Although Biden is expected to be the Democratic Party's presidential nominee in 2024, he won't be able to run uncontested. There are still some people who are considering a challenge to him, and we'll take a look at them.
Robert Kennedy Jr., the son of the former US President Robert Kennedy, has been a controversial figure in the Democratic primary. He has criticized both Biden and Donald Trump for their handling of the COVID-19 vaccine issue. Despite his rise in the polls, Biden still maintains a substantial lead over his rivals. The decision by the DNC to move SC up in the primary list could mean that Biden's nomination is already solidified.
Self-help expert and former candidate for the 2020 Democratic primary Marianne Williamson is in the mix, but she has not been able to gain much traction. She has criticized the Democratic National Committee and its members for supporting Joe Biden, though she may not be on the ballot for the primary.

Minnesota's Dean Phillips is a moderate Democrat who is being floated as a potential challenger to Biden. Unlike the other Democrats, he has not endorsed Biden's re-election campaign. He also reached out to Cornel West, the Green Party's candidate, to challenge him. Despite his lack of endorsements, Phillips has not ruled out a potential challenge.
Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who is from a red state, has been criticized by liberal groups due to his past votes against his party. Despite his name recognition, he is not considered a likely candidate for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. A unity ticket would have a hard time defeating an incumbent president, especially if the country is divided.
Although there are still people who are considering challenging Biden, it is still likely that he will be the party's nominee in 2024. As a conservative journalist, it's interesting to watch the developments within the Democratic Party. This shows the party's ideological differences, which could affect their chances of winning the general election.
