Joe Biden unambiguously said on Wednesday that Vice President Kamala Harris will be his running mate in the 2024 presidential race, assuming that he decides to run again.
Whether the president is asked if he is happy with Harris’s efforts on voting rights and if he can commit to having her as his running mate, he responds affirmatively and positively.
When asked if he wanted to elaborate on his response at his second solo news conference at the White House, Biden said, “There’s no need to.”
“She’s going to be my first and foremost running buddy.” He went on to say that he had placed Harris in charge of the voting rights issue. “And number two, I did put her in charge, and I believe she’s doing a terrific job,” he added of Harris taking the lead on the issue.
When the news conference took place, it coincided with Senate Democrats’ efforts to pass voting rights legislation on Wednesday. They were making a last appeal to their colleagues to support altering the filibuster in order to pass voting rights legislation in the Senate.
As part of the celebrations for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Harris asked Congress to commemorate the civil rights leader’s legacy by passing voting rights legislation.

Harris stated last week that she doesn’t care about concerns about the presidential ticket for the 2024 race, describing them as “part of the punditry and the gossip surrounding places like Washington, D.C.” Harris is running for president in the 2024 election.
When questioned about recommendations that Biden pair up with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) for a bipartisan presidential ticket in 2024, she responded in the affirmative.

In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Harris, however, added to the conjecture over who would be the next Democratic presidential contender by claiming that she and Biden had not even considered the 2024 presidential campaign.
Biden and his advisors have said on several occasions that the president intends to run for reelection in 2024; yet, given his age of 79 and declining popularity ratings, there has been much speculation regarding his future intentions.
