A pitch to win California? Sanders leads in the latest polls, but Biden is a close second.
Former Vice President Joe Biden said a month ago he would consider Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate.
Biden repeated his thoughts this week in his first official California interview but broadened Harris’s options.
On The Bee’s California Nation podcast, Biden told The Sacramento Bee he finds Harris “qualified to be president.”
He claimed he “would consider her for anything that she would be interested in:”
Q: What positions would you consider (California Sen. Kamala Harris) for under your presidency?
A: Anything she’d be interested in.
Q: Including vice president?
A: She’s qualified to be president, and I’d consider her for anything that she would be interested in.
Biden and Harris clashed in the debates before she dropped out in December.
Despite the fights, most supporters of Harris have endorsed Biden. He now has support from 40 supporters from California.
It is not a shock to me that he went farther than the vice president role for Harris. He basically said she could choose how to serve in his administration.
Biden has massive support from people in California, but a new poll shows that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has moved to the top.
The Public Policy Institute of California found that 27% of likely Democratic primary voters chose Sanders.
Biden landed in second at 24% and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in third at 23%.
The race for California is between those three due to a massive dropoff: 6% for former South Bend Mayor Buttigieg, 4% for Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and 3% for entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
Only 7% of the respondents said they do not know who they support.
However, while Sanders leads the poll, 46% of the likely voters believe Biden has the best chance to defeat President Donald Trump. Only 25% believe in Sanders.DONATE
