Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) reportedly responded to a New York Times piece regarding Vice President Kamala Harris and if Democratic Party officials believe she is capable of managing the country.
President Joe Biden, who is 80 years old, has said unequivocally that he will seek for reelection. If he were to run for president again and win, he would be 86 by the end of his second term. This fact, according to the Times report, has allegedly caused consternation among many prominent Democrats, who doubt Vice-President Kamala Harris would make a competent replacement for Biden.
Cruz appeared to pick op on the anxieties expressed by Democrats in the article while making an appearance on the Fox News program Jesse Watters Primetime.
Cruz went on to say that he didn’t believe that Biden would end up running for reelection in 2024 and also went on to speculate that the new large number of negative stories that have recently appeared about Kamala Harris were being driven by ambitious Democrats potentially seeking to replace her.
“Listen, when Democrats want to kill each other, they have the New York Times on speed dial number one. And what this article is, is every ambitious Democrat, they’re looking at Joe Biden – and I’m here to tell you Joe Biden’s not gonna run in ’24. I do not believe he will be the Democrat nominee in ’24.” Cruz said.
“I think all the ambitious Democrats are measuring the drapes. And I think you’re looking at people like Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren and Gavin Newsom, who all see Kamala Harris in their way…And so these knives are coming from every direction.” he continued.
