Breathing room for Biden: Big summer wins ease 2024 doubts


WASHINGTON (AP) – President Joe Biden insists he intends to seek reelection in 2024.

A series of legislative and policy wins have lately made it easier to believe him – or at least have temporarily quieted questions on the topic.

That’s a departure from mere weeks ago, when some top Democrats were struggling with questions about whether the oldest president in American history trying for four more years in office would help or hurt his party.

Biden himself insists there’s clamor for him to run despite polling and poor approval ratings suggesting the opposite.

But, for a few weeks this summer, the president and Democrats seem to have some political breathing room.
