Marianne Williamson, a far-left progressive who ran for president in 2020, confirmed in an interview published Thursday that she will run again for the Democratic nomination for president in 2024.
That would put her in a Democratic primary against President Biden, who has not announced his own plans but is expected to run for reelection next year.
“I wouldn’t be running for president if I didn’t believe I could contribute to harnessing the collective sensibility that I feel is our greatest hope at this time,” Williamson told the Medill News Service, which is run by Northwestern University, in an exclusive interview.
No other Democrats have officially entered into the race yet, making Williamson the first. Williamson previously teased “an important announcement” that she said she would make on March 4, which has been speculated as a presidential announcement.
Biden was expected to make an announcement that he will be running for reelection in the coming weeks, multiple sources told The Hill last month, though it’s unclear when that might happen.
