According to a new report from the NY Times, Senator Kamala Harris is considering endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden for President.
Ironically, Harris’ high moment in the 2020 campaign came after she blasted Joe Biden in a June 2019 debate, with her famous “that little girl was me” line, criticizing Biden for his stance on bussing.
After the debate, Harris was briefly considered a co-front runner and even topped some Prediction markets for 2020 Dem nominee.
Harris was unable to capitalize on the momentum and after getting sharpy criticized by Tulsi Gabbard in a subsequent debate, her polling numbers and donations dried up.
In December, Harris dropped out amid internal strife and layoffs in her campaign.
Biden then described Harris as a “solid” choice for vice president, the Supreme Court, or President someday.
TheHill reports Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is considering backing former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential primary, The New York Times reported Thursday.
Multiple Democratic officials familiar with the California senator’s deliberations told the Times she’s weighing the option of backing her former primary opponent.
The officials told the Times the potential endorsement would not be likely until after the Senate impeachment trial that kicked off this week.
Harris’s spokesman Chris Harris told the Times the senator “remains focused on the ongoing impeachment trial.”
“No decisions have been made about whether she will endorse, which candidate, nor when an endorsement decision will be made,” he said.
Chris Harris was not immediately available for comment when contacted by The Hill.
The Democrats close to Harris told the Times she wanted to carefully consider the potential effect of her endorsement and is mindful of her two female colleagues in the race, Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
