POLITICO Expert Outlines Multiple Scenarios for 2024 Elections

Jonathan Martin
Jonathan Martin, politics bureau chief and senior political columnist, POLITICO, entertains the audience at the CalChamber Board of Directors dinner on December 7 with anecdotes from his coverage of national political figures and presidential election politics. He says the 2024 presidential election is going to be unlike any we’ve experienced in modern history and will be a test for democracy. His wide-ranging remarks touch on whether a third party candidate might emerge, as well as explaining how former President Donald Trump’s standing as the front runner for the Republican Party nomination affects Democratic Party politics and protects President Joe Biden from criticism from Democratic stalwarts. Martin is the author of the book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future.
