Does first-term Democratic Missouri Congresswoman Cori Bush want to see Joe Biden run for a second term? Most would consider that a “softball” question. However, the question caught her off guard as she seemed visibly uncomfortable.

During an interview at her campaign headquarters on Monday with KSDK, Political Editor and reporter Mark Maxwell, Bush refused to say whether she wanted to see Joe Biden run for a second term.

 

Rep. Cori Bush doesn’t want to talk about a second four-year term for President Biden – at least not until after her primary election next Tuesday.

An aide interjected to try and stop the line of questioning.

“She’s got to go,” the aide said before Bush jumped in.

“I don’t want to answer that question because we have not … That’s not … Yeah, I don’t want to answer that question,” she said.

“I don’t want to answer that question,” she says, adding, “He’s the President. He has the right to run for a second term.”

Bush’s staffer said she had two minutes to get to her car for a second campaign event before the interview ended.

Bush’s reluctance to take on the President’s political future likely has more to do with her own. Rep. Bush has voted against several parts of Biden’s legislative agenda and faces a primary election challenge from state Sen. Steve Roberts, a pro-Biden Democrat who has criticized her for being too far to the left on August 2.

Does ANYONE think Biden is doing a good job?

President Biden is facing an alarming level of doubt inside his own party.

Biden’s possible re-election has some Democrats worried, with 64 percent of Democratic voters saying they would prefer a different Democratic nominee in 2024, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll. Ninety-four percent of Democrats under 30 years old said they would prefer a different nominee to Biden.

Mark Maxwell tweeted:

Widespread concerns about the economy and inflation have voters in every age range and racial group in cities, suburbs, and rural areas in BOTH political parties worried that the country is moving in the wrong direction. So it’s no surprise Democrats are distancing themselves from this administration.
