Midterm election season and the next presidential election may be on the horizon, but the Biden administration is not inclined to discuss those matters publicly. During a recent appearance on Good Morning America, Vice President Kamala Harris said that she and the President are "absolutely not" talking about upcoming elections at the moment.
“You're not discussing 2024 yet?” This Week anchor George Stephanopoulos asked.
"Absolutely not," Harris answered.
Stephanopoulos attempted to follow-up on Harris' answer, but the Vice President pivoted to a discussion about her daily conversations with President.
“What President Biden and I started our day talking about, as we normally do, is bringing in members of our intelligence community to review the presidential daily brief and talk about classified information around threats to our national security and hot spots around the world," she continued.
“And then I went over to the Capitol because I’m the president of the Senate and broke a tie vote there. And we are focused on implementation of the bipartisan infrastructure deal.”
Questions about her willingness to run alongside the President in the upcoming presidential election come amid rumors that she is dissatisfied with her role on Capitol Hill. Harris shot down those rumors and said that she is "very excited" about the work she is doing.
“I am very, very excited about the work that we have accomplished, but I am also absolutely, absolutely clear-eyed that there is a lot more to do and we are going to get it done,” Harris told Stephanopoulos.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki backed up Harris' statement by saying "“the president relies on the vice president for her advice."
“The president relies on the vice president for her advice, for her counsel,” Psaki said, according to The Hill.
“She is somebody who is not only taking on issues that are challenging, she is not looking for a cushy role here. No vice president, no president is.”
