First lady Jill Biden indicated during an interview with the Associated Press that President Joe Biden will run for re-election.
"Is there any reason for any of us to think that he is not running again?" a reporter asked the first lady, noting that the president has indicated that it is his intention to run.
"Are you not believing this Darlene?" Jill Biden asked AP reporter Darlene Superville. She then asked how many times the president needs to say so until "you believe it?"
"He says he's not done. He's not finished what he started," the first lady said.
When asked if determining a time and location for the president's announcement is all that remains, the Jill Biden replied, "Pretty much."

Biden, who became the oldest president in U.S. history when he was sworn in at age 78, would be 86 years old by the end of a second term.
Self-described "spiritual thought leader" Marianne Williamson, who ran for president as a Democrat during the last election cycle before dropping out in January 2020, has indicated that she will run again.
If Biden runs and secures the Democratic presidential nomination, Americans may end up with a rematch of the 2020 presidential election during the 2024 contest. Former President Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 race to Biden, has thrown his hat into the ring again for the 2024 election.
But Trump will face challengers during the GOP primary. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who served in that role during a portion of Trump's tenure, has also mounted a White House run. Vivek Ramaswamy also recently announced a presidential bid.
