At a glance

  • President Joe Biden made news when he said he wasn’t confident in codifying abortion rights legislation Monday, but he seemed to regret saying it, telling a reporter that he “shouldn’t have answered” his question.
  • Biden added Monday that there likely not enough votes to codify abortion rights as Republicans appear poised to take narrow control of the House of Representatives in this year’s midterms.
  • “I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify unless something happens unusual in the House,” Biden said. “I think we’re going to get very close in the House … but I don’t think we’re going to make it.”
  • One of Biden’s handlers then shouted down remaining questions as Biden left the podium.
