During his first formal press conference Thursday, Joe Biden revealed another first he has his sights set on. He hopes to become the nation’s first octogenarian commander-in-chief.

When asked by reporters whether he would run for reelection in 2024, Biden confirmed he planned to do so and said that was his “expectation.” His declaration apparently surprised the White House Press Corps because reporters had to ask repeatedly for clarification.

The disbelief wasn’t limited to the East Room of the White House as comments from the campaign trail resurfaced online. In December of 2019, nearly a full year before Election Day, Politico cited four people close to Biden that said the candidate had been signaling to aides that in the event he won he only planned on serving one term.

All spoke on the condition of anonymity and all agreed that the idea of Biden, who will be 82 in 2024, running for reelection was “virtually inconceivable.”

After the article was posted in 2019, Biden’s deputy campaign manager was there to save face and deny everything. Biden, alone behind the podium, tried to backtrack.

“Look, I don’t know where you guys come from, man…I’m a great respecter of fate,” he stated. “I’ve never been able to plan four and a half, three and a half years ahead for certain.

Even if Biden can’t plan three and a half years ahead for certain, recent FEC filings show that others can think ahead to 2024 and many have already set up PAC’s to help their candidates succeed.
