The guy IS running for re-election in November….
He seems to be working to either help his party for the upcoming midterms or, more so, to win the 2024 Democratic Presidential nomination…
He IS commanding MORE headlines than Democratic President Biden, who a majority of Democrats do NOT want him to run for a second term….
Biden maybe doing a good job being the anti-Trump…

Biden should be worried…..
He’s just NOT THAT guy…

Democrats have “a messaging problem,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Tuesday on MSNBC, less than two months out from November’s midterm elections.
“It’s not just a messaging problem, but a messaging problem has persisted in our party for years and years,” Newsom said in a recorded interview with host Alex Wagner.
“We allow these culture wars to take shape, and we are constantly on the back end.”
The discussion of Democratic ethos and strategy came just a few weeks out from November’s midterm elections. Newsom has polled well in his own reelection bid, but in Congress, a number of his fellow Democrats are expected to face a largely uphill battle.
While Newsom acknowledged the party has some substantive challenges as well, he said Democrats could do a better job messaging on issues like crime. For example, nearly all states with the top 10 highest murder rates are Republican-run, Newsom said, “and we’re losing that message.”
