House Dem Says ‘Hundreds’ In Congress Don’t Want Biden For Second Term

  • Rep. Dean Phillips (D-Minn.) claimed this week that “literally hundreds” of Democrats in Congress oppose President Joe Biden running for re-election.
  • Speaking with the Atlantic, Phillips said the race for the 2024 Democratic nomination needs competition because in the business world, anything with approval ratings similar to Biden’s would be facing a stiff headwind.
  • “This is not a knock on Joe Biden, just a wish for competition,” Phillips said. “In the business world, if the dominant brand in a category had favorability ratings like the current president does, you would see a number of established brands jump into that category.”
