Democrat Senator Chris Murphy On Biden Staying In The Race: ‘I Believe That He Can Do It’

 Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said over the weekend that he believes that President Joe Biden still has it in him to continue running for re-election as some Democrats have pushed for Biden to step aside following his debate performance a week and a half ago.

Murphy made the remarks during a Sunday interview with Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union” while talking about the situation that Biden faces.

Murphy said that he was shocked that all the conversation has been about Biden’s debate performance and not about what Trump said as Murphy proceeded to make false claims about things that Trump said.

“Personally, I love Joe Biden,” Murphy said, adding that he wasn’t sure Biden’s ABC News interview on Friday was enough to quiet opposition to Biden within the Democratic Party. “And so I think this week is going to be absolutely critical.”

“I think the president needs to do more,” he continued. “I’m not advising this campaign, but, if I were, I would probably suggest that the president get out there and do a town hall, that he do a press conference, that he show the country that he is still the old Joe Biden, one of the best retail politicians this country has ever seen.”

“The president says he can do that. I trust that he can,” he said, later adding: “I take him at his word. I believe that he can do it.”
