Alabama’s Sole Democrat Backs Biden's Continued Campaign

Alabama’s only Democrat in Congress, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, has expressed unwavering support for President Joe Biden, despite some calls from her colleagues for him to step down following a lackluster debate performance.

Sewell affirmed her steadfast backing for Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris as they seek re-election. She emphasized her belief in Biden’s integrity and dedication to the American people in a post on the social media platform X.

"I have seen it myself," Sewell stated. "Joe Biden tells the truth. He cares about us and our future as a nation. He has delivered real progress for the American people and he will fight to protect our democracy and our freedom to vote. My support for the Biden-Harris ticket is rock solid."

The president has seen a dip in polling numbers since his debate with former President Donald Trump. Analysts have noted a significant decline in the political landscape for Democrats post-debate. A recent Cygnal poll of likely general election voters showed Trump leading Biden, with 48% to Biden’s 43%.

Despite the polling challenges, Biden has confirmed he has no intentions of withdrawing from the race.

On the other hand, Republican U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville speculated that Vice President Kamala Harris might end up being the Democratic candidate running against Trump, adding an intriguing twist to the upcoming election.
