WASHINGTON, D.C. —Today, President Joe Biden announced he will run for reelection. In 2024, President Biden might face former President Donald Trump, should he win the Republican nomination, in a rematch of the 2020 election.
Stand Up America’s President and Founder, Sean Eldridge, issued the following statement:
“President Biden has been a critical champion for protecting our democracy and the freedom to vote. He helped save American democracy by defeating Donald Trump in 2020, and he did it again by opposing MAGA extremists in last year’s midterm elections. After four years of corruption and chaos under Donald Trump, Biden restored critical democratic norms and ethics to the White House.
“In his campaign announcement, Biden made it clear that protecting our freedoms and our democracy would be a top priority in a second Biden administration. The future of our democracy will once again be on the ballot in 2024. As the Republican field is beginning to take shape, voters should be alarmed by the election deniers, January 6 enablers, and other anti-democratic politicians throwing their hats into the ring. Our community of nearly two million members is ready to mobilize in 2024 to support democracy defenders up and down the ballot.”
Stand Up America was founded in 2016 as a digital-first grassroots community working to resist Donald Trump’s corruption, racism, and his threats to our democracy. From 2017 to 2021, our members made 1.7 million calls to Congress to oppose Trump’s agenda and to call for his impeachment, removal, and disqualification from running for office. In 2020, our volunteers contacted 25 million voters to help defeat Trump and elect Joe Biden to the presidency. In 2022, our team helped build a firewall for democracy ahead of 2024 by electing pro-democracy Secretaries of State in Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, and Nevada, passing key democracy ballot initiatives, and mobilizing our members to get out the vote for progressive candidates nationwide.
