Strange. I mean it has been obvious all along that the Democratic party would support the incumbent. I would be really surprised to see another candidate come forward with the charisma and funding to be a serious contender. That candidate would most certainly not be this guy.

"Oh no, how dare the party support the incumbent when there are no other prominent candidates"

Can't be much of a leader since no one has ever heard of him.

Announces that he’s changing parties to the Republicans in 3… 2… 1…

He’s voted with Biden’s policies 100% of the time. He’s more likely to run for President as a Democrat than attempt reelection as a Republican.

Dean Phillips, a three-term representative from Minnesota’s 3rd district. He is a current member of both the Committee of Foreign Affairs and the Committee for Small Business.

He has been rumored to be running against Joe Biden in 2024. He is one of the most bipartisan members of Congress. He is also one of the wealthiest.

He is one of the most bipartisan members of Congress.

So he is the Democratic version of Charlie Brown falling for Lucy holding a football?

His Wikipedia page seems to tick all the right boxes, and being related to “Dear Abby” is not a bad thing, but I don’t know anything else about the guy.

For those complaining that he’s wealthy: yeah but it does seem to take that to get elected

Another fucking DINO bought out by the Republicans. Honestly he can go fuck himself and the rest of the Democrats whom think they're becoming "too radical". Fucking die mad you old senile fucks.
