Jill Biden Weighs In On Calls For President To Back Out Of 2024 Race

First Lady Jill Biden has expressed full support for her husband's decision to run for re-election in 2024, dismissing any suggestions that he should step aside.

“Joe has made it clear he is all in,” she stated during a speech in North Carolina. “That’s the decision he’s made. And just as he has always supported my career, I am all in too.”

Later on Monday, the First Lady will be attending campaign events in Florida and Georgia, while President Biden has no public events scheduled.

Jill Biden's endorsement comes as President Biden faces pressure from within his party to withdraw from the race. Critics argue that his poor performance in a debate with former President Trump indicates he is no longer fit for the presidency.

Despite these calls, Biden remains steadfast in his decision to continue his campaign. On Monday, he sent a letter to House Democrats urging them to drop the issue.

In his letter to Congressional Democrats, President Biden reaffirmed his commitment to the 2024 campaign.

The letter criticized Democratic lawmakers who suggested he withdraw after his debate with Trump. Biden called for unity within the party.

“This morning, I sent a letter to my fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill. In it, I shared my thoughts about this moment in our campaign. It’s time to come together, move forward as a unified party, and defeat Donald Trump,” Biden wrote.

He stated that he “declined” to step aside and emphasized the need for party unity.

“Now that you have returned from the July 4th recess, I want you to know that despite all the speculation in the press and elsewhere, I am firmly committed to staying in this race, to running this race to the end, and to beating Donald Trump,” Biden wrote. “I have had extensive conversations with the leadership of the party, elected officials, rank and file members, and most importantly, Democratic voters over these past 10 days or so. I have heard the concerns that people have – their good faith fears and worries about what is at stake in this election. I am not blind to them.”

“I can respond to all this by saying clearly and unequivocally: I wouldn’t be running again if I did not absolutely believe I was the best person to beat Donald Trump in 2024. We had a Democratic nomination process and the voters have spoken clearly and decisively,” the letter added.

Biden continued: “I received over 14 million votes, 87% of the votes cast across the entire nominating process. I have nearly 3,900 delegates, making me the presumptive nominee of our party by a wide margin. This was a process open to anyone who wanted to run. Only three people chose to challenge me. One fared so badly that he left the primaries to run as an independent. Another attacked me for being too old and was soundly defeated. The voters of the Democratic Party have voted. They have chosen me to be the nominee of the party.”

“Do we now just say this process didn’t matter? That the voters don’t have a say?” Biden asked.

Following the letter, Biden made an appearance on MSNBC on Monday morning, cautioning Democrats against attempting to push him out of the race.

“The bottom line here is that we’re not going anywhere — I am not going anywhere,” he asserted.

“Run against me. Announce for president. Challenge me at the convention,” Biden added.
