Tom Zawistowski, president of the We the People Convention, said incumbent Ohio U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) is “in a pickle” as he continues to dodge questions surrounding President Joe Biden’s ability to carry out the duties as commander in chief and whether or not Biden should be replaced on the 2024 presidential ticket.

On Monday, after weeks of dodging questions about Biden’s apparent decline, Brown told an NBC reporter, “I’m not a pundit. I’ve talked to people across Ohio. They have legitimate questions about whether the president should continue his campaign, and I’ll keep listening to people.”

Zawistowski said Brown’s comment to the reporter signals he may be looking to oust Biden as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee as a way to save his own reelection bid in the U.S. Senate.

“What’s really going on here, folks, is not that these Democrats are concerned about winning the presidency. They’re concerned about saving their own hide. Sherrod Brown will not come out and say he supports Joe Biden. Instead, he’s saying the Democrats around Ohio have questions about the president,” Zawistowski said on Wednesday’s edition of The Michael Patrick Leahy Show.
