NextImg:Minnesota Democrat Dean Phillips eyes White House bid to unseat Biden

Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips is reportedly planning to jump into 2024 White House race and challenge for the Democratic nomination.

The three-term congressman plans to kick off his campaign Friday in Concord, N.H., two sources told Politico.

Democratic consulting firm Fletcher Ridge obtained a permit for the State House Plaza from 8 a.m. to noon Friday, a spokesperson for the Concord Department of Administrative Services said.

Tennessee-based Fletcher has been contacted to work on Phillips’ campaign, a source said.

Meanwhile, New Hampshire Democratic Party chairman Ray Buckley told WMUR-TV that Phillips, 54, told him he’s considering filing for the first-in-the-nation primary ballot before New Hampshire’s filing deadline on Friday.

Still another source cautioned that Phillips still might get cold feet and opt not to launch a longshot campaign to unseat fellow Dem, President Joe Biden.

Earlier this month, Phillips stepped down from his role as co-chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee because of his flirtation with running for president.

Phillips has insisted the 80-year-old President Biden’s advanced age puts him at a big disadvantage to get re-elected and run the country for four more years.

Phillips’ camp did not respond to immediate requests for comment.
