Time to say goodbye?
Donna Brazile, former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair, has claimed that if President Biden runs for reelection in 2024, then Vice President Kamala Harris would not be replaced.
Many are worried about Harris’ presence on the 2024 ticket having an effect on the President’s 2024 hopes. During an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie suggested that Harris’ future might be up in the air if President Joe Biden places another bid to the White House.
In response, Brazile said that the poll numbers may not necessarily be a good reflection of the vice President’s popularity. She further added that Kamala Harris would not be replaced on the 2024 ticket and that if Joe Biden decided not to seek reelection then she would most likely be “the next nominee of the Democratic Party.”
According to the Real Clear Politics average, around 52 percent of Americans did not view Harris positively. Despite this Brazile is confident that Harris would continue “to serve as vice president” during the next cycle.
A recent New York Times article also criticized Harris’ lack of position while in office and alleged that a number of Democrats who had previously been her allies are now looking for a way to move away from the Vice President ahead of the next election.
Democratic fundraiser John Morgan also told the Times that they could not recall anything that Harris had done that stood out apart from “stay out of the way and stand beside him at certain ceremonies.”
