Democrat governor issues a stark warning to Biden campaign that sent the president into panic mode

Joe Biden is in serious trouble. His poll numbers are falling fast and the Left is calling for his replacement.

And this Democrat governor just issued a stark warning to the Biden campaign that sent the president into panic mode.

It’s no secret that President Joe Biden had a miserable performance during last week’s debate against former President Donald Trump.

Biden fumbled through his words multiple times, had several moments where he lost his train of thought, and lied countless times about Trump and his apparent successes as commander-in-chief.

The performance was so bad that it caused panic among Leftists who now believe that Biden is in real danger of losing reelection this November.

Democrat Governor Reveals Doom and Gloom Prediction Regarding this Crucial Swing State

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has reportedly conveyed her concerns to the Biden campaign, suggesting that President Biden’s disappointing debate performance last Thursday has jeopardized his chances of securing Michigan’s electoral votes.

However, she has also dismissed any rumors about her desire to replace him on the 2024 Democratic ticket.

On Friday night, Whitmer called Biden campaign chair Jen O’Malley Dillon with an urgent message, indicating that Biden’s chances in Michigan have significantly diminished following his contentious debate with former President Donald Trump, according to a source cited by Politico.

During the call, Whitmer also addressed rumors about her intentions to challenge Biden’s position, firmly denying any such ambitions. The report suggests that the information leak originated from a possible rival 2028 campaign for president, highlighting the politically delicate situation for Whitmer.

“Anyone who claims I would say that we can’t win Michigan is full of s–t. Let’s go,” Whitmer’s campaign account on X (formerly Twitter) asserted on Monday, sharing a link to the governor’s Fight Like Hell PAC donation webpage.

An anonymous Biden adviser told Politico that Whitmer, along with other Democratic hopefuls, is not “ready” for the national stage. “They’d all love an easy sprint,” the adviser said, referring to the potential candidates who might step up if Biden’s nomination is contested this August.

The Biden campaign has declined to comment on the matter.

Whitmer, once considered a potential vice presidential pick for Biden in 2020, is part of a group of Democratic governors—including California’s Gavin Newsom and Illinois’ JB Pritzker—who are viewed as possible replacements for the current president. According to an unnamed Democratic governor, “the temperature is high” within this group, with considerable anxiety and anticipation.

This tense atmosphere has prevented members from making any statements—public or private—that could be seen as undermining Biden.

Vice President Kamala Harris defended Biden following his debate performance, calling it “a slow start” and emphasizing his accomplishments over the past three years.

Supporters of Biden have criticized former President Trump’s numerous “lies” during the debate and dismissed concerns about Biden’s mental acuity as an overreaction to “one terribly bad night.”

Nevertheless, some critics are urging campaign contributions to PACs like Whitmer’s to build “momentum” for her potential 2024 candidacy. Former Democratic Rep. Chet Atkins, in an email to potential donors after the debate, emphasized the importance of generating support for Whitmer.

“A massive outpouring of small and large dollar donations to Gretchen Whitmer’s political committee will send a strong and clear message,” Atkins wrote.

“It will also allow her to be ready on day one when the nomination opens up.”

Although Whitmer reportedly did not know about the email, she will be traveling this month to San Francisco, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket to promote her new book, “True Gretch.” These trips could provide her with opportunities to engage with potential voters if she reconsiders her stance on the 2024 race.
