Rep. Angie Craig Calls for Biden to Step Aside, Raises Concerns Among Wealthy Donors

Rep. Angie Craig (D-Minn.) participated in a Zoom call with over 100 wealthy Democratic donors on Sunday to discuss the process of replacing President Biden on the ballot. During the call, Craig expressed concerns about Biden's declining poll numbers in her competitive House district and the potential negative impact on other Democratic candidates. She also called for Biden to withdraw from the race, joining a growing chorus of Democrats who have voiced similar concerns.

One donor on the call, Charlie Couric, proposed a fundraising effort for Craig to encourage other members of Congress to break from Biden. This effort has reportedly raised over $30,000 for Craig's campaign. Craig did not request donations and was not present during the discussion of fundraising.

Several participants described the group as "significant donors" who are deeply concerned about Biden's prospects. One donor stated that they had never seen donors so worried and planned to campaign for delegates to not support Biden if he does not withdraw by the end of the week.

In a statement, Craig's campaign manager confirmed that Craig joined the call to explain her decision to ask Biden to step aside. She participated for a few minutes at the beginning, provided an explanation, and then left the call without taking questions.

The participants were also briefed by an attorney with expertise in election law and the Democratic National Committee process. The attorney explained that the nominee can be changed up to the Democratic convention in mid-August without significant ballot-access complications. The DNC plans to hold a virtual nomination event in early August due to concerns that Ohio Republicans may change the state's rules to prevent ballot access if the nomination is approved later.

The legal expert also discussed the campaign finance implications of Biden stepping aside. Vice President Harris would be able to use his campaign and its cash reserves if she becomes the nominee. If Biden steps aside and another person becomes the nominee, the Biden campaign funds could be donated to the Democratic Party or an outside super PAC to support Democratic candidates in the fall.
