Senate Democrats Scrap Private Meeting on Biden’s Future Amid Election Doubts

0:00

A private meeting of Senate Democrats, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, has been abruptly cancelled, according to sources. The meeting, led by Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), was reportedly intended to discuss President Joe Biden’s campaign ahead of the presidential election and gauge support within the party.

The meeting was called in response to Biden’s performance in the first presidential debate, which sparked concerns among some House Democrats who have called on him to withdraw from the ticket. However, once details of the meeting became public, it was deemed impossible to maintain its private nature.

In recent days, several House Democrats have publicly expressed doubts about Biden’s ability to win the election, with some predicting he would lose to former President Donald Trump. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats have remained largely silent on the matter, leaving the meeting to potentially serve as a defining moment for Biden and the party’s political futures.

The cancelled meeting is not the only significant event on the horizon for the Democratic Party. The party’s presidential nominee is expected to be selected at the Democratic National Convention in six weeks’ time, and there are several deadlines to be met should Biden be replaced.
