In his press conference Wednesday, President Joe Biden committed to a run with Harris for reelection in 2024 and applauded her efforts in office. “She’s going to be my running mate,” Biden praised his VP in front of reporters during a news conference at the White House on Wednesday.

Vice President Harris stoked speculation over her reelection prospects last month upon telling reporters that she and Biden had yet to discuss a second bid. In an interview last week, Harris attempted to deflect scrutiny over her prospects before dismissing speculation about a possible replacement as mere “gossip."

“I’m sorry, we are thinking about today,” Harris told NBC’s Craig Melvin in response to a question about whether Democrats intend to run the same ticket for 2024. “Honestly, I know why you are asking the question,” she went on. “Because this is part of the punditry and the gossip around places like Washington, D.C.”

Asked about Harris’s work on voting rights, President Biden on Wednesday expressed his approval of the job his Vice President is doing despite Democrats’ elections and voting legislation facing imminent failure.

“Yes and yes,” Biden responded during his first news conference of the year when a reporter asked whether Harris would be on his ticket and whether he thought she was doing a good job on voting rights policies.

When asked to elaborate, Biden said, “There’s no need to.”

“She’s going to be my running mate, number one,” he said. “And number two, I did put her in charge. I think she’s doing a good job.”

The Vice President has been assigned to facilitate policy solutions on pivotal topics such as voting rights, immigration, and border security, yet the lack of political movement on those issues has earned Harris criticism from both sides of the political aisle.

The Vice President has also received criticism over claims that she’d created a tough, demanding, and unhealthy work environment. Defenders of the Vice President have pointed to the double standard that women of color in politics face, compared with their white male colleagues.

The Vice President’s office has also been experiencing a staffing shake-up, as prominent members of the office have departed, most notably Symone Sanders, Harris’ former senior adviser and chief spokesperson.

Former President Donald Trump also seems to be gearing up for a possible 2024 run. Biden responded to Muir by saying that the possibility of facing Trump again would “increase the prospect of running.”
