Will Democrats Dump Biden and Draft Cuomo?

Author 512932
Message Al Hirschfield

It’s not out of the question if Biden keeps looking out of touch and irrelevant.

Democrats are publicly talking about “contingency options” for their July convention in Milwaukee in case the coronavirus persists in being a public-health threat. But privately, some are also talking about needing a Plan B if Joe Biden, their nominee apparent, continues to flounder.

Some Democrats are openly talking up New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose profile has soared during the crisis, as a Biden stand-in. Yesterday, a Draft Cuomo 2020 account on Twitter announced that “Times have changed & we need Gov. Cuomo to be the nominee. Our next POTUS must be one w/an ability to lead thru this crisis.”

I think this is going to be more and more likely. They'll keep Biden running until he gets enough delegates then he'll withdraw because of his health. Then the DNC will install someone. Maybe Cuomo, Maybe Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, or Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown.

Bernie should be the nominee, as he actually campaigned, etc.

Cuomo has the intellectual wherewithal to be president, which would probably frighten the poop out of the DNC AND the GOP and which is why he will never, ever be selected to run.
