While on his gaffe tour through Iowa, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was asked by a reporter if he would choose Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) speaks at a campaign stop on May 15, 2019 in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Biden, 77, said there are a lot of "good people" trying to win the Democratic presidential nomination, the Washington Examiner reported.

"I'm not a billionaire", said Harris, a former attorney general of California and former San Francisco district attorney. Look, I started working with Kamala Harris during the housing crisis when she was attorney general of California and I was setting up the consumer agency.

"She could be president someday herself", Biden continued. "I mean she has enormous capability".

Harris and Biden have a complicated history. Harris was close friends with Biden's son Beau, before he died of brain cancer in 2015.

CBS Sports ranked Wheeler as the seventh-best available free agent on the market this offseason. Bumgarner, 30, pitched to a 9-9 record with a 3.90 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 34 starts last season.

Harris' exit was as unexpected, as her quick fall from being an early top-tier candidate to a teetering candidate, exiting with just 3% polling support, behind Michael Bloomberg who is up to 5 % after just a week in the race. While the viral moment helped Harris in the immediate post-debate polls, she later dropped significantly.

Biden said he spoke to the senator following her decision to end the campaign.

"I was prepared for them to come after me, but I wasn't prepared for the person coming at me the way she came at me", he told CNN's Chris Cuomo.

Senator Kamala Harris, a fierce critic of Donald Trump, has told the U.S. president that she will see him at his impeachment trial after he mocked her for abruptly withdrawing from the 2020 Presidential race.

"My reaction is she's of first rate intellect, a first rate candidate and a real competitor", he said. "She is - and she is solid".
