Biden Vows to Stay in the Race During Wisconsin Rally

During a Friday rally in Wisconsin, Biden defied calls to drop out of the presidential race and vowed to stay in. 

The last week has not been a good one for the President. He has heard calls to drop out not only from Democratic lawmakers, but also from the donors who are helping to fund his race. 

Biden has been defiant since his shocking debate performance last week and has been going about his business as usual. But with so many high-profile calls for him to drop out and with sagging poll numbers, the President felt the need to address the calls. 

Biden began, "Well, here’s my answer: I am running and gonna win again!"

The President continued: 

"Well, let me say as clearly as I can — I am staying in the race! I’ll beat Donald Trump! I will beat him again in 2020. And by the way, we’re gonna do it again in 2024. I learned, long ago when you get knocked down, you get back up. I’m not not letting one 90 minute debate wipe out three-and-a-half years of work."

Biden closed by asking the assembled crowd, "Let me ask you — you think I’m too old to beat Donald Trump?"
