2024 Election: V.P Kamala Harris declares ‘ready to serve’ as Democrats raise alarm on Biden’s age

The United States Vice President Kamala Harris says she is “ready to serve” as concerns over President Biden’s age and mental fitness continue to grow, notably among members of their own party.

Harris made the statement during a a recent interview last week before the Thursday release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report on Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, which described the president’s memory as having “significant limitations.”

“I am ready to serve. There’s no question about that,” Harris told The Wall Street Journal, adding that everyone who observes her work “walks away fully aware of my capacity to lead.”

Hur’s report recommended no charges against Biden over his actions pertaining to the mishandling of classified documents, partly because he would have a defense at trial as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Republicans piled on Biden following the Hur report’s release last week, but Democrats have also begun voicing — or at least admitting — greater concern surrounding Biden’s age and whether that could hurt his chances at winning re-election this year.
