Warner seeks support from Senate Democrats to urge Biden to withdraw from race, according to report.

According to a report from the Washington Post on Friday, Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, is currently working to assemble a group of fellow Democratic senators to urge President Joe Biden to not run for the presidency in 2024.

According to two anonymous sources from the Washington Post, it seems that Warner has been convinced by last week’s debate that a Biden presidential campaign is no longer viable. As a result, he intends to lead a group of Democratic senators to the White House on Monday to discuss the possibility of exiting the race with the president.

According to the senator’s spokeswoman, when inquired about his efforts, she stated, “Senator Warner, like numerous other individuals in Washington and throughout the country, acknowledges the significance of these days for the president’s campaign, and he has effectively conveyed this to the White House.”

Amidst the ongoing discussions about the president’s abilities, the latest news reveals that Biden remains confident about his chances of victory. During a rally in Wisconsin on Friday, he expressed his optimism repeatedly, emphasizing that he is capable of fulfilling the responsibilities of the job.

In a confident tone, he declared, “I will run and emerge victorious once again.” However, he did have a small slip-up when he corrected himself for referring to the current year as the 2020 election year.

Mark Warner holds significant political sway in Virginia. He has served as a U.S. Senator since 2009 and was the state’s Governor from 2002 to 2006. While Warner is not running for re-election this year, his fellow Senator from Virginia, Tim Kaine, is up for re-election.

Tim Kaine is a well-known figure in Virginia’s political landscape, and his career trajectory shares similarities with that of Mark Warner’s. He served as a U.S. Senator for over 12 years and followed in Warner’s footsteps as governor from 2006 to 2010. Kaine’s national profile rose when he was selected as Hillary Clinton’s running mate in the 2016 presidential election, but unfortunately, they were defeated by Donald Trump.

In an interview with 13News Now, Kaine remains confident in President Biden’s leadership abilities. While Biden may not excel in debates or speeches, Kaine believes he is still capable of effectively leading the country.

“The senator emphasized that ultimately, a president’s judgment is put to the test based on the people they surround themselves with,” stated the senator.

Democratic incumbent Kaine is up for re-election, facing off against Republican opponent Hung Cao. Trump threw his support behind Cao during a rally in June, following a Roanoke College poll that had shown Trump and Biden in a tight race just a month earlier.

While some have suggested that the deep purple state is up for grabs in this election, it’s worth noting that in 2016, Clinton won the commonwealth by over 5%, and in 2020, Biden secured an even more significant victory with a lead of 10.1%.
