Kamala Harris Says Biden Would Be a ‘Great Running Mate’

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) floated fellow 2020 candidate — and former vice president — Joe Biden as a potential running mate during a campaign stop on Wednesday.

“I think that, sure, if people want to speculate about running mates, I encourage that. ‘Cause I think that Joe Biden would be a great running mate,” Harris said at a campaign stop in New Hampshire. “As vice president he’s proven that he knows how to do the job.”

That was in response to a question from Daily Mail reporter Emily Goodin about pundits pitching Harris as the perfect VP pick for Biden:

A Reuters poll out Wednesday showed Biden expanding his lead on other Democrats. The poll found 29% of Americans support Biden for the primaries — up from 24% in late April. Harris received 6% in the same poll.
