US President Joe Biden has officially announced his candidacy for re-election in 2024. In a three-minute video released early Tuesday, Biden, who is currently 80 years old, framed next year’s contest as a battle against Republican extremism, implicitly arguing that he needed more time to fully realize his vow to restore the nation’s character.

“When I ran for president four years ago, I said we were in a battle for the soul of America. And we still are. The question we are facing is whether, in the years ahead, we have more freedom or less freedom, more rights or fewer. I know what I want the answer to be, and I think you do too. This is not a time to be complacent. That’s why I’m running for re-election,” he said in the video.

The announcement sets the stage for a battle to convince the country that his record merits another four years in the White House and that his age won’t impede his ability to govern.

The 46th US president argued that abortion rights, defense of democracy, voting rights, and the social safety net will be among the most important issues on the ballot in 2024. He stated that voters will be faced with the choice of leaving the next generation with “more freedom or less” and “more rights or fewer”.

“Every generation of Americans has faced a moment when they’ve had to defend democracy, stand up for our personal freedoms, and stand up for our right to vote and our civil rights. This is ours.”

The Biden campaign will also ride on promoting the achievements made during the first two years of his presidency, stating that he needs to “finish the job. I know we can,” he said.

Biden’s official declaration ends any lingering doubts about his intentions and begins a contest that could evolve into a rematch with his 2020 rival, former President Donald Trump.

He enters the race with a significant legislative record but low approval ratings, an issue his advisers have so far been unable to solve. Already the oldest president in history, he also confronts persistent questions about his age. However, Biden’s strong commitment to fulfilling his campaign promises, and his dedication to restoring democracy and personal freedoms in the United States, make him a formidable candidate.
