Kamala Harris Spars With Senate Dem

The Democratic party is once again embroiled in controversy, this time between Vice President Kamala Harris and Senator Elizabeth Warren. Reports have recently surfaced of Warren calling Harris twice to apologize for an offhand remark about the upcoming 2024 election, but Harris reportedly not returning the call.

The snub appears to stem from Warren's radio interview in January, in which she was dodgy about endorsing Harris as the VP candidate alongside President Joe Biden's intent to seek reelection.

"I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team," Warren said during an interview on Boston Public Radio in January. "I’ve known Kamala for a long time. I like Kamala. I knew her back when she was an attorney general and I was still teaching, and we worked on the housing crisis together, so we go way back. But they need — they have to be a team, and my sense is they are — I don’t mean that by suggesting I think there are any problems. I think they are."

Warren later issued a statement saying she "fully" supports a Biden-Harris 2024 ticket. But apparently, Harris' staff weren't pleased by the remark, with a source close to Harris calling it “pretty insulting.”

This is not the first time the Democratic party has had to deal with tension from Harris. In February, several Democrats from the White House and congress told The New York Times they had lost hope in Harris, and months before that, Biden himself hinted at tensions similar to this time last year. According to a CNN report, party leaders are calling for calm but it's unclear if they are going to get it.

In February 2022, it was reported that Kamala Harris refused to let Biden's Ambassador to Germany Amy Gutmann fly home on Air Force 2. The snub forced Gutmann to fly a commercial. Nobody is really sure why the VP wouldn't allow her to have a seat.

What goes around comes around.
