It’s common for Presidents and Vice Presidents to have occasional disagreements and experience some tension in their relationships.
But it hardly ever occurs during the first year in office.
And Joe Biden is nervous about this one trip Kamala Harris just added to her schedule.
Joe Biden campaigned as a “transitional candidate,” leaving many to believe that he would not run for a second term.
However, during his first and only solo press conference as President, Joe Biden announced he was planning to run for re-election again in 2024.
But based on her schedule, it appears Vice President Kamala Harris doesn’t expect Joe Biden to run in 2024.
In fact, according to a spokeswoman for Harris, she just scheduled a trip to New Hampshire to sell the administration’s nearly two trillion dollar blue state bailout bill.

Of course, Harris is claiming she’s visiting New Hampshire in part because it’s home to one of the top Senate races in 2022, where Republican Governor Chris Sununu is expected to challenge Democrat Maggie Hassan.
But even though the Democrats could rearrange the primary schedule, New Hampshire will still fall somewhere early on the calendar in 2024 and it will be a swing state in the General Election.
So the more Harris visits New Hampshire, the more she will build up her base in early swing states ahead of the 2024 election, which could pressure Joe Biden to decide to step aside and be the transitional candidate he campaigned as in 2020.
