Fifth House Democrat calls on Biden to step aside from 2024 election

A fifth House Democrat has come forward to publicly call on President Biden to withdraw from the 2024 presidential election. 

"As an elected leader, I feel a responsibility to be honest about what I believe, even when it’s hard to hear," Rep. Angie Craig, D-Minn., posted on X Saturday morning. "President Biden is a good man & I appreciate his lifetime of service. But I believe he should step aside for the next generation of leadership. The stakes are too high." 

“This is not a decision I’ve come to lightly, but there is simply too much at stake to risk a second Donald Trump presidency. That’s why I respectfully call on President Biden to step aside as the Democratic nominee for a second term as President and allow for a new generation of leaders to step forward,” Craig elaborated in a longer statement. 

Craig joins Reps. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz., and Seth Moulton, D-Mass., who have each called on Biden to step aside after his widely-panned debate performance against former President Trump.
