Warren Stops Short Of Backing Harris For VP, Wants Biden To Be ‘Comfortable’

Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren made the comment as President Biden gets nearer to an official decision on whether he'll seek 2024 reelection.

  • Warren made the comment Friday on Boston Public Radio about whether Vice President Kamala Harris will again be Biden’s running mate.
  • “I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team,” Warren said. “I’ve known Kamala for a long time. I like Kamala. I knew her back when she was an attorney general and I was still teaching and we worked on the housing crisis together, so we go way back.
  • The second part of her response to the running-mate issue sounds more ambiguous: “But they need – they have to be a team. And my sense is they are. I don’t mean that by suggesting I think there are any problems. I think they are.”
  • placeholderOn the issue of whether Biden should run again, Warren said, “Yes. He should run again. And he is running again.”
