WASHINGTON — Nearly two weeks after President Joe Biden’s debate performance shook some Democrats’ confidence in him, lawmakers in Washington were looking for the path forward Tuesday.

In Frankfort, where Democrats are far outnumbered by Republicans, party leaders said they're sticking with Biden.

“This is not the time to waver,” said Kentucky Senate Minority Floor Leader Gerald Neal (D-Louisville). “What you do is you pull your troops together and you put your best foot forward. I mean, he has a tremendous record of achievement.”

In the House, Minority Floor Leader Derrick Graham of Frankfort, Democratic Caucus Chair Cherlynn Stevenson of Lexington, and Kentucky Black Legislative Caucus Chair George Brown Jr., also of Lexington, said they fully support Biden.

This week, Colmon Elridge, chair of the Kentucky Democratic Party, posted online: “I’ve heard from Black and Brown folks across the country, especially Black women, down right livid at the privilege of some folks who are willing to abandon @JoeBiden, and what it means for the safety and security of our community and democracy itself … Throwing @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris to the side is not an option.”
