Democrat Rep Lets Cat Out of Bag: ‘Off the Record, Biden Is Not Running Again’

Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) has let the cat out of the bag and told The New York Times editorial board, in what she thought was an off-the-record conversation, that President Joe Biden is “not running” for re-election in 2024.

Maloney is battling Jerry Nadler in the Democrat primary after redistricting put the two longtime members of Congress in the same district.

The fight between the two has turned as ugly as you would expect.

The race is a virtual tie so Maloney went to the Times Editorial Board to make her case.

However, she made a flub that could come back to haunt her, and Biden.

When asked about Biden’s 2024 plans, she said, “Off the record, he is not running again.”

The Times Board quickly reminded her that the interview was on the record.

To which Malony said coldly that Biden “should not run.”

Here is a transcript of the conversation:

Eleanor Randolph (NYT reporter): “Should there be an age limit for members of Congress?”

Maloney: “Members of Congress have a term limit.

“It’s called an election every two years. We have a term limit. No one else has to run.”

Eleanor Randolph: “So that’s a no? Is that a no?”

Maloney: “On the record? No, he should not run again.”
