The world may soon discover the most suitable collective noun to describe a gathering of past and present Democrat presidents. A unique fundraiser is being proposed to support President Joe Biden, where the potential 2024 presidential candidate would join forces with former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama on the same stage.
According to an NBC News report, this is the intended plan. Four individuals familiar with the discussions revealed that the idea is for the three presidents to come together for a fundraising event this spring.
“The plan underscores the belief among Biden allies that the party needs an all-hands-on-deck approach to help him win a second term.
It’s also just one in a growing list of ways that Democratic leaders, and the Biden campaign, are gearing up for a general election they view as having the highest of stakes.”
The Biden campaign chose not to provide any comments, as stated in the story. Similarly, representatives for Clinton and Obama also declined to comment, although they continue to maintain popularity among Democrats.
However, Republican voters do not share the same level of enthusiasm. Clinton and Obama have been highly controversial figures for the GOP, with Clinton facing criticism from his own party for his handling of sexual assault allegations during his time in the White House and prior to that.
While it is still uncertain whether the event will proceed as planned, recent polls indicate that Biden could benefit from any support he can gather.
