President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign claimed on Wednesday that all of the country’s Democrat governors support Biden to be the party’s nominee this fall as forces in the party are seeking to have him replaced following his disastrous debate performance last week against former President Donald Trump.

“Tonight President Biden and Vice President Harris met with Democratic governors from across the country at the White House to discuss their continued partnership in this reelection campaign,” the Biden campaign claimed in a statement following the meeting. “The president reiterated his determination to defeat the existential threat of Donald Trump at the ballot box in November and sought the advice and expertise of Democratic governors.”

The campaign said that the meeting also focused on the importance of making sure that Democrats were elected “up and down the ballot to deliver more Democratic governors and more Democratic majorities in Congress and statehouses across the country.”

“All participants reiterated their shared commitment to do everything possible to make sure President Biden and Vice President Harris beat Donald Trump in November,” the campaign claimed.

The White House hosted the meeting for the governors, which was attended in person by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, the chair of the Democrat Governors Association, along with California Governor Gavin Newsom, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Maryland Governor Wes Moore, and Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear. All the other Democrat governors attended the event virtually.


Many, but not all, of the governors released statements of support for Biden following the meeting.

During a meeting with the campaign earlier in the day, Biden denied that he was dropping out as he sought to ease staffer’s minds amid reports that he had told an ally that he was considering it.

“Let me say this as clearly as I possibly can, as simply and straightforward as I can: I am running,” Biden said. “No one is pushing me out,” he continued. “I’m not leaving. I’m in this race to the end and we’re going to win.”
