Vice President Kamala Harris is using President Joe Biden as a "meal ticket" to become president, according to one former Democratic leader.
Gloria Romera, former California Senate Majority Leader, shared the comments on "Fox & Friends First."

"Let's face it, Joe Biden is Kamala Harris' meal ticket to potentially the presidency," Romera said.
"She needs to go ahead and to keep putting out there for the public and especially potential other opponents that Joe Biden is running, because the longer that people can believe that myth, the greater the opportunity is that no other contender like [Gavin] Newsom or [Pete] Buttigieg or even Hillary Clinton might step into the fray," she added.

Romera said Harris is likely to run in 2024, with Biden not seeking a second term. If so, Harris would be running sooner than some have expected.
The change would send Democrats into upheaval, with multiple leaders seeking to fight for the nomination. The move would also change the dynamic among Republicans, where much of the 2024 election depends on whether former President Donald Trump attempts a comeback for the White House.
