Biden seeks to keep Congressional Black Caucus support with virtual meeting

President Biden met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) on Monday night in a virtual call meant to strengthen his support base. He reportedly thanked them for their reliable support and promised a mutual sense of loyalty. 

"You’ve had my back, and I’ll continue to have yours," Biden told the CBC members on the call, two sources told the Washington Post.

The Post reported that multiple sources claimed a formal statement of support for Biden was expected to be released by the CBC.

An endorsement from the caucus would be a crucial victory in Biden's battle against factions of his own party seeking to force him out of his campaign for re-election.

Democratic Reps. Mike Quigley, D-Ill.; Seth Moulton, D-Mass.; Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas; Angie Craig, D-Minn.; and Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., have all come out publicly urging Biden to step aside.
