Joseph R Biden

Democratic Presidential Candidate Introduction

Pres Joseph R Biden

Candidate Statement: President Biden and Vice President Harris are running for reelection because they believe that every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy and fundamental freedoms – and this is ours.

When President Biden ran in 2020, he said we were in a battle for the soul of America – and we still are. The question now is whether we’ll have more freedoms or fewer in the years ahead. More rights, or fewer.

Under President Biden and Vice President Harris’ leadership, we have made real progress: They took our economy back from the brink and helped create more than 13 million jobs, passed legislation to lower costs for working people while making corporations pay their fair share, took the strongest action on climate in our nation’s history, and restored American leadership on the world stage.

President Biden and Vice President Harris know there is still so much left to be done. Where they passed the first major federal legislation on gun violence in decades, they want to finish the job and ban assault weapons. Where they capped insulin at $35 for Medicare recipients, they know we must cap it for everyone. And where they finally made the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share, they believe we need to do the same for billionaires. They are running for reelection to finish the job.
