Former Senator Hank Brown: ‘I Would Be Surprised If [Biden] Survives The Primaries’

Former U.S. Sen. George Hanks Brown (R-Colo.), who goes by “Hank Brown,” said in a recent interview that former vice president and current Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden is by no means a moderate.

“Senator Biden is a pleasant, outgoing individual,” Brown said. He was a colleague of Biden’s in the early to mid-90s. But Brown added that Biden is certainly no moderate: “He was consistently one of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate. To hear him described as a moderate could only happen only in Washington D.C.”

Hanks’ comments on Biden came in an interview with National Review when discussing the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991 and comparing them to the way Democrats acted last fall during the Senate proceedings on Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Biden, who was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee during Thomas’s hearings, delayed the process after Democratic attacks on the judge’s qualifications for the high court failed to bring down the African-American nominee. The delay allowed Thomas’ opponents to organize and bring forward charges of sexual assault that allegedly occurred years earlier, in a last-ditch effort to remove Thomas from consideration.

Brown said that, after his years of observing Biden, the former Colorado senator does not think his former colleague is up to the task of commanding the nation’s highest office.
