John Kerry Dismisses Report That He Might Run for President

John Kerry Dismisses Report That He Might Run for President”

But the former Secretary of State caused a kerfuffle Sunday after NBC News published a story detailing a phone call Kerry had in a hotel lobby here. "Any report otherwise is [expletive] (or categorically) false", Kerry wrote on Twitter.

The tweet was deleted within minutes (though not before it was noticed by countless social media users) and replaced by a less profane version, reiterating the same message.

Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden, right, campaigns with former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in Elkader, Iowa on December 6, 2019. Kerry was overheard by an NBC analyst apparently strategizing how he could enter the presidential race now that there was "the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party - down whole". We'll go over what to expect next and what an acquittal could mean for the 2020 elections. Bernie Sanders's recent ascent in the polls.

Kerry told NBC News this was a "complete and total misinterpretation based on overhearing only one side of a phone conversation", and he was listing the reasons why he "could not possibly" compete in the primary. And while Kerry never issued a categorical denial like he did Sunday, the 76-year-old (who was promoting a book at the time) repeatedly said at the time that he doubted he would run for office again. What do voters make of their long list of choices in the Democratic primary, and which candidate has the most momentum going into the caucuses?

Kerry told supporters in late January that he was in New Hampshire campaigning on behalf of Biden, calling the former vice president "the best candidate to beat Trump, unite us, and restore the soul of our nation".
