Kamala Harris is big mad at Elizabeth Warren for not immediately endorsing her VP candidacy: Report

Vice President Kamala Harris is reportedly upset with Sen. Elizabeth Warren after the Massachusetts Democrat stopped short of endorsing Harris to be President Joe Biden's 2024 running mate.

What did Warren say?

In an interview on Boston Public Radio in January, Warren deferred when asked if Harris should be Biden's 2024 running mate.

She said:

I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team. 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.

Two days after the interview, Warren clarified that she supports a Biden-Harris ticket.

"I fully support the President's and Vice President's re-election together, and never intended to imply otherwise," Warren said. "They're a terrific team with a strong record of delivering for working families."

How did Harris respond?

After the interview, Warren called Harris two separate times to explain her interview comments and to apologize. But according to CNN, Harris refused to speak with Warren.

From CNN:

Warren made her case to Harris’ chief of staff Lorraine Voles, who returned the senator’s call in place of Harris, a source familiar with the callback told CNN.

But the Warren moment is infuriating many in Harris’s circle: To them, it’s the latest in a long string of snubs to a vice president whom they say has never gotten the respect or support she deserves. Warren’s words sting even more, they say, because they came from a former rival who in 2020 hoped to be picked as Biden’s running mate instead.

The report comes as some Democrats begin to suggest that Biden must reconsider his 2024 running mate if Democrats want to remain in control of the White House. Harris is unpopular and is not seen as someone who will boost Biden's profile, especially against any Republican candidate not named Donald Trump.

Biden, however, has not yet announced his re-election campaign.
