Rep. Moskowitz Dismisses Calls for Biden to Exit 2024 Race as “Ridiculous”


Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) dismissed the notion of President Joe Biden exiting the 2024 presidential race, labeling such a suggestion as “ridiculous.”

The Florida congressman responded to a proposal by polling data commentator Nate Silver, who suggested on social media that Biden should consider withdrawing from the race if his poll numbers don’t improve by August. Silver isn’t the only one to make this suggestion; sports commentator Stephen A. Smith and radio host Charlamagne tha God have also hinted that another Democrat could replace Biden.

“No, it’s not a conversation worth having, Nate; thanks for your participation,” Moskowitz stated on Fox News Sunday. “This is ridiculous. We’re well past that conversation. President Biden is going to be the nominee, we’re going to have our convention, and he’s going to win in November.”

Moskowitz pointed out that the election will ultimately ask voters if they want former President Donald Trump back in the White House, given that Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee. He argued that the decision would hinge on voters’ values, asserting that those who prioritize “a woman’s right to choose” and access to contraception won’t be casting their ballots for Trump.

Moskowitz also indicated that the U.S. is currently at the “half time” stage of the presidential election cycle, with the race being “very close” at present. He noted that voters will consider the current state of the economy when making their decision in November.

The congressman’s remarks on the economy follow a Swing State Project poll revealing that 60% of voters disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy, with 73% of respondents ranking the cost of living and inflation among their top three concerns. The poll surveyed 3,969 voters in seven battleground states from May 6 to May 13.

Biden and Trump are set to hold their first debate on June 27, with a second debate scheduled for Sept. 10. These dates were agreed upon after Biden challenged Trump on social media, which the former president accepted.
