ICYMI: Lincoln Project Leadership: “Biden’s reelection represents the continuation of the American experiment.”
October 16, 2023 – Reed Galen and Rick Wilson, co-founders of the Lincoln Project and Senior Advisors, Stuart Stevens and Joe Trippi authored an opinion piece in The Hill over the weekend in which they expressed strong support for President Biden’s reelection, praising his undeniable record of service and commitment to democracy amongst the historical weight of this moment in American politics.
Below are excerpts from the piece:
“Our support for the president’s reelection isn’t based on party registration or a particular political agenda. Instead, we see Biden as an historic figure, who has restored honor and dignity to the White House, and who is serving as a bridge from one American epoch to another. From the old world to the new, the president understands his role and has filled it beyond expectations.”
“Joe Biden is the embodiment of what so many Americans claim they want in an American president. He has put service before self, has borne unimaginable tragedies, picked himself up and pushed forward. When his moments have called, Biden has met them, head on, with dignity, grace and determination.
“President Joe Biden will be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States next year. He has done all we could have asked of him, and more. Being part of the pro-democracy coalition does not mean we agree on everything. It means we agree on one thing: that self-determination, and a government of the people, by the people and for the people must not be allowed to perish from the Earth. We must now agree that Biden’s reelection represents the continuation of the American experiment. We’re ready to get to work.”
