BREAKING: Sitting Democrat Lloyd Doggett Publicly Call President Joe Biden To Step Down

BREAKING: Sitting Democrat Lloyd Doggett Publicly Call President Joe Biden To Step Down—-Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) became the first House Democrat to call on President Joe Biden to drop out of the presidential election following his poor debate performance against former President Donald Trump last week.

 

“President Biden has continued to run substantially behind Democratic senators in key states and in most polls has trailed Donald Trump.

 

I had hoped that the debate would provide some momentum to change that. It did not. Instead of reassuring voters, the President failed to effectively defend his many accomplishments and expose Trump’s many lies,” he wrote in a statement, reported by The Texas Tribune reporter Matthew Choi.

 

Doggett’s statement magnifies the pressure surrounding the president and his team, who have been trying to tamp down party concerns in the wake of Biden’s disappointing debate performance against former President Donald Trump last week.

In calling on Biden to step aside, Doggett said the president could help usher in a new generation of leadership to help the party achieve its ultimate goal: defeating Trump.

“Recognizing that, unlike Trump, President Biden’s first commitment has always been to our country, not himself, I am hopeful that he will make the painful and difficult decision to withdraw,” Doggett said. “I respectfully call on him to do so.”
