California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Vice President Kamala Harris was “absolutely” the best choice to be President Joe Biden’s running mate in 2024 and rejected concerns over Biden’s age during an interview with CNN on Monday.

Newsom replied that while “voters have every right to be concerned,” he “couldn’t imagine three years ago that this president could accomplish so much in such a short period of time” in the White House.
