Biden holds pad of potential VPs that says Kamala Harris ‘doesn’t hold grudges’ as he says he will reveal pick next week

- Advertisment -

JOE Biden was pictured holding a notepad saying potential VP Kamala Harris “doesn’t hold grudges” – as he vowed to reveal his pick for running mate next week.

The Democratic nominee, 77, accidentally brandished the pad to press photographers showing a series of plus-points for the California senator during a campaign event in Delaware on Tuesday.

“I’m going to have a choice the first week in August and I promise I’ll let you know when I do,” Biden told journalists after delivering an economic recovery plan speech at the William Anderson Community Center.

In March, Biden pledged to pick a woman to serve alongside him.

Last week, Biden said that the group of candidates he was still considering included four African American women, among others.

His potential VP contenders include California Senator Kamala Harris, Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth, and Obama‘s former national security adviser Susan Rice, according to AP.

One major point of contention remains Senator Harris’ June 2019 debate heated exchange with Biden over his opposition to a federal student busing program in the 1970s.

Harris pointed out that Biden’s position was soft on racism.

Nonetheless, Biden said while campaigning in Iowa last year that he would love to have Senator Harris on the ticket.

“Senator Harris has the capacity to be anything she wants to be. I mean it sincerely,” Biden said.

He continued: “She is solid. She can be president someday herself. She can be the vice president. She can go on to be a Supreme Court justice. She can be an attorney general. I mean, she has enormous capability.”

Senator Harris threw her support behind former Vice President Joe Biden in a video she shared on Twitter in May.

Her caption reads: “@JoeBiden has served our country with dignity and we need him now more than ever. I will do everything in my power to help elect him the next President of the United States.”

On Monday, Biden was spotted speaking with California Representative Karen Bass, a late addition to the group of women under consideration, while on Capitol Hill to pay respects to the late Georgia Representative John Lewis.

Ultimately, the VP pick announcement will come before the start of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 17.
