On Wednesday, Democratic governors from across the US met with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris at the White House to discuss the president’s disastrous showing at the debate last week.

Among those who attended in person were Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, who leads the Democratic Governors Association, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Maryland Gov. Wes Moore, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul. Some, like Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, attended the meeting virtually, according to CBSNews.



Following the meeting, to shore up support following the lack of confidence in Biden’s reelection bid, Hochul, Moore and Walz spoke to reporters for approximately five minutes. None of the governors who spoke are up for reelection this year.

Walz claimed he and his colleagues had a “great conversation” with Biden, claiming that the governors are not concerned about Biden’s cognitive abilities but rather of “the threat of a Trump presidency.” Walz claimed that last Thursday’s debate was merely a “bad performance” from Biden.



Moore said, “The president has always had our backs. We’re going to have his back as well, because the results that we’ve been able to see under this administration have been undeniable in all of our individual states.”



He called the presidential race a "binary choice” between “someone who has continually delivered for us and the people of our states, and frankly, someone whose vision for the future of this country is downright dangerous."



Hochul claimed Biden was “in it to win it,” adding, “All of us pledged our support to him because the stakes could not be higher.”



Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who is also not up for reelection, posted on X after the meeting, “Joe Biden is our nominee. He is in it to win it and I support him.”



California Gov Gavin Newsom, whose name has been floated as a possible replacement on the ticket for Biden, but is also not up for reelection, posted on X, “I heard three words from the President tonight—he’s all in. And so am I. Joe Biden has had our back and now it’s time to have his.”
