Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told reporters on Thursday that former Vice President Joe Biden would be her choice for the Democratic nomination in 2020.
Feinstein, who was recently reelected, picked Biden out of a wide field of potential candidates, including her fellow California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris.
“Joe was chairman of the Judiciary [Committee] when he came to this place. I’ve watched him as vice president, I’ve seen him operate, I’ve seen him perform,” Feinstein told reporters Thursday morning, according to Politico.
“He brings a level of experience and seniority which I think is really important.”
She added that she hasn’t spoken to Biden about the 2020 race, saying, “that’s just my view,” and adding later, “I love Kamala.”
New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo also stated his support for Biden this week, saying that “of all the names that are out there, I think Joe Biden has the best case,” in an interview on Wednesday, according to CNN.
“I think Joe Biden has the best case because he brings the most of the secret ingredient you need to win for a Democrat, which is credibility," the governor said.
