Raskin refuses to say whether Kamala Harris is Biden's best running mate for 2024

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) would not say that Vice President Kamala Harris is the best running mate for President Joe Biden in 2024.

Raskin hesitated to answer the question during a Thursday interview on CNN's "The Lead."

The response

"Well, obviously, she gave the right answer, that’s President Biden’s choice, and I think she’s an excellent running mate for President Biden. You know, I don’t know what more needs to be said about that," Raskin answered.

"Obviously, people are still trying to throw presidential politics into turmoil, but President Biden and Vice President Harris are running on an excellent record," he continued.

Four times

Raskin refused to answer the question directly on four separate occasions in the interview, leaving concerns about his true thoughts about the vice president.

“I don’t know whether President Biden has named his running mate. We’re going to a convention next summer. You know, it’s a year away from now, and we’re going to go through that process.”

“So I’ve not seen any public opinion polling. You know, as you might be a stronger vice presidential running mate than her or me or anybody else," he added.

Low approval rating

"The questions came as Harris continued to suffer low approval ratings. In June, an NBC News poll gave Harris the lowest approval rating of any vice president in the history of its polling," Fox News reported.

"Only 32% of registered voters said they had a positive view of Harris, compared to 49% with a negative view, including 39% with a 'very negative view,'" it added.

Harris has claimed in interviews that she is ready to lead the nation if Biden is unable to continue. Many concerns exist over the president's age and health, as he would be 86 years old at the end of a second term if reelected.

The latest non-answers from Raskin add to recent concerns expressed by other Democrats that are raising questions about confidence in the vice president remaining on the presidential ballot with Biden in 2024.
