Democratic leader raises concerns about Biden's 2024 prospects

To: Sen. Gillibrand, Sen. Schumer

From: A constituent in Ossining, NY

July 11

The former chair of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez has doubts about President Biden's reelection chances in 2024 due to his age and concerns that he represents the past rather than the future of the party. Perez believes Biden's age will become an issue and that the Democratic Party needs to put forward a new generation of leadership. He argues the party can accept generational change while still respecting Biden's service, suggesting Biden could have an impactful elder statesman role after leaving office. Perez's critique reflects broader doubts among Democrats about Biden's ability to defeat a rematch against former President Donald Trump or another Republican nominee amid concerns about Biden's age and approval ratings.
