Self-help author Marianne Williamson announces White House challenge to Biden

MARIANNE Williamson, a self-help author, activist and spiritual adviser, announced yesterday that she is a candidate for the US presidency in 2024, four years after an earlier run for the office drew little support.

Now 70, the iconoclastic author has become the first Democrat to officially enter the 2024 race – even before President Joe Biden – calling on her fellow Americans to reject cynicism and “conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.”
