Gavin Newsom headed for White House visit on Wednesday to ‘stand with’ Biden

On Thursday, June 27, 2024, California governor Gavin Newsom is pictured in the McCamish Pavilion on the Georgia Tech campus after the first presidential debate in Atlanta, Georgia.   

In Thursday's presidential debate, President Joe Biden fumbled, which might raise concerns about his age and Democratic misgivings about their chances of defeating Republican Donald Trump in November.   

Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat who might replace Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential race if Biden resigns, will “stand with the President” at the White House on Wednesday.  

“Governor Newsom will head to White House tomorrow to attend the Governors meeting and stand with the President,” a spokeswoman said late Tuesday.  

Newsom will reportedly join with other Democratic governors to support Biden after last Thursday's catastrophic debate left many Democrats wondering if he can run again.  

Newsom, Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama, Gretchen Whitmer, and JB Pritzker are among the Democratic candidates to replace Biden.  

Newsom attended Biden's first presidential debate against former President Donald Trump in Atlanta last Thursday. Politico reports that Newsom has rejected offers to replace Biden this autumn.
