Clyburn initially omits prominent Democrat from list of future leaders, then corrects himself

According to reports, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) did not consider Vice President Kamala Harris for any leadership positions within the Democratic Party after 2028.

During an interview with Politico, he identified Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Gov. Wes Moore (D-MD), Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Gov. Josh Shapiro (D-PA), and Gov. Roy Cooper (D-NC) as the leading candidates.

Clyburn acknowledged that Vice President Kamala Harris would continue to hold significance in the party when questioned about her.

Clyburn stated that the vice president automatically makes it to the list.

Clyburn has been a member of Congress since the early 1990s, where he served as the No. 3 House Democrat until last year. He also co-chaired President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign. Clyburn’s endorsement of Biden in 2020 was widely credited with helping Biden secure the primary win in South Carolina.

In September 2023, Clyburn expressed his opinion that Harris is not necessarily a guaranteed presidential candidate for the Democratic Party. However, he did acknowledge her as a valuable contributor to the party’s future.

According to a recent poll, it appears that the likelihood of Kamala Harris winning a presidential election is quite low, as indicated by the majority of voters surveyed. The poll revealed that 57% of voters believe that her presidential win is unlikely. Interestingly, even among Democrats who were surveyed, 31% expressed their doubt and skepticism regarding her chances of winning.

According to a recent survey, only 40% of respondents believe that Harris would make a successful president if she were to be elected to the Oval Office.

According to a recent poll, a significant percentage of Democrats and independents believe that Joe Biden should select a new vice president if he wins a second term. Specifically, 23% of Democrats and 34% of independents expressed this view.

As of now, Harris is actively engaged in her economic “Opportunity Tour,” which kicked off on April 29th. The tour is primarily centered around the economic progress achieved since Joe Biden’s presidency began.
