Top Democrat backpedals on private call for Biden to drop out

Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-NY, walked back his call for President Biden to withdraw from the 2024 presidential race on Tuesday.

Nadler had been among the most prominent Democrats to privately break off from Biden and call for his replacement.

"At this point he is the best candidate he is the only candidate," Nadler told reporters on Tuesday.

Democrats in both the House and Senate are holding meetings regarding Biden's candidacy on Tuesday. Lawmakers exiting the meetings have been tight-lipped, though at least one has said there is "no consensus" regarding Biden.

For his part, Biden has aggressively stated that he will not resign from the race. He issued a public letter to House Democrats on Monday demanding an "end" to the party drama.
