On the 19th, Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Jamie Harrison responded to the argument that a so-called ‘Plan B’ is needed to replace President Biden, whose age issues have been pointed out both inside and outside the party, with a new, younger candidate, saying, “It’s absolutely crazy.” crazy)” he strongly criticized. Chairman Harrison wrote on social media, “The idea that we can win the November presidential election by overturning President Biden’s selection and nominating a completely new vice presidential candidate to replace Vice President Kamala Harris is crazy.” He raised it and said this.

However, after the special prosecutor’s report was made public, some in the Democratic Party even mentioned specific people and the theory of candidate replacement is raising its head again. They say that neither President Biden nor Vice President Harris should step forward, but California Governor Gavin Newsom or Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer should be nominated.

The problem is that Plan B is hindered by the lack of a suitable candidate for victory against former President Donald Trump, the likely Republican presidential candidate. Emerson University announced on the 16th that in a virtual matchup poll between former President Trump and the Democratic Party’s alternative candidates, Governor Newsom lagged behind former President Trump by 10 percentage points and Governor Whitmer by 12 percentage points. Vice President Harris fell behind former President Trump by 3 percentage points, which is within the margin of error.

President Biden first mentioned the ‘old age controversy’ at an event on the 20th. “I may not be able to run as fast as I used to,” he said, “but I’ve been around long enough to know what’s going on.” It emphasized sophistication through long political experience.
