Fox News is reporting tonight that Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram is starting to hear whispers about a confirmation process to replace Kamala Harris as VP.
He’s the report:
WOAH: There's talk on Capitol Hill about the mechanics of a confirmation hearing to fill a VP vacancy amid Kamala's nose-diving approval numbers and reports of a strained relationship between Biden and Harris pic.twitter.com/9W0AUakmiw

Pergram told Jesse Watters on Fox News Primetime:
“There’s a lot of conjecture right now about the future of VP Harris and her lagging poll numbers… As you know I appreciate Congressional process and mechanics. So I got a message recently from someone who knows Capitol Hill very well and they suggested that I should familiarize myself with the process to confirm a vacancy for the Vice President in the Senate and in the House.”
Pergram went on to say that this isn’t to say that something is afoot. But why would someone mention this to him if there wasn’t talk about something happening?
I know Kamala’s poll numbers are bad and she’s out of favor with Biden’s WH, but for someone to force her out before the 2022 elections would no doubt demonstrate just how desperate Democrats are right now. And they should be because Biden is an absolutely disaster, but ditching Kamala won’t solve that problem.
