A planned meeting of Senate Democrats, which was to be led by Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and discuss President Joe Biden’s support ahead of the presidential election, has been called off, according to several reports.

Warner had reportedly called the meeting in the wake of Biden’s performance in the first presidential debate late last month, and as several House Democrats have called on him to withdraw from the ticket. However, once plans for the “private” meeting became public, it was scrapped.

In addition to Democrats in the lower chamber asking Biden to step aside as their presidential candidate, others have predicted he would lose to former President Donald Trump. Staying largely silent on the matter has been Senate Democrats, and Warner’s reported meeting was expected to be a defining moment for Biden and the party’s political futures.


However, since details of the meeting were leaked, it made the opportunity for it to be private “impossible,” a source familiar told Axios.

Senate Democrats are still expected to have their regularly scheduled luncheon on Tuesday, and House Democrats are having their weekly closed-door meeting the same day. The Democratic Party has about six weeks until the Democratic National Convention, where its presidential nominee will be selected.

The party has to deal with several deadlines as well, should Biden be replaced, in order to ensure the candidate makes it on every state’s ballot.
