Joe Biden has found himself at the centre of a Democratic storm after receiving a first official call from his own party to withdraw from the presidential race.

Biden, 81, had faced pressure to stand aside from running in the November 5 election after his disastrous debate against Donald Trump last week.

The debate had marked the first major clash between the two front-runners to the White House with the hope of getting voters on-side early and swing polls in their favour – but a bumbling Biden had failed to turn heads as the duo graced TV screens across the US.

And now, the President has taken a blow from within after House Representative Lloyd Doggett became the first congressional Democrat to call for Biden to step aside.

In a statement from his campaign account on social media, Doggett said he was “hopeful that he [Biden] will make the painful and difficult decision to withdraw.”

The Texas Democrat lawmaker said: “While much of his work has been transformational, he pledged to be transitional.

“He has the opportunity to encourage a new generation of leaders from whom a nominee can be chosen to unite our country through an open, democratic process.”

In a sign that rebellion could be fomenting from within, US outlet CBS reported that a “large” group of House Democrats “covering a broad swath of the Democratic caucus” is calling on Biden to withdraw from the race.
