WASHINGTON – As reported in Politico’s Playbook today, in response to the president announcing his plans to seek reelection, MoveOn members decisively and enthusiastically voted to endorse President Joe Biden for his 2024 campaign. In the organization’s 25-year history, it is the earliest MoveOn members have ever endorsed in a presidential contest. 

Said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting, “President Biden and Vice President Harris have done what millions of MoveOn members sent them to Washington to do: protect our rights and freedoms and blunt right-wing extremism. This moment requires urgency to solidify behind President Biden and show unified resolve to defeat MAGA and build on the progress of the last two years. Each day we wait to define the MAGA right-wing extremists who are running for the Republican nomination is a day wasted. Progressives have Joe Biden’s back and are ready to win, again. MoveOn members were enthusiastic supporters of the 2020 Biden-Harris general election campaign, and they actively campaigned and turned out at the ballot box to help deliver that historic victory. President Biden and Vice President Harris have made good on their promises on the campaign trail in 2020 with a bold, transformational agenda that is among the most progressive in a generation. Now, let’s finish the job.”

MoveOn members have championed President Biden’s leadership and have remained consistently supportive. 

Epting continued, “Our members are fired up and ready for this election and eager to defeat MAGA extremism once again. We’ll be launching one of the biggest electoral programs in our history to secure another Democratic trifecta and defeat MAGA’s very real threats to our freedoms, rights, and futures so that we can continue down the road of progress for all of us.”
