Left-Wing Donors to Fund New Debates if Biden Drops Out

According to a report from The Washington Post, a group of Democratic donors will provide $2 million to fund new debates if Joe Biden drops out of the presidential race.

Bill Harris, a former chief executive of Intuit and PayPal, is leading the effort.

“It’s not that we have to protect ourselves from chaos and drama,” Harris said. “We need drama and a little chaos. I think it can be refreshing and energizing.”

Harris noted that Vice President Kamala Harris is a “very strong candidate” to replace Biden.

He told the outlet that he disagrees with the idea that everyday Americans were not affected by Biden’s poor debate performance, refuting the claim that only those in Washington were displeased by the results.

“It’s the opposite,” Harris said. “The voters have been there for a long time, and it’s the Democratic establishment and the Beltway community that has been so slow and reluctant to face reality.”

According to the report, the donors are hoping for an “open competition” for the Democratic nomination should Biden drop out.
