Remarks made by Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden on Wednesday, along with fundraising moves taken by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) have some political experts suggesting that Biden is on the verge of naming Harris as his running mate, according to ABC News:

“Harris, who dropped out of the White House race in December, set up a joint fundraising operation with the Democratic National Committee, an arrangement that is typically reserved for nominees trying to attract large donations from the party’s biggest boosters. Hours later, she made a surprise appearance on a virtual fundraiser, introducing Biden to donors.”

During a virtual fundraiser hosted by Biden, the former vice president lavished praise on Harris, remarking:

“I’m so lucky to have you be a part of this partnership going forward. Working together, we can make a great deal of progress. … I’m coming for you, kid.”

And Harris did nothing to tamp down speculation that she might be Biden’s pick during an appearance on “The View,” commenting:

“I know that conversation is taking place in the press and among the pundits, and I’m honored to even be considered, if that’s the case.”

Later in the afternoon, Harris also appeared as a special guest on Biden’s online fundraiser, slamming President Donald Trump as a “complete failure” and praising Biden as the right person to lead the country at a time when Americans “need to have hope … need to have faith.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced he was suspending his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders trails Biden by more than 300 delegates.

In his announcement, Sanders told his supporters:

“While we are winning the ideological battle and while we are winning the support of so many young people and working people throughout the country, I have concluded that this battle for the Democratic nomination will not be successful.”

And Biden immediately reached out to those who had supported Sanders, telling them:

“And to (Sanders’) supporters I make the same commitment: I see you, I hear you, and I understand the urgency of what it is we have to get done in this country. I hope you will join us. You are more than welcome. You’re needed.”
