Top Democrat left speechless from this striking betrayal

Gavin Newsom

The Democrat Party is on the brink of a civil war. There’s no going back now.

And this top Democrat was left speechless from this striking betrayal.

With the 2024 election right around the corner, Democrats should be united by their incumbent president.

Unfortunately, most Dems want almost anyone other than Joe Biden to be the party’s nominee.

In a recent AP-NORC poll, 69 percent of Democrats agreed that “Biden is too old to be effective for four more years.”

Couple that with the RealClearPolitics average approval rating of 42 percent, and you have a recipe for many Democrats to eye the presidency themselves.

One name that has been tossed around is California Governor Gavin Newsom.

For his part, Newsom has spoken on a more national scale in an effort to boost his visibility.

And he is slated to debate GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis any day now.

But some Democrats aren’t loving him chasing the limelight.

As speculation swirls over Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D-CA) probable presidential run, at least one Democrat in his own state believes he would not be the strongest candidate to win the White House.

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), who has sparked his own presidential run speculations, dismissed the notion that Newsom would be a good contender for the White House, giving uncommon criticism against a state leader.

Although Khanna would “consider” Newsom a candidate, he believes there are stronger contenders in the Midwest who may win the nomination.

“I don’t think he’d be impossible to beat. I think we’d have a lot of other contenders,” Khanna told radio host Hugh Hewitt earlier this week.

“I think you’d have people like Shapiro and others [who] would be better candidates, potentially, in the Midwest. And I think Biden is a stronger candidate in Ohio, in Michigan, in Wisconsin, and in large parts of the country.”

Newsom has dismissed any plans to run against President Joe Biden in 2024, putting an end to speculation that the California Democrat may run for president next year.

However, the governor is widely seen as a potential presidential candidate in future elections.

Khanna is also thought to be a strong candidate for the presidency, something the California Democrat has not confirmed but has not ruled out.

“After the ’24 cycle will be a time where America will start to look to the future,” Khanna told Politico in March.
