Biden to meet with Democratic governors as White House works to shore up support

President Biden plans to hold a meeting with Democratic governors Wednesday, CBS News has learned, as the White House and his reelection campaign work to shore up support for him after last week’s shaky debate performance. Some will attend in person, while others will attend virtually.

The meeting comes as the White House and Biden campaign work to keep Democratic governors and other elected Democrats in the fold after his rocky debate.

The meeting is notable because up until this point, it’s mostly been Mr. Biden’s top aides and advisers who have been reaching out to elected Democrats to reassure them after his debate performance. 

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear told reporters Monday that “the debate performance was rough,” but that he will continue to support Mr. Biden “so long as he continues to be in the race.” Beshear added that Mr. Biden is the candidate, and “only he can make decisions about his candidacy.” 

On “Face the Nation” Sunday, Maryland Gov. Wes Moore was more emphatic in his support, insisting that “Joe Biden is our nominee. Joe Biden is our leader.”
