Democrat Senator Looking to Oust Biden: Report

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) is looking to gather other Senators and demand that Joe Biden drop out of the 2024 presidential race.

According to a report from the Washington Post, Warner has expressed concerns that he fears Biden is unable to beat Donald Trump. The information came from two people familiar with the alleged effort.

Warner’s spokeswoman, Rachel Cohen, told the outlet, “Like many other people in Washington and across the country, Senator Warner believes these are critical days for the president’s campaign, and he has made that clear to the White House.”

The Post noted that while “no sitting Democratic senator has publicly called for Biden to step aside, they’ve privately shared increasing concerns with one another over the past week as they fight an already uphill battle to maintain the Senate majority.”

One Democratic senator said that the upper chamber shares the idea that the “current path may not be sustainable for [Biden],” adding, “Not because of the debate alone but how well he performs in the future. He obviously has to show strength right now.”

American Faith reported that Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) was the first congressman to call on Biden to withdraw from the 2024 presidential election.

“President Biden has continued to run substantially behind Democratic senators in key states and in most polls has trailed Donald Trump. I had hoped that the debate would provide some momentum to change that. It did not. Instead of reassuring voters, the President failed to effectively defend his many accomplishments and expose Trump’s many lies,” Doggett said in a statement.

“President Biden saved our democracy by delivering us from Trump in 2020. He must not deliver us to Trump in 2024,” he added, emphasizing that Biden “has the opportunity to encourage a new generation of leaders from whom a nominee can be chosen to unite our country through an open, democratic process.”
