Calls Within Democratic Circles to Reassess 2024 Candidacy

U.S. President Joe Biden

United States: Some Democrat supporters of Joe Biden questioned his 2024 re-election campaign anew on Tuesday, with one of them urging him to pull out, a scenario that many continued to support him after a shaky performance in the just-end debate.

Upcoming Meetings to Rally Support

Biden will host a conference call with Democratic governors on Wednesday and address House Democrats this week, according to White House aides, after Biden’s nationally televised debate performance against Trump, as reported by Reuters.

Efforts to Quell Speculation

The Wednesday’s White House meeting, which is likely to be mostly conducted by video conference as most of the governors will be joining the meeting from their homes, will offer the president an opportunity to convince the leaders of his party in the United States that he is not only in the right state of mind to vie for the presidency but also in good health as some of the opponents had wanted him to quit the race as the Democratic Party’s nominee.

One official confirmed that Biden would also be meeting with leaders from Capitol Hill this week as he continues to rally loyal Democrats and try to quell speculation that he should leave the race.

On Tuesday, U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett became the first congressional Democrat to announce that he wants Biden to step out of the presidential race.

The meetings are parts of a wide array of efforts to shore up the president’s re-election campaign after a rather shaky performance on the Atlanta debate stage.

His team spoke to important campaign supporters on the phone over the past Sunday and Monday, in which some asked the 81-year-old Democrat to quit the presidential race.

Pelosi and Other Leaders Weigh In

Speaking to MSNBC on Tuesday, Pelosi commended Biden for the several got legislations, although she wondered, whether it was a one-night stand or has Biden has had more severe health complications during the debate. She argued that the same should be done to Trump.

“I think it’s a legitimate question to say, ‘is this an episode or is this a condition?’ And so when people ask that question, it’s legitimate, of both candidates,” Pelosi said, as reported by Reuters.

Concerns About Impact on Other Races

“He has to be honest with himself,” Democratic Representative Mike Quigley, a moderate from Illinois, told CNN on Tuesday. “It’s his decision. I just want him to appreciate at this time just how much it impacts not just his race but all the other races coming in November.”
