President Biden announced his bid for a second four-year term in a video posted online, taking aim at what he called a threat posed by Republican extremists.
The announcement set in motion the possibility of a rematch with former President Donald Trump. Biden, who would be 86 at the end of a possible second term, is betting his first-term legislative achievements and more than 50 years of experience in Washington will count more than concerns over his age.
