Will Harris endorse Biden before Tuesday?

She should if she wants to if she wants to be considered for VP.

1. I think Biden/Harris is the best combo.

 

They should talk ASAP, and if they both think it is the best option, they should move on it ASAP.

2. Stacey Abrams is a better choice

 

Abrams could put a red state in play which Harris doesn’t. Harris has a lot of baggage with progressives from her time as a prosecutor which Abrams doesn’t. Plus after her attacks on Biden during the debates some will cast her as a hypocritical opportunist. Abrams has all of Harris’ positives with none of the negatives.

8. Isn't Stacy Abrams hanging out with Bloomberg?

 

Looks likes she has picked her candidate.

10. No, she accepted money for her project fighting Vote Suppression.

 

That's a different thing. I suppose you want her to turn that money down ?

15. Why is it necessary to be so snippy?

 

Her defense of Bloomberg caught my attention.

Abrams has not endorsed Bloomberg, but she did choose to defend his huge and
unprecedented campaign spending Monday on The View.

17. It was an actual question ! Bloomberg clearly wanted to be seen

 

to be spreading the financial love amongst Democratic projects (her project wasn't the only one to receive help from Bloomberg). Would people be happier if she had turned the money down ? And she didn't have to endorse him either.

I've seen Biden supporters suggest Bloomberg quit the race and pour money into a pro Biden superpac (as he should). If Bloomberg is willing to do that, why not ?

9. Abrams doesn't have Harris's experience.

 

Harris is a US senator and was a statewide official of the largest state before that. Abrams was minority leader of a legislative chamber in a middle-sized state.

People will be able to see Harris as capable of taking over as president on Day One, if necessary. Abrams not so much.

in electoral politics. If it did Trump never would have been elected.

12. In this case, I think experience matters a lot.

 

Joe will be 78 on Inauguration Day. He needs a running mate who is seen as a plausible president from Day One.

Yes, Trump seemingly lowered the bar to the ground, but I think a lot of people want to raise it back up a bit.

22. Simplistic thinking

 

If people cared about experience they would have elected Clinton over Trump, McCain over Obama, Gore over Bush, Bush over Clinton.

Grow up.

13. But Kamala is a first term Senator who had a low energy campaign

 

After a bright start. That's not a huge gap IMO, to the energy Stacy is bringing. Yes she didn't win the Governor's race against a cheating crook, but she has grown in stature since. Most importantly, she will compliment the rust belt influence of Biden, with an energising appeal of Abrams in the South.

3. She wasn't polling that well in California anyway

 

Although, admittedly, that's been a while. So I doubt an endorsement would be that helpful. And I think she's smart enough to know that you don't "buy" consideration for vp.

7. She really should....

 

Clinton was abrasive to Obama. However, he still made her Secretary of State. Harris, imo, would make a good VP. However, if not chosen, Biden should make her Attorney General....

26. Who says that Harris wants Biden?

 

Maybe she wants Sanders. Ever thought of that? She agrees with Sanders on a lot of issues.

Maybe she will endorse Biden. But these assumptions people keep making may be wrong.
