Suozzi questions whether Biden will ‘stick it out’ until November vote: ‘The bottom line is, he’s old’

Ex-New
York
Rep.
and

current
candidate
Tom
Suozzi

raised
doubts
Monday
about
whether
elderly
fellow
Democrat

President Biden
will
last
long
enough

to
continue
running
in
November.

“The
bottom
line
is, he’s
old.
He’s
 81
years
old.

Let’s
see
what
happens
between
now
and
the
Democratic
convention,”
said
Suozzi,
who
is
running
against

Long
Island
Republican
Mazi
Pilip

in
Tuesday’s
special
election
to
replace
the
expelled
ex-Rep.
George
Santos,

to
Fox
5’s
Good
Day
New
York
.

Suozzi,
a
former
Nassau
County
executive
and
three-term
Democratic
congressman,
was
asked
about
a
poll
released
Sunday
that
found
86%
of
Americans
believe
Biden
is
too
old
to
serve
a
second
term.

“I
know
81-year-old
people
who
are
in
great
shape.
I
know
81-year-olds
that
are
not
in
great
shape.
He’s
old

no
question
about
it,”
Suozzi
told hosts
Rosanna
Scotto
and
Curt
Menefee.

The
candidate
then
gave
Biden
a
not-so-ringing
endorsement
when
asked
if
he
supports
his
re-election.

“If
he
ends
up
being
the
Democratic
nominee,
I’m
likely
to
support
him,
yes,”
Suozzi
said.

Former
Rep.
Tom
Suozzi
admitted
that
President
Biden
is
“old”
during
an
interview.

Suozzi,
asked
about
speculation
over
whether
Biden
may
not
be
the
Democratic
nominee,
acknowledged it’s
a
legitimate
issue
and
it’s
a
possibility
the
president
may
not
run
again.

“There’s
all
kind
of
debate
as
to
whether
or
not
he’s
going
to
stick
it
out
or
not.
I
don’t
have
any
inside
scoop
or
anything
like
that,”
Suozzi
said.
