John Hickenlooper (D-CO) refused to say if President Joe Biden should continue as the Democratic nominee in the 2024 election. “If you’re trying to get me to take a position on whether he should continue his campaign, I will collectively avoid answering the question, just because right now, it’s a process of really listening,” […]

Sen. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) refused to say if President Joe Biden should continue as the Democratic nominee in the 2024 election.

“If you’re trying to get me to take a position on whether he should continue his campaign, I will collectively avoid answering the question, just because right now, it’s a process of really listening,” Hickenlooper said Tuesday morning during a Carnegie Endowment event. “And most senators, and I think many House members, have been in their home states, trying to hear the broad array of opinions, which are of every single complexion. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a more complicated political environment in my life, so it’s probably not the right time for me to make news.”

He rallied the Congressional Black Caucus in a teleconference Monday and sent a letter to elected Democrats urging them “to end” the 11th-hour speculation about his candidacy, citing his victories in the primary campaigns and their shared desire to defeat Trump.

“You can’t bemoan the fact that, you know, these are difficult decisions, or ‘these are not the circumstances I thought I’d be dealing with,’” Hickenlooper said. “We’re going to make the decisions we can, the best decisions possible with the information we have. And I have great confidence, whatever President Biden decides, that he’ll do the right thing for the country.”
