Is California Gov. Gavin Newsom Preparing for a Presidential Run?

( – As Democrats start considering whether they should remove the ailing and legally precarious incumbent President Joe Biden off the 2024 election ticket, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has developed a fundraising drive that resembles those of presidential hopefuls.

A year ago, Newsom notified the White House that he had no intention of running for president in 2024, specifically to avoid opposing Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, given that they are from Newsom’s home state of California and San Francisco.

However, the situation has since changed.

Even if the economy is doing well, Biden’s age is beginning to show in the polls, and there is proof that he participated in a successful scheme to buy influence by employing his son as a middleman with foreign corporations.

As a result, he may even be the subject of an impeachment investigation.

Democrats may start looking for alternatives as a result, and Newsom may start a nationwide operation. According to The Sacramento Bee:

“Gov. Gavin Newsom is taking fundraising steps often used by potential presidential candidates, setting up multiple committees that have raised and spent millions of dollars in their first three months.

The three Newsom-affiliated committees are a political action committee, which limits contributions to $5,000 a year and can donate to individual candidates; a SuperPAC, which can raise unlimited amounts of cash but is restricted from promoting a specific candidate.

And a joint fundraising committee, which functions like a bank, mostly collecting and distributing funds to the other groups.

Forming the trio of fundraising committees allows prospective candidates like Newsom to build a base of support and explore a run for federal office without saying it outright, according to Brendan Glavin, senior data analyst at Open Secrets.”

As Breitbart News has observed, time is running out to qualify for the primary ballots, so Newsom would face strict deadlines if he wants to enter the contest or if Biden withdraws.

However, Democrats might make a late flip, as they have in the past.
