House Democrats hold first meeting since Biden debate fallout

(NewsNation) — House Democrats had their first meeting since President Joe Biden’s debate performance spurred calls for him to drop out of the 2024 election.

The meeting, which took place behind closed doors Tuesday, wrapped up after only one hour.

During the first presidential debate in June, Biden stumbled through his words and appeared at times to be confused while facing off against presumed Republican nominee and former president Donald Trump, causing some to question his mental fitness. Trump, meanwhile, also faced criticism for making for multiple false statements.

Although Biden and his campaign have maintained he is staying in the race, the number of people urging him to step aside is growing. At the same time, several lawmakers are voicing support for the president as the Democratic nominee.

“Well, he’s a good man. He has good policies, there’s no reason to change,” U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said coming out of Tuesday’s caucus meeting.

Other lawmakers stood by Biden as well, including Rep. Kweisi Mfume of Maryland, who flashed reporters a thumbs-up and said “Joe Biden all the way” as he left the meeting.

“I think he is our best hope to make sure Donald Trump does not get into the White House,” said Rep. Shri Thanedar of Michigan.

However, Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, who previously said in an interview with MSNBC that Biden needs to step aside to prevent “utter catastrophe,” affirmed his position to reporters.

“The pride and courage that served the country so well four years ago to help Joe Biden win will bring the ticket down this time,” Quigley said.
