    Senators and Congressional members arrived back in DC this week after the Fourth of July holiday and behind closed doors Tuesday House Democrats pleaded their case to toss or keep Joe Biden on the ticket. 

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries opened the House meeting and advised members to unify. Member vented and in the end, found themselves unable to resolve the fracturing voices of their party. 

    Lawmakers who have already called for Biden to step down made their case and provoked a larger block of the caucus that believes Democrats need to stay the course with Joe Biden.

    “It’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Biden-supporter Juan Vargas (D-CA.), who called the president’s critics a “circular firing squad.”

    One member called the temperature of the meeting as “sad and frustrated.”

    After the disastrous Biden performance during the CNN debate on June 27,  members have become worried about their own political survivability and their aspirations of flipping the House and keeping Trump out of the White House. 

    “Democrats are waking up to the fact that we’re going to have a very tough election, and it doesn’t matter who our nominee is. This is going to be a dogfight in November,” said Lou Correa (D-CA.), who is strongly backing Biden. “The candidate that the voters chose is who we have as a candidate.”

    Asked about whether Democrats had reached a consensus on a path forward, Brittany Pettersen (D-CO.) said: “I think that’s hard to tell. You’re gonna get people on both sides that are getting up to speak. So I don’t think that there was a general consensus.”

    Some of the Democrats who have called for Biden to step down include: Seth Moulton (D-MA.), Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) and Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), who later told reporters he is concerned about Biden “dragging the ticket down.” 

    Senate Democrats had their own meeting Tuesday afternoon, and they had no more luck charting a unified path to victory. . 

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) ended the meeting with his loyalty to Biden. 

    “I’m with Joe,” said Schumer. 

    Several other senators have serious concerns about Biden, but no Democratic senator has called on Biden to step aside publicly.

    Biden on the other hand, met virtually Monday night with the Congressional Black Caucus. 

    “My personal takeaway is that Joe Biden has tremendous support from the Democratic caucus, and we’re going to move forward,” said Hank Johnson (D-GA.) who is with the caucus’ leadership.
