Senate Majority Leader DECLINES COMMENT

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., has declined to address President Biden’s dismal performance in last month’s presidential candidate debate against former President Trump or the doubts it has aroused in the minds of many regarding Biden’s eligibility for reelection.


Fox News Digital questioned Schumer’s staff on Monday on his thoughts on Biden’s performance in the debate and whether the president’s interview with ABC News last week allayed any worries among the Democratic senators. Schumer’s team was also questioned about if he thought Biden should be the Democratic nominee, whether he had any suggestions for a substitute, and what he thought about other Democrats’ outspoken misgivings about Biden.


The office of the leader did not reply. The majority leader has been silent about the argument or the growing anxieties of Democrats. He did, however, reiterate to reporters on Monday that he still believes in Biden, as he did last week.


On July 2, he declared, “I’m with Joe Biden,” at a press conference in New York. He apparently repeated, “I’m for Joe,” when he entered the Senate on Monday. Democrat strategists, staff members, and politicians were almost immediately alarmed by Biden’s performance during the debate. However, public officials—especially those in leadership roles—have refrained from disclosing any such worries.

By Monday afternoon, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Jon Tester of Montana, two vulnerable Democratic senators, had offered their opinions on Biden’s suitability to carry on with his campaign.


Biden needs to demonstrate to Tester and the nation that he can serve for another four years. Although Brown didn’t go as far, he did mention that Ohioans on the ground were expressing concerns to him. The president has downplayed the concerns expressed by Democrats. “I wouldn’t be running again if I did not absolutely believe I was the best person to beat Donald Trump in 2024,” Biden stated in a letter to congressional Democrats on Monday. It is anticipated that Senate Democrats will talk about their opinions of Biden’s ongoing campaign on Tuesday afternoon during a regularly scheduled policy lunch.


Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., first attempted to gather Democrats for a meeting on Monday to expressly address concerns about Biden. He has subsequently disclosed his plan to have a conversation about “the strongest path forward” for Democrats in 2024. The Democrats chose to address the matter as a whole caucus once the press was informed about such attempts.
