Top Democrats are calling for Joe Biden to drop out

President Joe Biden is facing increasing pressure from some members of his party to withdraw from the 2024 race following his debate debacle in late June. In a remarkable drip of defections, some prominent Democrats have publicly urged the president to drop out and have voiced concerns that he cannot win against Donald Trump in November.

Here’s a running list of top Democrats, including sitting members of Congress, who have called for Biden to pull out of the ticket:

Washington Rep. Adam Smith

Smith on Sunday was one of four senior Democrats to call for Biden to drop out of the 2024 race during a phone call convened by House Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York, reported NBC News, citing multiple people familiar with the discussion.

Smith is the top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee.

New York Rep. Jerry Nadler

Nadler was another one the four senior Democrats to call for Biden’s withdrawal from the race during the call with Jeffries, according to NBC News. He is the top Democrat on on the House Judiciary Committee.

California Rep. Mark Takano

Like Smith and Nadler, Takano voiced his concern with Biden’s re-election bid on the call with Jeffries, reported NBC News. He is the top Democrat on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee.

New York Rep. Joe Morelle

Morelle joined Smith, Nadler and Takano on the Sunday call with Jeffries in saying Biden should step aside as presumptive Democratic nominee, NBC News reported. He is the top Democrat on the House Administration Committee.

Minnesota Rep. Angie Craig

On Saturday, Craig became the fifth House Democrat to call for Biden’s withdrawal from the race. She said in a statement that she does not believe Biden can win against Trump, given Biden’s debate performance and “the lack of a forceful response” from him afterward.

“This is not a decision I’ve come to lightly, but there’s simply too much at stake to risk a second Donald Trump presidency,” Craig said.
