Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says that Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, and not sitting Vice-President Kamala Harris, has the inside edge to be the Democrat nominee for President if Joe Biden does not run for re-election in 2024.
Appearing on the Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program, the Newsmax host explained why his sources may be correct. "(T)hey've had him out there for a reason. He's articulate, he's smart, he's got a great resume, he was a mayor". However, Spicer was quick to mention that he personally has issues with Buttigieg in the general election.
As for who the GOP might select to oppose the former Sound Bend mayor, Spicer claims that depends on what his former boss decides to do. "Until Trump makes a decision, the field is frozen."
Spicer also opined on the central legislation of the Biden administration, the $3.5B infrastructure deal. "If Biden loses this vote, I think it's going to portend very poorly." That would force Democrats "in a box" and stymie hopes for party unity come election time.
