Biden Fears Harris ‘Is Not Up to' Beating Trump—Does Obama Agree?
Chip Somodevilla/Getty ImagesVice President Kamala Harris is currently the only serious candidate to be the new Democratic nominee following President Joe Biden's withdrawal from the race Sunday. A host of party bigwigs swung right in behind her, but there are still some extremely notable silences.
