Congressman James Clyburn of South Carolina, the assistant Democratic leader and a top ally of the Biden White House, told CBS News in an interview Wednesday that he is convinced President Biden will seek reelection even though the president has not yet formally announced another run. “Yes, I am,” Clyburn said when asked if he is convinced that Biden will seek the 2024 Democratic presidential nomination. Clyburn said he speaks regularly with Mr. Biden, and Clyburn said he has encouraged the president  to “announce for reelection” since he believes Mr. Biden has passed “more progressive legislation than any president since Lyndon Baines Johnson.” 

Clyburn’s comments come as Democrats nationally continue to wait for Mr. Biden to jump into the 2024 presidential race, which already includes former President Donald Trump, who announced his bid in November.“In time,” Mr. Biden said earlier this month when asked about when he will announce his decision.
