Kamala Harris says she and Biden haven’t talked about plans for a 2024 ticket

Vice President Kamala Harris set tongues wagging earlier this week when she said that she has “never talked about” 2024 presidential campaign plans with President Joe Biden. 

Harris made her comment during an interview with the Wall Street Journal where the Vice President said, firmly, that she has not discussed 2024 plans or ambitions with Biden:

“I’m not going to talk about our conversations, but I will tell you this without any ambiguity: We do not talk about nor have we talked about re-election because we haven’t completed our first year and we’re in the middle of a pandemic,” Harris claimed.

The Vice President was then pressed about whether she would attempt to make her own bid at the presidency in 2024, despite quickly quitting her 2020 presidential campaign due to little support:

“I’ll be very honest: I don’t think about it, nor have we talked about it,” Harris said, seeming to reiterate her previous statement without expanding.

While the nation’s second in command pointed to her desire to deal with COVID-19, it’s worth noting that her disapproval ratings seem to have fallen off a cliff due to her treatment of multiple crisis situations while in office. 

“According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, only 39 percent of likely voters have a favorable impression of Harris, with a whopping 57 percent saying they have an unfavorable view of her,” The Conservative Brief reported. 

Senior Harris adviser Symone Sanders announced her resignation, and effective the end of the year, and Ashley Etienne, Harris’ communications chief, has left her position at the White House to “pursue other opportunities,” signaling yet another set of tumultuous political and professional relationship that the Vice President was unable to maintain. 

Etienne was a former staffer to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama and continued her illustrious Capitol Hill career when she joined Harris’ team shortly after the 2020 election.

”Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” the official said. ”She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

Additionally, there have been whispers for months that there is a lack of cooperation in a White House that is reportedly the scene for a feud between Kamala Harris and Joe Biden, causing chaos at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. 

These events have once again caused rumors to fly that Biden is considering replacing his VP for his next presidential run, potentially nominating Harris to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. 

“Kamala Harris is a leader but is not being put in positions to lead,” a top Democratic donor said. “[Biden] should be putting her in positions to succeed, as opposed to putting weights on her. If you did give her the ability to step up and help her lead, it would strengthen you and strengthen the party.”
