Congressional Democrats weigh in on Joe Biden’s campaign

Democratic Party members of Congress gave their opinions on Joe Biden’s status as a presidential candidate ahead of a closed meeting.

Sen. Michael Bennett (D-Colorado) gave a scathing assessment of Biden’s reelection bid in an interview with CNN Tuesday night, warning that Trump could “defeat the incumbent Democrat by a landslide and capture the Senate and the House of Representatives.”

On Wednesday morning, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appeared to question whether Biden should remain the Democratic nominee during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“It’s up to the president to decide whether he will run,” Pelosi said. “We all encourage him to make that decision. Because time is running out.”
