D.C., February 1 (Reuters) – President Joe Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, stated on Wednesday that Biden would seek re-election in 2024 as he prepared to leave his position as a senior member of the White House staff.

Advisors anticipate that Biden, 80, will formally announce his plan to run for a second four-year term in the coming weeks. Biden has regularly stated his ambition to do so.

In the White House East Room, with Biden by his side, Klain held back tears as he addressed dozens of staff workers, many of whom identify as “Klainiacs,” in an emotional farewell speech.

I look forward to supporting you when you run for president in 2024, like I did in 1988, 2008, and 2020, Klain remarked.

According to his press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, Biden must finish his physical by February 16.

As he heard Klain’s address, the president appeared to be wiping away tears.

To state the obvious, I knew this day would come, but that doesn’t make it any easier, Biden remarked.

Jeff Zients, who oversaw the COVID pandemic response during the Biden administration, would succeed Klain as chief of staff.
