In mid-December, Harris said she and Biden had not yet discussed the 2024 election, amid speculation she may not be in the running for the White House if Biden chose not to stand again.In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, when asked about the possibility of Biden, 79, running again, Harris said: I don't think about it, nor have we talked about it. History-making Harris -- the first woman and first Black and Asian American person ever sworn in as vice president -- initially seemed to be the heir apparent.
