Some Republicans said Joe Biden must resign as president immediately after he ended his 2024 re-election campaign.
07/21/2024 --cbsnews
Here's how Republican Senators and members of Congress are reacting to the president's decision to leave the race just weeks before the Democratic Convention.

Republican lawmakers are demanding that President Biden resign from the presidency after he announced he will not seek re-election in November.
07/21/2024 --axios
Republican Senate candidates are being encouraged to push for President Biden's resignation now that he has exited the 2024 presidential campaign, Axios has learned.Why it matters: Republicans are building a case that if Biden is unfit to run for president, he is unfit to serve as president."Being President is the hardest job in the world, and I no longer have confidence that Joe Biden can effectively execute his duties as Commander-in-Chief," NRSC Chair Steve Daines (R-Mont.) said in a new statement first provided to Axios."It is out of concern for our country's national security that I am formally calling on President Biden to resign from office."What to watch: Republicans are also turning to Vice President Harris. "It has also been striking that none of the Senate Democrats who served with Vice President Harris have called for her to replace President Biden," Daines said."This leads me to believe they think she is unqualified to serve as Commander-in-Chief," Daines concluded.Democratic Sens. Peter Welch (Vt.), Jon Tester (Mont.), Sherrod Brown (Oh.) and Joe Manchin (W.V.) have all called on Biden to step aside, but not resign. They also have not explicitly said Harris should take up the mantle.What they're saying: JD Vance also doubled down on Sunday, tweeting, "Not running for reelection would be a clear admission that President Trump was right all along about Biden not being mentally fit enough to serve as Commander-in-Chief. There is no middle ground."

A student at Harvard University was getting ready to address the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee Wednesday.Shabbos Kestenbaum has been vocal about Harvard’s handling of the fallout on campus after Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack and Israel’s subsequent war in Gaza.Kestenbaum, who identifies himself as a lifelong Democrat, says former President Donald Trump’s campaign asked him to speak at the convention about two weeks ago.“Nervous doesn’t begin to cut it,” he said Wednesday. “I think the largest crowd I’ve ever spoken to was maybe 1,000 people. This will be, I think, 10,000 in the room alone, not to mention the millions of people watching on TV, not to mention the former president of the United Stats in the room, as well.”Kestenbaum joined a lawsuit filed against Harvard alleging the school didn’t do enough to protect students. He said he is grateful for the opportunity to speak at the RNC.“When your freedoms, when your religion, and when your values are under assault, you must — must — stand up and fight back,” he told NBC10 Boston.The student says his speech is not about politics, but so much more. He said if invited, he would also speak at the Democratic National Convention.He says it feels surreal.“I’m just a college kid,” Kestenbaum said. “I’m a scrappy Jew from the Bronx, you know, what am I doing here?”More on the Republican National Convention2024 RNC MilwaukeeJul 17JD Vance delivers ‘America First' message at RNC and accepts party's VP nomination2024 RNC MilwaukeeJul 17Fact check: A look at ominous claims around illegal immigration made at the Republican convention2024 RNC MilwaukeeJul 16Haley, DeSantis backed Trump for president at RNC while Biden campaigned in Nevada
