Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota has not decided yet whether he’ll challenge President Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination, but he’s encouraging others in the party to “jump in” the race.

“Democrats are telling me that they want, not a coronation, but they want a competition,” Phillips said on Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” citing polling from the New York Times that shows most Democrats would prefer someone other than Biden in the 2024 presidential race.

“If we don’t heed that call, shame on us. And the consequences, I believe, are going to be disastrous,” Phillips said. “So, my call is to those who are well positioned, well prepared, have good character and competency — they know who they are — to jump in, because Democrats and the country need competition.”
