New York Democrats back Biden as questions about his candidacy linger

A significant number of New York’s congressional members—as well as state officials–have announced that they are sticking with Joe Biden, despite his shaky performance at last month’s presidential debate against Donald Trump. 

U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Grace Meng, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and Gov. Kathy Hochul are among the Democrats in the Empire State who have come out in full support of Biden’s campaign.
