Jeffries plans to relay Dem concerns to Biden

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries has told lawmakers in private meetings that he’ll relay concerns regarding the president’s electability to Joe Biden, according to two people familiar with the situation, as more Democrats call for him to step aside.

Jeffries has convened listening sessions in recent days with rattled members of the caucus, including members of the centrist New Democrat Coalition, to discuss how having Biden at the top of the ticket could impact incumbents in battleground districts. Meanwhile, Speaker emerita Nancy Pelosi, whom rank-and-file Democrats have sought out for advice, has been having her own private conversations with Democrats to listen to their concerns, according to two people familiar with those discussions.

CNN first reported Jeffries’ plans.
