“I think the country would be well-served by a new generation of compelling, well-prepared, dynamic Democrats to step up,” Phillips said during the interview.
“I think he’s a man of decency, of good principle, of compassion, of empathy and of strength,” Phillips added.
Minnesota’s 3rd District Congressman Dean Phillips just told @ChadHartmanShow on @wccoradio he does NOT want President Joe Biden to run for reelection in ’24, and says “it is time for a new generation”. Adds that it is crucial Donald Trump “and his cronies” are not elected.

The statement comes as a growing number of Democrats refuse to endorse Biden for 2024. In addition to House members, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) also said on Sunday that he would not answer questions about Biden running in 2024.
The shift reveals growing concerns about Biden’s status for 2024, especially among Democrats running for reelection in the 2022 midterms.
