Joe Biden has no “hard feelings” for Kamala Harris.
In fact, if the former vice president wins the Democratic presidential nomination, the California Senator may just be his running mate on the ticket, USA Today reports.
On Wednesday (Dec. 4), a day after Harris announced her exit from the race, Biden told reporters “of course” he would consider her as his vice president, USA Today reports.
“Senator Harris has the capacity to be anything she wants to be. I mean it sincerely,” Biden said to reporters when asked, continuing. “She is solid. She can be president someday herself. She can be the vice president. She can go on to be a Supreme Court justice. She can be an attorney general. I mean, she has enormous capability.”
Biden also commented on the heated June debate stage when the Senator criticized his past opposition to school busing and comments on working with segregationist senators.
“I’m not good at keeping hard feelings,” he told reporters Wednesday (Dec. 4).
Despite their momentary strife, Biden considered Harris “a real competitor,” as he commented after her campaign ended on Tuesday (Dec. 3), USA Today reports.
After a strong run, Harris sent a letter to her supporters on Tuesday (Dec. 3) announcing that a lack of funding had caused her to end her campaign.
“It is with deep regret — but also with deep gratitude — that I am suspending my campaign today,” she wrote. “But I want to be clear with you: I am still very much in this fight.”
