Here Are The Dems Refusing To Endorse A Biden Run In 2024

Top Democrats are losing faith in President Joe Biden’s chances of winning re-election in 2024 and stating they want a change in leadership, the Washington Examiner reported Thursday.

Nearly 54% of voters disapprove Biden’s performance as president, data from a Rasmussen Reports poll  showed. The 79-year-old president’s advanced age coupled with a stagnating economy and consistently negative polling is signaling to top Democratic representatives that it might be time to pump the brakes in 2024, the Washington Examiner reported.

Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, who are running for the same seat in Manhattan due to redistricting, both declined to openly support a Biden 2024 run during a debate between the two incumbents, according to the Washington Examiner. Nadler serves as the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, while Maloney heads the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

When asked whether he would support Biden’s reelection effort, Nadler responded that it was “too early to say” whether Biden would even mount another campaign, according to the New York Post. Maloney, who later recanted her skepticism, said she did not believe Biden was “running for reelection.”

The two powerful chairs are the latest in a stream of Democrats attempting to distance themselves from Biden, accordingto Politico.

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips said the party “would be well served by a new generation of compelling, well-prepared, dynamic Democrats to step up,” during a radio interview with WCCO. Phillips declined to support a Biden re-election campaign.

His opponent, Democratic Rep. Angie Craig, agreed with Philips during a campaign event when asked by the MinnPost whether she would support Biden’s campaign.

“I would say we need new leaders in Washington up and down the ballot in the Democratic Party,” Craig answered.

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia has repeatedly refused to support a second-reelection bid by the President. Manchin told former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, “we will have to wait and see.”

Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia has sought to distance themselves while on the campaign trail by crediting bipartisanship, instead of Biden’s leadership, for the key legislative wins of the session, according to the Associated Press.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortes avoided committing to supporting a second Biden-run, during an interview in June with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.” Cortes said Democrats should “cross that bridge when we get to it.”

Representatives for Nadler, Maloney, Phillips, Craig, Manchin, Warnock and Cortes did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
