Senior House Dem calls on Biden to step aside, slams campaign's 'be quiet and fall in line' strategy

A sixth House Democrat is now asking President Biden to duck out of the 2024 White House race and accusing his campaign of dismissing concerns from fellow members of his party.

Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., the top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, told CNN host Jake Tapper point-blank on Monday afternoon that he believes the 81-year-old president is not the best candidate to beat former President Trump in November.

"I think he should step aside. I think it's become clear that he's not the best person to carry the Democratic message," Smith said.

He maintained that Biden did "a great job" so far, citing the U.S.'s economic rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic.
