President Joe Biden recently announced that he is going to run for reelection in the 2024 presidential election, but his campaign is off to a rocky start.
Biden reportedly has very few full-time staffers and has not held any fundraising events or reported fundraising totals.
Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump continues on a growth trajectory, soaring in the polls and reporting massive fundraising tallies.
The Biden campaign only has two full-time staffers.
Biden's campaign manager, Julie Chavez Rodriguez, doesn't start her job for another two weeks and continues to be out of the loop on decision making.
Rodriguez still works for the current administration and conflict of interest issues are keeping her at a standstill on the campaign trail.
"The Biden campaign has also incurred a failure to report fundraising totals. What is worse, it does not have an official fundraising team leader. The campaign had reportedly planned to release fundraising totals 48 hours after the president announced his reelection campaign last week, but totals were so low that no funds were reported," reported Breitbart News.
Biden’s 2020 campaign released totals 24 hours after launching a campaign, reporting $6.3 million in campaign funding.
The sluggish fundraising is allegedly due to a lack of coordination between the campaign and large Democrat donors, but some donors were not asked for money on the first day of the campaign at all, according to Breitbart News.
Recent polling shows Trump beating Biden in a general matchup by three to five points.
