Owens added: “Joe is the right person at the right time for the right job and there is still much work to be done to continue the agenda. There is no daylight between the private individual and the public man. The American people know what Joe is about.’ When asked if Biden would run for president in 2024, Owens confirmed, “Yes. We have work to do. Absolutely.’
