Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., "checks all the boxes" to be named as Joe Biden's running mate, and is the "least risky" choice for a risk-averse candidate, RealClearPolitics co-founder Tom Bevan told "Bill Hemmer Reports".

"If I was a betting man, I’d probably go with the favorite, Kamala Harris, just because she ... I think, checks all the boxes and is the least risky choice," Bevan told host Bill Hemmer.

"She has stature, being a senator. She’s vetted, from running her presidential campaign, and I think Biden is risk-averse, I don’t think he wants to take a big risk, and I don’t think his folks think he needs to take a big risk at this point given where he stands in the polls."

Harris has long been considered a frontrunner to join the Biden ticket, but critics suggest her record as a California prosecutor and her contentious debate exchanges with the presumptive Democratic nominee during the primary campaign can be seen as liabilities.
