(CNN) Many Democratic leaders, operatives and officials are cautiously warming to the idea of President Joe Biden running for reelection in 2024, dozens of high-ranking Democrats told CNN.
But as much as most Democrats would love to be finished with the endless "Is he going to run?"
"He will decide when he decides," a top Democrat who speaks to the President told CNN, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss a highly sensitive subject.
"Tough question, because I'm not sure he's going to run for reelection," Henderson said.
Told that Biden has said he intends to run, Henderson signed on immediately: "If he's running, then I've got his back."
"The President has consistently said he intends to run for reelection and that is something both Dr. Biden and the family fully supports," the adviser said.
"The best thing that could set us up for whatever it's going to be, whether it's President Biden or.... somebody if we do not get slaughtered in this midterm," Lee said.
She told CNN that Biden "should" run, and "we will support him."
Sources tell CNN that many more elected officials on Capitol Hill than have said so publicly remain undecided on whether they want Biden to run again.
"He's always said he intends to run, and we take him at his word," former Rep. Cedric Richmond, a Biden adviser and senior DNC adviser, told CNN.
Yet if Biden does decide to run -- and Trump is his challenger -- Blaisdell said she would back him without reservation.
"I'm for holding off the s---show that will come after him for four more years," one state party chair told CNN.
