Biden to Meet With Democrat Governors Wednesday

President Joe Biden is reportedly meeting with the nation’s Democratic Governors Wednesday, less than one week after his disastrous debate performance with Donald Trump.

Multiple sources confirmed that the meeting was in the works of being scheduled, and likely to be virtual.

“Democratic governors are some of the President and Vice President’s most proactive and vocal supporters because they’ve seen how the Biden-Harris Administration’s accomplishments are directly benefiting their residents. The Biden/Harris team is in constant communication with the governors and their teams, including about yesterday’s meeting,” a national Democratic official told Fox News.

The news comes just days after Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) told reporters that he would “never” turn his back on Biden following the president’s failed debate against Donald Trump.

“I would never turn my back on President Biden. Never turn my back on President Biden. I don’t know a Democrat in my party that would do so. And especially after tonight, we have his back,” he said. “We run, not the 90-yard dash. We are all in. We’re going to double down in the next few months. We’re going to win this election.”

Newsom emphasized his stance in an email sent by Newsom to supporters, which read, “I am old fashioned, but on the substance Joe Biden won the debate last night. That is what matters to me.”

“All this other talk… it’s unhelpful and unnecessary. We aren’t going to turn our backs because of one performance,” the email continued. “What kind of party does that?”

“Joe Biden has delivered — and we need to deliver for him in this moment. We’re talking about the fate and future of our democracy, this country and the world. They all need us right now,” Newsom added. “That’s what I intend to do, and I hope you’ll join me.”

Last year, Biden declared that Newsom could be “anything he wants, he could have the job I’m lookin’ for.”

Newsom has repeatedly insisted that he will not replace Biden as the Democratic presidential nominee.
