Another House Dem calls on Biden to drop out: ‘An opportunity to look elsewhere’

Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz., is the latest lawmaker to call on the president to drop out of the presidential race following last week’s botched debate performance.

Grijalva told The New York Times that he thinks its time for his party to select a new nominee but qualified that he will still support Biden if he makes it through November.

“If he’s the candidate, I’m going to support him, but I think that this is an opportunity to look elsewhere,” Grijalva said. “What he needs to do is shoulder the responsibility for keeping that seat – and part of that responsibility is to get out of this race.”

Grijalva is the second sitting Democratic House lawmaker to call on Biden to step down. On Tuesday, Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, said the president “failed” to defend his record and reassure voters that he’s the man for the job during last week’s debate.
