign confirmed the trip, stating that he will “stand with the President” at the meeting.

The visit comes as pressure mounts on Biden to step down, with some suggesting that Newsom could take his place as the Democratic nominee. Newsom has maintained a high national profile, leading to rumors of a possible presidential run. Although he has not publicly declared his candidacy, he has spoken out in support of Biden, dismissing calls for the president to drop out.

“I think it’s unhelpful and unnecessary,” Newsom said after the presidential debate. “We’ve got to go in and keep our heads high, and as I say, we’ve got to have the back of this president.”

Newsom’s comments were met with criticism from some, who feel that he is prioritizing his own presidential aspirations over the needs of California. California Republicans have accused him of neglecting his state duties in favor of “daydreaming” about a presidential run.

As Newsom prepares to meet with Biden, his name is being tossed around as a potential presidential candidate. He currently sits as the fourth-most favored candidate to become president on the betting website PredictIt, behind former President Donald Trump, Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris. Comedian Bill Maher has also touted Newsom as a top contender.

Newsom is term-limited and will not be able to seek re-election as governor after 2026. However, his meeting with Biden and other Democratic governors could further fuel speculation about his presidential ambitions.
