After Democrats outperformed the polls and avoided a ‘red wave’ in the midterm elections, President Joe Biden said that his “intention is to run again” in 2024.

President Joe Biden's unrelenting election optimism may not have been entirely misplaced. Biden was insistent throughout the fall that his presidency could defy the odds and that the Democratic Party would not suffer the steep midterm losses that were associated with his predecessors.
As of Wednesday morning, Democrats were still expected to lose their House majority, with dozens of races too close to call. But a handful of front-line lawmakers who were elected in a 2018 wave and are seen as rising stars in the Democratic Party have already been declared safe.
They include Reps. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, Elissa Slotkin of Michigan and Sharice Davids of Kansas. Democratic Reps. Chris Pappas of New Hampshire and Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey were also reelected. The big surprise of the night was Pennsylvania, where Democrats succeeded in flipping a seat with John Fetterman.
