Democrats Circle Wagons Around Biden Amid Criticism and Calls for Withdrawal

In the wake of President Joe Biden’s lackluster performance during the presidential debate on June 27, several Democrats have scrambled to shield him from criticism and calls for his withdrawal from the race. House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Sen. Bob Casey, and Sen. Mark Warner have all stepped up to voice their unwavering support for Biden.

While Casey dodged questions about Biden’s fitness for office, he made it known that he believes the Democratic Party already has its two nominees in Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, indicating his stance on the matter. Jeffries, on the other hand, reaffirmed his support for Biden, emphasizing that his position has remained steadfast since the day after the debate.

Warner, who was previously rumored to be rallying Senate Democrats to push for Biden’s withdrawal, emphasized the dangers of another term under former President Donald Trump and praised Biden for his leadership during challenging times. He urged Biden to step up his efforts in communicating with the American people and seeking input from a wider array of voices to combat Trump’s alleged “lawlessness.” 


Rep. Grace Meng also joined the chorus of support for Biden, urging Democrats to focus on moving forward rather than dwelling on past debate performances. This united front from Democratic leaders comes in response to growing concerns within the party over Biden’s ability to effectively lead and communicate with the public.

Despite mounting pressure and calls for his withdrawal, Biden has reaffirmed his commitment to continue running for president. At a rally in Wisconsin, he asserted his determination to win the election, brushing aside doubts raised by his critics. With the 2024 presidential race heating up, Democrats are rallying behind Biden in a bid to keep the party unified and maintain their hold on the White House.
