NATIONAL, (WDNews) – Four more Democrats in Congress have called for Biden to drop out of the 2024 race to make way for a different Democratic candidate.

The House Democrats who said Biden should drop out of the race were Adam Smith of Washington, Jerry Nadler of New York, Mark Takano of California, and Joe Morelle of New York.

The five previous Democrats to express their beliefs that Biden should drop out were Mike Quigley of Illinois, Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, Raul Grijalva of Arizona, Lloyd Doggett of Texas, and Angie Craig of Minnesota.

Smith, Nadler, Takano, and Morelle hold top positions on key committees and bring the number of Democrats in Congress who have called for Biden to reconsider his bid for president to nearly a dozen.

Smith is the top Democrat on the Armed Services Committee. Similar positions are held by Nadler on the Judiciary Committee, Takano on the Veterans Affairs Committee, and Morelle on the House Administration Committee.

During an interview Friday with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden dismissed the calls for him to step aside and said only the “Lord Almighty” could get him to reconsider.

Biden has reiterated several times that he will does not plan on dropping out of the 2024 presidential race, despite other Democrats asking him to do so.
