At a virtual town hall on Wednesday, just hours after Bernie Sanders dropped out of the presidential race, Joe Biden assumed the mantle of his party’s presumptive nominee — and, at a separate virtual fundraiser, the former vice president suggested that one-time rival Kamala Harris may play a big role in his campaign going forward.
Streaming live to some 1,621 viewers on YouTube, Biden praised Sanders during the town hall for being a persistent and “passionate voice for progress,” and also lauded the Vermont senator for “energizing millions of supporters.”
The article goes on to state the following:
At the virtual fundraiser earlier in the day, Harris appeared on video from Washington, blasting President Trump as a “complete failure” and, in an effusive introduction, asserting that Biden would be the right president at a time when people “need to have hope … need to have faith.”
The report notes that Biden responded by praising Harris for running a “helluva race” and reminding attendees that “we go back a long way.”
Fueling speculation about the possibility of Harris as a running mate, Biden also reportedly said to Harris, “I’m so lucky to have you be a part of this partnership going forward. Working together, we can make a great deal of progress. … I’m coming for you, kid.”
The report states that Biden also mentioned he had reached out to former president Barack Obama for advice about choosing a running mate.
Biden said he would be “looking for someone who will be a partner in this progress,” and added, “I’m going to need a woman vice president who has the capacity, has strengths where I have weaknesses.”
“Together…we can make a great deal of difference & the biggest thing we can do is make Donald Trump a one-term president. So I’m coming for you, kid,” Biden said, adding he’s lucky to have a ‘partnership’ w/ her
