President-elect Joe Biden plans to name Jaime Harrison to lead the DNC according to reports.
Harrison was a fundraising powerhouse but lost his bid to unseat South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) had advocated for Harrison to get the role.
Harrison said “I can’t betray any conversations with Whip, but I know that it’s something that he seems to think that I could do. I’d put it that way.”
“If that’s something that they are interested in me doing, I’ll definitely take a good look,” he added.
