It looks like we have a new frontrunner in the Democrat presidential race IF Joe Biden does not run.
One of the worst politicians in the Democrat Party is reportedly locked into running as long as Joe decides to sit on the sideline.
Sources have stated that Gavin Newsom is ready to run for president.
Even though Joe Biden has had a recent surge in approval ratings, Kamala Harris remains under 40 percent.
Usually, the sitting VP would be considered the favorite in such a race, but that is unlikely to be the case here.
Newsom plans on taking advantage of that.
Even though he is running California into the ground, he is raising his national profile by attacking Governors Abbott and DeSantis on shipping illegals to sanctuary cities.
He has even challenged the likely frontrunner in the GOP if Trump does not run, Governor DeSantis, to a debate.
A top California fundraiser told the Wrap, “After this midterm election is over, he absolutely is going to announce that he is running for the presidency once Biden announces that he is not running.
“No ifs, ands, or buts. He will run if Biden does not.”
Newsom will allegedly try to present himself as moderate much the way Joe Biden did during the 2020 election.
When asked during his recent “60 Minutes” interview about running, Biden stated, “Look, my intention, as I said to begin with, is that I would run again.
“But it’s just an intention.
“But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
Newsom’s camp, of course, has denied the report.
It is a sad state of the Democrat Party that the leading candidates are an underwater president who will be well into his 80s when the race kicks off or a governor who just faced a recall effort.
