Biden Plans 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 aimed at solidifying his support base.

According to reports, he expressed gratitude 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.

According to The Post, multiple sources indicated that the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) was expected to issue a formal statement endorsing Biden.

An endorsement from the caucus would be a significant win for Biden as he faces challenges from factions within his own party seeking to force him out of his campaign for re-election.

The 81-year-old leader’s disastrous debate performance two weeks ago has sparked worries among Democrats that he might not have what it takes to defeat former President Trump in November.

Democratic Representatives Mike Quigley of Illinois, Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, Lloyd Doggett of Texas, Angie Craig of Minnesota, and Raul Grijalva of Arizona have publicly called on Biden to consider stepping aside.

Representative Frederica Wilson from Florida commended Biden for Monday’s meeting and voiced clear support for his decision to remain in the race immediately afterward.

“President Biden’s call with the Congressional Black Caucus tonight showed his unwavering dedication to our nation’s future and that he is in this fight,” Wilson said following the meeting.

“He’s committed to fighting for the soul of our nation and Black economic progress, and I stand with him for another four years because he’s consistently stood with my community,” he added.
