Democratic politician asks if he’s ‘ready’ to replace Biden as nominee

The governor of Maryland. Wes Moore tried to downplay the idea of ​​replacing the president Joe Biden as a Democratic candidate in the 2024 presidential election.

Moore, 45, appeared on FOX and friends and the co-host asked him Brian Kilmeade about being mentioned “as a possible replacement for President Biden if the wheels came off at the (Democratic) National Convention in August.”

“I fully support President Biden,” Moore said (h/t the New York Post.)

“When I was first inaugurated we were 43rd in unemployment, today we have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the entire country. We have been successful in reducing homicide and violent crime rates,” Moore said.

Moore added that he had worked in “partnership with the Biden administration” and was “excited” about potentially working with Biden, 81, for four more years.

“I think President Biden is not only the candidate, President Biden is the best candidate for president and that’s why I support him,” Moore said.

Moore, alongside the governor of California. Gavin Newsom and the governor of Michigan. Gretchen Whitmer have been mentioned as favorites in a scenario aimed at replacing Biden, if he does not run in the 2028 election. Biden is expected to be officially re-nominated in a virtual roll call at some point before the August 7 deadline in order to ‘be included on the Ohio ballot.

The Democratic National Convention is scheduled to be held in Chicago from August 19-22.
