Sen. Kamala Harris' (D-Calif.) said on Wednesday that former Vice President Joe Biden would make a great pick for 2020, but, she clarified, as her running mate, Politico reports.
"I think that Joe Biden would be a great running mate. As vice president, he’s proven that he knows how to do the job."— Sen. Kamala Harris to reporters in New Hampshire
Harris has kept her options open, adding that: "There are certainly a lot of other candidates that would make, for me, would make a very viable and interesting vice president."
The big picture: Members of the Congressional Black Caucus said Biden as the presidential nominee and Harris as his VP would be the "dream ticket," per Politico. A Trump adviser previously told Axios that if Harris draws strong support from African-American voters, that could present a challenge in 2020. Several male, Democratic candidates have been asked whether they would commit to a female running mate.
