Democratic memo details plan to replace Biden in “blitz primary”

“Two influential Democratic operatives are circulating a memo that lays out a plan for a ‘blitz primary’ before the party’s convention in August to replace President Biden if he can be convinced to bow out, a new report says. Georgetown University law Professor Rosa Brooks, a volunteer policy adviser on Biden’s 2020 campaign, and venture capitalist Ted Dintersmith, a deep-pocketed donor, authored the detailed memo being distributed to party contributors, executive branch officials and the president’s campaign staff, Semafor reported Monday. ‘We can limp to shameful, avoidable democracy-ending defeat. Or Democrats can make this Our Finest Hour,’ the memo says.
