While President Biden hasn’t formally announced a 2024 campaign yet, he is widely expected to run for president again. But before he officially launches his campaign, he’ll need to decide who will join his senior campaign leadership team.

I’m Brianna Tucker, a deputy politics editor for The Washington Post. I’ve covered Congress, climate, three election cycles, and was tuned in during all 15 rounds of Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s path to the speakership — shout out to C-SPAN. I’m answering your questions every Tuesday about politics and 2024, and sharing the inside scoop from our reporters on the campaign trail.

This week, I was joined by national political reporter Michael Scherer. He’s covered everything from the early state primary calendar to the numerous Fox News controversies and how they could impact the Republican primary.

This week’s chat is over, but you can read a transcript of the discussion below. Please note that questions may be edited for accuracy and clarity.
