Meanwhile, Dems are avoiding Joe Biden, saying they have “scheduling” problems when he gets to town so they do not have to be photographed with him. With his poll numbers, he is political poison.
But now the new report is that DNC Chairperson Jaime Harrison — one of those who is meant to be leading Dems in the upcoming midterms — might have had enough, that he is “frustrated and trapped.”
Supposedly, there are lots of issues between him and the Biden White House. Biden’s Deputy Staff Chief Jen Dillon is now making important choices and his influence is lowered, “according to many people who spoke to him.” And this is while the Biden White House is angry with him for not going to meet with Dem donors or going to the DNC headquarters, but instead staying in SC. And nobody has managed to get Biden’s poll numbers up. This description of the ongoing tension was reported by “two dozen former and current DNC and White House donors and officials.” So it seems very well-sourced. Two people are even stating that he’s been so frustrated he has considered a possible escape route. He would like to run for Congress but cannot do anything that will step on DNC toes.
“There is blame to be shared among everyone,” said someone close to the dynamics who also added that the Biden White House could not create an effective political message or strategy for Harrison to use to help undo Joe Biden’s slide. “Has he proven that he will do anything to raise funds and defend the Biden Administration? No. But it is almost impossible to defend what is not happening and what is happening.”
This is more shocking dysfunction on display in a very crucial political and national relationship, especially as we go into the midterms. Not encouraging for liberals and Dems.
