Maura Healey Thinks Biden 2024 Is Toast, Report Says

July 5, 2024

Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey has privately expressed concern about President Joe Biden’s ability to win the 2024 presidential election.

On a conference call with other Democratic governors earlier this week, Healey reportedly thinks Biden’s campaign will not recover from his tumultuous CNN debate performance last week.

Here is what the report from The New York Times published Thursday, July 4 said, in part:


Speaking for themselves, some governors have been more vocal. Gov. Maura Healey of Massachusetts, though she did not speak during the Wednesday meeting with Mr. Biden, said during a Monday call with fellow governors about the situation that she had told Jeff Zients, the White House chief of staff, that the president’s political position was “irretrievable” after his disastrous debate performance, according to two people who were on that call.


Irretrievable means “impossible to regain or recover,” according to Merriam-Webster.

Healey’s comment occurred Monday, July 1, according to the New York Times story, which was four days after Biden’s halting, stumbling performance in a debate with former President Donald Trump on Thursday, June 27.

The governor’s office could not be immediately reached for comment on Friday, July 5.
