MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-anchor Willie Geist noted that DNC chair Tom Perez is expected to step away from the role in February.
Asked if the DNC chair would be a job he would be interested in, Harrison told Geist that it is “up to” Biden to select who should take the role. However, he added, “If the President-elect calls my number, then I’m getting into the game.”
“It’s something that I’m interested in,” Harrison continued. “I think I could serve a good job at because I understand the DNC, I understand state parties, and now I have the understanding of what it is to be a candidate for office.”
“If my number gets called, I will definitely step onto the field.”
