Can Democrats Just Dump Biden And Move On? It’s Not That Simple

“Will Democrats replace Joe Biden as their presidential nominee? It’s not that simple, logistically or politically, as long he’s still alive. States have pretty strict rules on last-second ballot changes, but Democrats have always found ways to get courts to rewrite laws for them at the last second. Just look at what they did for Frank Lautenberg and Robert Torricelli in New Jersey. It would be a heavy lift but not an impossible one. The real problem for Democrats is political: Removing Biden as nominee requires them to deny and reject the election results of their voters in all 50 states after they spent four years accusing everyone else of being ‘election deniers.’ … And that brings us to the real problem for Democrats: Kamala Harris.” (06/28/24)
