Dianne Feinstein Hopes For A Joe Biden Presidency In 2020

Senator Dianne Feinstein revealed Thursday that Joe Biden is her preferred presidential candidate, Politico reported.

The California Democrat told reporters that Biden, the former vice president and Delaware senator would be the best match for President Trump. It was a quick decision, as several Senate Democrats are considering a 2020 run — including Feinstein’s colleague 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 Politico. “He brings a level of experience and seniority which I think is really important.”

However, the two politicians haven’t talked about Biden’s potential candidacy, saying, “That’s just my view.”
