(CNN)The Biden White House is going out of its way to tamp down on whispers that he might not run for a second term in 2024.

"Joe Biden is running for reelection, and I will be his ticket mate," Harris told CNN earlier this week. "Full stop." (She later revised her remarks to say that Biden "intends" to run.
)
    So let's take Biden at his word: He's in the 2024 race.
      Read MoreEven if we do that, there's another question that's at least worth asking: Would Biden face a primary challenge? "That's not something I'm encouraging, but it's certainly possible," said Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker earlier this week. "We've seen it in the past." Which is an interesting thing to say! Especially when Pritzker was in New Hampshire earlier this month to speak at the New Hampshire Democratic convention.
        Right? Right! Now, before I go any further, it's important to draw a distinction here between a serious and credible primary challenge to Biden and just someone deciding to run to propel an issue (or themselves) into the national media limelight.The latter is relatively likely to happen -- a sort-of shoestring candidacy that never really threatens Biden or even draws his attention in a meaningful way.The former is rarer -- despite Pritzker's comment. The only time a Democratic president was seriously challenged for his party's nomination in his reelection bid was in 1980, when Jimmy Carter, the incumbent, had to deal with a challenge from Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy.Carter won that primary, narrowly, but the damage inflicted by it played no small part in his blowout loss in the general election to Ronald Reagan. Yes, there are comparisons between Carter and Biden -- at least at this stage of his presidency. Both men used economic stimuli to lower the unemployment rate and help restart a flagging economy. And both have had to deal with the resultant inflation. Neither man was (or, in Biden's case, is) terribly popular with the general electorate. And their liberal party bases didn't (and don't) see eye to eye with them. But there's a reason that it's been more than 40 years since a Democratic president (or, really, any president) has faced a serious primary challenge: Incumbency is a powerful thing -- especially in this age of billion-dollar campaigns and nonstop politicking. It's very, very hard to beat an incumbent -- even a damaged one like Carter or Biden.
          With all of that said, Pritzker represents a unique challenge for Biden if he did decide to run. His family owns the Hyatt hotel chain and his estimated net worth is well north of $3 billion. Which means that if Pritzker wants to run against Biden in 2024, he won't lose for a lack of funds. The Point: History suggests a serious primary challenge to Biden is unlikely. But not impossible.

          Lindor sparks Mets to 8-5 victory over Braves in DH opener

          NEW YORK (AP) — Francisco Lindor doubled off the padding atop the outfield wall in center field to drive in two, Edwin Díaz put out a fire for the final two outs and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 8-5 Saturday in a doubleheader opener.

          Following consecutive walks to Brandon Nimmo and Starling Marte, Lindor hit a drive against Tyler Matzek that bounced off the orange home run line and back into play just in front of Citi Field’s home-run apple. Umpires originally ruled it a double, and that call was confirmed via replay.

          Lindor remained at 19 home runs this season, one shy of his total from all of last season. He had three hits, including an RBI single during a two-run first inning against Jake Odorizzi (4-4). His double stretched New York’s edge to 5-0.

          Pete Alonso upped his NL-best RBI total to 92 with a single, moving 10 ahead of St. Louis first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.

          Jeff McNeil, James McCann and Marte contributed RBI singles as the NL East leaders improved to an MLB-best 30-9 following a loss and moved 4 1/2 games ahead of the Braves.

          Ronald Acuña Jr and Matt Olson hit RBI singles in the seventh for the Braves, who are 4-6 in the season series.

          Olson and Robbie Grossman also had RBI singles during Atlanta’s three-run ninth. Grossman’s single prompted Mets manager Buck Showalter to call for Díaz, and he needed seven pitches to finish his 25th save.

          Spot starter David Peterson (6-2) helped New York’s seventh doubleheader get off to a good start by allowing three hits in 5 1/3 innings for his third scoreless start this year.

          Peterson struck out five and walked three. He constantly got ahead of hitters, throwing first-pitch strikes to 14 of 22 batters.

          Peterson exited to a nice ovation after whiffing Olson on a changeup. Peterson also stranded Acuña at third to end the fifth after the star slugger doubled and just slid in safely ahead of Marte’s throw from right field.

          The left-hander began his outing by loading the bases when he hit Travis d’Arnaud with a pitch. On the next pitch, Grossman lined out to Lindor, and shortly after Peterson escaped, the Mets gave him a 2-0 lead.

          Odorizzi labored through his Atlanta debut after being acquired from Houston. He allowed three runs (two earned) and six hits. Odorizzi fell behind half of the 22 hitters he faced and also committed a throwing error on a pickoff play that led to New York’s third run.

          TRAINER’S ROOM:

          Braves: RHP Darren O’Day (strained left calf) began a rehab assignment at High-A Rome on Friday and threw 13 pitches in the fifth innings to earn the win. O’Day has been sidelined since July 12.

          Mets: RHP Tommy Hunter (low back tightness) was placed on the injured list.

          UP NEXT:

          Atlanta: LHP Max Fried (10-3, 2.58 ERA), who has has the majors’ longest active streak without a homer at nine starts and 59 1/3 innings, starts the second game.

          New York: RHP Max Scherzer (7-2, 2.13) is 2-1 with a 1.62 ERA in six starts since returning from an oblique injury. He starts the second game.
