WASHINGTON, DC: Representative Marc Veasey (D-Texas) has urged vulnerable Democrats to distance themselves from President Joe Biden if it helps them win reelection.

Veasey stressed the importance of doing whatever is necessary to secure their seats.

Veasey's comments come amid growing concerns about Biden's performance in debate versus Donald Trump and his impact on the Democratic Party's chances in the upcoming election.

“My concerns are the concerns that everybody has,” Veasey said in a CNN interview. 

"What I said this morning and expressed to my colleagues, particularly from members on the front line, is that I think they need to do whatever it is they need to do in order to come back and be reelected," Veasey said.

He added, "And so if they need to, you know, distance themselves, then that’s what they need to do.”

Seven House Democrats have publicly called for Biden to suspend his reelection campaign after a poor debate performance against Trump last month.

These representatives include Angie Craig of Minnesota, Mike Quigley of Illinois, Seth Moulton from Massachusetts, Raul Grijalva who represents southern Arizona, Lloyd Doggett of Texas, Adam Smith, and Mikie Sherrill.

Marc Veasey is the first member of Congressional Black Caucus to express  concern about Joe Biden's reelection bid 

Veasey is the first member of the Congressional Black Caucus to show slipping support for the president among a critical demographic. The majority of the caucus has remained ardent supporters, according to The Hill. 

The group met virtually with Biden on Monday, July 8, at the invitation of Representative Steven Horsford (D-Nev), chair of the caucus.

Senior leaders of the caucus - from Horsford to former chair Representative Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) to Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif) - have repeatedly declared their support for Biden and Vice President Harris, it noted.

The support from CBC members is considered crucial if Biden hopes to win Black voter support in November.

The coalition was critical in sending him to the White House in 2020.

Users on the internet have been vocal, with many calling for Biden to drop out of the race.

"Biden is losing in the polls. He’s now losing in most swing states. Senate and congressional candidates are doing better than him. He needs to step aside. It’s time. He’s losing and we can’t have Trump," wrote one user on X.

"BIDEN DROP OUT. We need a candidate who can win!" wrote another.

"Forget November. Tens of millions of Americans saw our President INCAPABLE! Biden needs to have a press conference with his doctors and post-debate cognitive tests results or RESIGN!" posted another user.

Another comment read, "Bravo sir! #DropOutJoe #Harris2024," while another user wrote, "Lmao. Oh no he stepped off the Democrats plantation..."
