New group unveils petition urging Biden to ‘pass the torch’

A new group, “Pass the Torch, Joe,” has formed to circulate a petition among Democratic voters that urges President Biden to step aside from the 2024 race.

The group is made up of Democratic activists, organizers and voters who are focused on beating former President Trump in November, according to its website.

The petition targets Democratic lawmakers and delegates ahead of the Democratic National Committee in August to call on Biden to step down. And it includes a pledge for signers to say they will unite behind a new ticket and do everything in their power to beat Trump.

The group’s organizers include Rhode Island state Sen. Tiara Mack (D), former Rhode Island state Rep. Aaron Regunberg (D) and organizers in swing states including Pennsylvania and Michigan.

“We have incredible talent in our party — including a vice president who made history once and could do it again, and governors who’ve proven their ability to win critical swing states,” the group says on its website. “In 2020 [Joe Biden] committed to being a ‘transition’ president. It is time for him to make good on that commitment, put his country first, and secure his legacy as the man who saved our democracy.”
