Joe Biden’s former Democratic colleagues from his 36 years representing Delaware in the Senate are still bullish on his chances for the 2020 nomination but acknowledge he needs a win soon.

“It’s kind of surprising when he lowered expectations in New Hampshire. It signaled to me that he was not going to be in the top two. Joe Biden needs a comeback state,” Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, told the Washington Examiner hours before results started pouring in from New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary.
