The Caucus Has Just Met Over GROWING CONCERNS About President Biden


As party members’ worries persist, Democratic senators are likely to address President Biden and his position as head of the Democratic ticket in November during their weekly caucus meeting on Tuesday.


According to a source close to the senator, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., had been attempting to get a group of Democratic senators to get together on Monday to talk about a way forward in the wake of Biden’s discussion with former President Trump, Fox News Digital was informed.


The senator from Virginia was attempting to arrange a meeting, but it is no longer being sought. Reports of a possible meeting surfaced, but details were not yet confirmed. The Democrats decided not to call a special meeting to discuss the president in light of the disclosures.


Rather, the caucus will discuss the predicament at their Tuesday policy lunch, which is already planned.


“Now is the time for conversations about the strongest path forward, with so much riding on the outcome of the upcoming election,” Warner stated in a statement on Monday afternoon. “As these conversations continue, I believe it is incumbent upon the President to more aggressively make his case to the American people and to hear directly from a broader group of voices about how to best prevent Trump’s lawlessness from returning to the White House.”

Fox News Digital did not receive a response from Warner’s office in time for publishing. Even as his debate gaffe dominated the news cycle, a number of House Democrats have publicly voiced their misgivings about Biden’s selection as the Democratic nominee. However, the senators from the party have remained considerably quieter.


However, by Monday afternoon, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Jon Tester of Montana, two weaker Democrats, had commented on Biden’s suitability to carry on with his campaign.


Tester asserted that Biden now had to demonstrate to him and the nation that he could serve a further four years in office. Although Brown didn’t go as far, he did mention that Ohioans on the ground were expressing concerns to him. The most important public development in the upper chamber late last week was the disclosure that Warner, the chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and a frequent collaborator with Republican colleagues on the other side of the aisle, was attempting to arrange a meeting solely to discuss Biden’s candidacy.


In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Friday, Biden responded, “Well, Mark is a good man,” when asked about Warner’s effort. He also attempted to obtain the nomination, something we’ve never had. Mark’s not; my viewpoint differs from Mark’s. He has my respect.


After his interview failed to allay party fears, Biden also wrote a letter to congressional Democrats on Monday. The president claims that he is “firmly committed to staying in this race.” He went on to caution other Democrats, saying that voicing worries about his campaign “only helps Trump and hurts us.”
