(RepublicanReport.org) – President Joe Biden met with several other leaders in San Francisco for the 2023 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), who attended with his wife, Jennifer, received heavy praise from the commander-in-chief. Biden even implied that the liberal governor might eventually be next in line as the Dems’ presidential pick.
Daily Mail reports that leaders met for several hours behind closed doors before the November 15 public event, which included live music compliments of No Doubt icon, Gwen Stefani. Biden, when thanking Newsom for hosting the summit, called the California leader “one hell of a governor” and celebrated the state’s diversity. He went on to imply that the sky was the limit for Newsom, who “could have the job I’m looking for.”
Newsom isn’t likely to run against Biden, but there’s a possibility that he might make his bid in 2028. The Golden State’s governor has been one of Biden’s biggest supporters, most recently raking in $3 million for the president’s campaign during a November 14 fundraising event. Critics have slammed the California leader over his poor management of the state, which has led to rampant homelessness. He reportedly scrambled to clean up San Francisco ahead of the APEC meetings, leading some people to wonder where his priorities really lie.
The president’s age has become a growing concern for voters on both sides of the political aisle. Still, the Left has remained steadfast in its decision, with many officials certain he’s the only person who can beat Trump in 2024.
Biden, who turned 81 years old on November 20, currently has two official opponents, neither of which has received any notable attention from their party. Long-standing longshot Marianne Williamson only has about 8.1% of voters’ support according to FiveThirtyEight. Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, who launched his campaign in late October, has also struggled to gain traction, claiming only 4.8% of the estimated primary vote.
