Democrat thinking of challenging Biden for nomination

September 27, 2023

Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) said he is "thinking about" challenging President Joe Biden for the presidential nomination even though he isn't well known and doesn't have a lot of connections.

"I think there are people who are more proximate, better prepared to campaign with national organizations, national name recognition, which I do not possess," Phillips said, then added, "I'm concerned that there is no alternative."

Phillips had urged other Democrats to get into the race in August, but it didn't happen.

"I would like to see a moderate governor, hopefully from the heartland, from one of the four states that Democrats will need," he said, urging Biden to "pass the torch" to other leaders.

Phillips said on The Warning podcast that he is "concerned that something could happen between now and next November that would make the Democratic Convention in Chicago an unmitigated disaster."

Biden will turn 81 in November and seems to be declining more every month he is in office. Certainly, many Democrats share Phillips' concerns, but there doesn't seem to be any good solution to the conundrum since Biden has all the power and is the incumbent.
