Two Minnesota Democrats have said they do not support President Biden as the Democratic presidential nominee in 2024 and are seeking “new leadership,” but have refused to explain exactly how they will fight the president’s bid for reelection.
Rep. Dean Phillips was asked at a city hall recently if he would support Biden in a re-election bid, and he responded with an outspoken “no.”
Phillips went on to state that the country “would be well served by a new generation of compelling, well-prepared, dynamic Democrats rising.”
TO BIDEN THE REP: DON’T SEEK RE-ELECTION IN 2024, AMERICA NEEDS DEMS THAT ‘RISE’
Fox News Digital asked Phillips what action, if any, he would take to prevent Biden from becoming the Democratic nominee for the 2024 presidential election.
A spokesperson for Phillips told Fox News Digital that he declined “further comment” on the matter.
Minnesota Rep. Angie Craig was asked a similar question about Biden in 2024 and agreed with Phillips that the Democratic Party needs a “new generation of leaders.”

Craig also said in her response, “I will do everything in my power as a member of Congress to ensure we have a new generation of leaders.”
Fox News Digital has also reached out to Craig, asking for further clarification on exactly how she plans to fight a 2024 Biden reelection bid.
“Many Minnesotans, including myself, are poised to see a new generation of leaders in the Democratic Party, and I will do everything in my power to help these new leaders vote up and down,” Craig said in an explanation.
“I remain immensely proud of, and continue to be, the bipartisan work we have done in Congress and with President Biden to bring down the costs of working families, protect women’s reproductive rights, and protect our communities.” work with everyone who helps make results happen in Minnesota’s second district.”
In recent weeks, several Democrat officials have been reluctant to endorse Biden for another run for office after the president has consistently had low approval ratings.
The White House has said Biden plans to seek re-election, but the president has yet to announce plans for 2024.
