Congressional Democrats to meet next week to discuss Biden's future

In a significant development, several top Congressional Democrats are expected to have a virtual meeting on Capitol Hill next week to discuss a path forward for President Joe Biden. This comes as Biden faces calls to drop his bid for reelection, sources told NBC News.

President Biden, however, rejected these calls during a campaign stop on Friday, asserting that he would beat former President Donald Trump again in November. In an on-camera interview with ABC News, Biden stated that he would only drop out if the "Lord Almighty" came down and told him to.

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries is expected to lead the virtual meeting on Sunday. Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner is reportedly compiling a list of senators who support calls for Biden to end his race, according to the Washington Post. Warner is allegedly concerned that Biden could do so badly before the November elections that he also hurts senators who were thought to be in relatively safe seats.

Biden, in response, said that although Warner is a "good man" and that he respects him, the pair have "a different perspective." Biden also mentioned that he has talked to members of Democratic leadership who have encouraged him to remain in the race.

Four House Democrats have urged the president to drop his bid, including Texas Representative Lloyd Doggett, Arizona Representative Raúl Grijalva, Massachusetts Representative Seth Moulton, and Illinois Representative Mike Quigley.

Quigley, in a statement to MSNBC on Friday, said, "I would say Mr. President, your legacy is set. We owe you the greatest debt of gratitude. The only thing you can do now to cement that for all time and prevent utter catastrophe is to step down and let someone else do this."

The House meeting is expected to take place a day before lawmakers return to Washington, D.C., after a two-week recess. This development raises questions about the future of Biden's presidency and the Democratic Party's strategy for the upcoming elections.
