On CNN This Morning this Monday, anchor Victor Blackwell lamented that “Republicans are zeroing in on” Vice President Kamala Harris as part of their 2024 framing, noting that “a vote for President Biden is a vote for Vice President Harris” because of Biden’s age. 

Along with CNN political reporter Daniel Strauss and Jamal Simmons, former communications director for Vice President Harris, Blackwell complained that this reasoning was “a really complicated argument” and “a little bit silly.” Meanwhile, it’s been reported that the White House was trying to boost the Vice President’s profile to assuage those concerned about Biden’s age.
