California Democrat Slams Biden Campaign for it’s ‘Arrogance’ as Post-Debate Crisis Continues

On Thursday, Representative Seth Moulton (Mass.) reportedly became the third Democratic member of the House to openly urge President Biden to withdraw from the presidential contest following his lackluster debate performance the previous week, which alarmed his friends.

“As much as I love Joe Biden, in those swing states, he’s having a hard time. We needed a boost from Thursday. We didn’t get it. And the campaign has been very, I think, arrogant in their response.” he said during a recent interview.

“We want to know what [the Biden campaign’s] plan is to win this election and turn these numbers around. If they don’t have a plan, then I think we have to move in a different direction.” he continued.

As doubts about Biden’s ability to lead the Democratic ticket persist, Moulton, a rival to Biden for the 2020 presidential candidacy, stated on Wednesday that his party should consider “all viable possibilities.”

Biden is staying in the presidential campaign, the White House insisted on Wednesday, and party leaders have openly endorsed him.

In an email sent on Wednesday for fundraising, Biden stated that no one “is pushing” him “out” of the race.

Nevertheless, this week saw a break in the Democrats’ backing for Biden. Democratic congressmen from the center, Jared Golden of Maine and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez of Washington, have expressed their belief that Trump will defeat Biden in November.

Furthermore, a number of Democrats discreetly disclosed that since the debate, discussions regarding Biden’s position atop the ticket have been taking on behind closed doors.

Moulton publicly calls for Biden to drop out of the race, joining his House colleagues Reps. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) and Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariza).
