Biden Allies Rally Behind Him as Concerns Mount Over Debate Performance

Prominent Democrats showed their unwavering support for President Joe Biden following his unsteady debate performance and growing anxiety over his White House race. Democratic Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, a close ally of Biden, stated that he believes Biden is capable of leading for the next four years and should continue to run on his record. However, former Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, who served with Biden in the Senate, described the debate as a “disaster from which Biden cannot recover.”

Biden’s allies acknowledged that his performance against Republican Donald Trump ranged from subpar to bad, but they urged voters to look beyond the moment and consider Biden’s long-term record. Privately, Biden’s campaign has been working to address concerns over his debate performance, particularly his raspy voice and difficulty finishing sentences. The campaign has been focused on maintaining support from donors and surrogates.
