(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Democrat US Senator Elizabeth Warren has refused to endorse Vice President Kamala Harris as President Joe Biden’s running mate in his likely reelection campaign.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, one of the leading socialists in the Democratic Party, commented Biden should proceed with his second-term candidacy in a way that makes him “comfortable.”
The Democrat president hasn’t officially announced his reelection campaign yet but is expected to do so in the coming weeks.
Warren was giving an interview on Boston Public Radio when she was asked whether Biden should have Harris as his running mate once again.
“I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team,” the Democrat US Senator said before explaining her relationship with Kamala Harris.
“I’ve known Kamala for a long time. I like Kamala. I knew her back when she was an attorney general and I was still teaching and we worked on the housing crisis together, so we go way back. But they need — they have to be a team, and my sense is they are — I don’t mean that by suggesting I think there are any problems. I think they are,” the Massachusetts progressivist elaborated.
While she stopped short of endorsing the vice president for reelection, Warren threw her weight behind Biden’s candidacy for a second term, which he is expected to announce in February.
“Yes. He should run again. And he is running again,” Warren said, as cited by Fox News.
In another interview, the Democrat US Senator predicted that Joe Biden probably wouldn’t face a primary challenge for the party’s presidential nomination.
“The circumstances are that Joe Biden is running. I’m very happy about that. I am not running for president, I’m running for Senate,” Warren stated.
She praised the president for getting “a tremendous amount done” and elaborating on his achievements.
“I love to say this… the CHIPS and SCIENCE bill! When I ran for Senate a decade ago, I said one of the things I think we need to do as a nation we need to double our investment in science. That is exactly what we did last summer. And Joe Biden signed that into law. He showed he’s willing to wade into the fights. He waded in the fight on student loan debt for 43 million Americans,” Warren stated.
The progressivist senator singled out the so-called Inflation Reduction Act adopted last fall, lauding that it raised corporate taxes for the first time in 30 years.
“We also got the biggest climate package we’ve ever gotten. It goes into effect right now, the $35 cap for seniors on insulin. Think about these things. Seniors are not going to have to spend more than $2,000 a year on pharmacy prescription drugs,” Warren said in her praise of Biden.
