WASHINGTON— President Joseph R. Biden announced Tuesday that he will be seeking reelection in 2024. The America Votes Senior Leadership Team issued the following statement:

“President Biden has led our nation through unprecedented challenges and built a record of extraordinary leadership and effectiveness. Over the past two years, the Biden-Harris administration has accomplished far more than many believed would be possible, keeping the promises they made during the 2020 campaign and leading our nation forward.

“This administration’s capable leadership has helped to lead us out of the COVID-19 pandemic, defend our democracy from tremendous threats, and protect the fundamental rights of every American. Biden’s legislative record includes protections for LGBTQ+ and interracial couples, meaningful gun violence prevention measures, the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, and the largest ever investment to combat climate change.

“Today, President Biden has articulated a bold vision in defense of our freedoms and progress that stands in stark contrast to MAGA extremists. America Votes and our coalition partners stand ready to build toward progressive victories at every level in 2024. After mobilizing a historic number of voters in 2020 and executing a record-breaking midterm effort in 2022, we will continue to work year-round to build progressive power in states, strengthen our democracy, and protect every American’s right to vote.”

The America Votes Senior Leadership Team is: Greg Speed, President; Sara Schreiber, Executive Director; Daria Dawson, Deputy Executive Director & National Political Director; Heidi Schloesser, Chief Operating Officer; Daniel Gonzales, National Director of Research and Program Innovation; Evan Kost, National Director of Investor Strategy and Program Advisor; Shabab Siddiqui, Director of Data and Targeting; and Josiette White, National Field Director.

America Votes is the central coordination hub of the progressive community both nationally and in more than 20 states across the country, working with more than 400 state and national partner organizations to advance progressive policies, win elections, and protect every American’s right to vote.
