On Tuesday, NextGen PAC, a progressive group, endorsed President Biden’s reelection bid for 2024. In their statement, they praised Biden’s efforts when it comes to student debt, LGBTQ rights, reforms in the legal system and the economy, and his promotion of gun safety as some of the reasons that they were supporting his bid.
Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez, the President of the PAC, stated that Biden’s policies make it clear that he is listening to the American people and that he is taking action to help young people across the nation. She further added that young voters were key in going to the polls in 2020 and helping him win his first term in office and that they would undoubtedly do the same for a second time so that they can ensure that he will be able to complete “the job.”
Many high-profile progressives have already announced that they were going to be supporting Biden’s reelection despite having some policies that they disagree on.
Kevin Munoz, a spokesperson for Biden’s campaign stated that young Americans wanted to see a President who was going to fight for their future and for a better and “more equitable America.” He added that President Biden is that person.
One of Biden’s most progressive policies that are helpful to young Americans relates to his student loan forgiveness plan. However, that plan is currently held up in court, which raises questions about the extent to which young voters will choose to back Biden up again.
