BUFFALO, N.Y. (WBEN) - Joe Biden has a strong ally within the democratic ranks in Governor Andrew Cuomo, who said that Biden has the best chance to beat President Trump in 2020.
"He has the experience," Cuomo said on CNN Tuesday. "He has the background. I've worked with him for years. He has the talent and the personality for the moment. I think he can unify the democratic party."
Biden, the former Vice President, will officially enter into the presidential race on Thursday.
The governor has repeatedly said he will not run for president. There's been seldom talk about Cuomo as the running mate for Biden should the former vice president become the democratic nominee.
"You don't want to be too obvious (about intent to be VP candidate)," Calabrese added. "It's a very fine line to draw. Whoever the nominee is will attempt to pick a vice president that checks a lot of traditional boxes like geography. I think in this year's democrat field, I think the main factors that will be checked will be race and gender."
