A group of Democratic governors publicly reaffirmed this Wednesday night their support for the candidacy of the President of the United States, Joe Biden, for re-election after a closed-door meeting at the White House on the occasion of the multiple requests for to abandon the presidential race due to doubts regarding his state of health and his advanced age.

“The answer is that we are all looking for a path to win. All governors agree with that. Biden too. A path to victory in November is the ‘number one’ priority and that is the president’s priority,” he declared. the governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, after leaving the White House with his New York counterpart, Kathy Hochul, and the governor of Maryland, Wes Moore.

Walz has maintained that Biden is “fit to serve”: “None of us deny that Thursday night was a bad performance. It was a blow, so to speak, but that doesn’t affect what I believe, (that es) that is up to the task,” he responded to questions from the press.

After the meeting, some of the governors took to their social networks to show their support for the American leader. “Biden is our candidate. He is here to win and I support him,” said Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. For her part, New York’s Kathy Hochul has indicated that “he is determined to win” and that “what is at stake in November could not be more important.”

Trump believes that Baltimore, the largest city in my state, is a ‘disgusting, rat- and rodent-infested mess.’ he supports Maryland, so I (support) him,” he indicated through his profile on the social network X.

Over the last few weeks there have been some episodes in which Biden has been seen disoriented or having motor problems at official events. In addition, his bad night in the electoral debate last Thursday has fueled rumors about a possible withdrawal from the presidential race.
