Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is poised to take a very high-profile role in the potential Biden administration, Biden Chief of Staff Ron Klain revealed on Thursday.
Speculation that Harris would play a larger part in a Biden administration than most vice presidents swirled in the months leading up to the election and rumors about Biden’s failing health only added fuel to the fire.
Khan confirmed the rumors on Thursday, telling MSNBC that Harris is “going to be a very influential, very important vice president.”
She is an incredibly insightful and trusted voice already by President-elect Biden. Her views are being heard as they discuss policy matters, as they discuss the range of personnel matters. She is going to be the last person in the room.
She’s going to be the last voice he hears from before he makes important decisions. It’s been impressive to see the range of experiences and perspectives she brings to this. I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone who saw her campaign, who’s seen her as a senator, seen her as attorney general of California. But she has been a very strong voice, she’s a very strong force as he starts to make these decisions.
Harris was roundly rejected by voters in the early days of the contest for the Democratic nomination and didn’t even make it to the primaries due to a lack of support from even leftist voters.
Harris’s ambitions are clear, and it’s obvious that the former prosecutor plans on leveraging her close proximity to Joe Biden to accomplish her shockingly leftist policy goals.
