State and Local Dems Call for Biden to Step Aside Amid Mounting Concerns

As President Joe Biden continues to face calls for him to withdraw from the presidential election and concerns arise about whether he has the mental and physical fitness to serve another term, state and local Democrats are feeling the pressure and are calling for Biden to step aside.

New York Lt. Gov. Antonio Delgado (D), Rep. Pat Ryan (D-NY), and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) were among the growing numbers of Democrats that have called for Biden to withdraw from the race in order for a “nominee capable of re-invigorating and re-energizing Americans” to step forward on the Democrat side.

“President Biden deserves our eternal gratitude for what he has accomplished,” Delgado said in a statement. “By defeating Donald Trump in 2020, and leading our nation’s recovery out of the pandemic, he has helped to restore faith in America both at home and abroad.”

Delgado added that there was “no greater threat to” the democracy of the United States “than former President Donald Trump.”

“He must be defeated. That is why I join with millions of Americans – including everyday New Yorkers from all walks of life – who are expressing legitimate concerns about President Biden’s ability to wage a successful campaign against Trump,” Delgado added.
