Vice President Kamala Harris’ allies are privately discussing what her candidacy would look like if President Joe Biden dropped out of the race for the White House, and how they could help her, following Biden’s disastrous debate performance on Thursday, according to people familiar with the matter.

These conversations have been held over phone calls and text messages between some people who raised money for the vice president during her failed 2020 Democratic primary campaign against Biden and other contenders, these people explained.

Key issues include whether Harris would control the massive Biden-Harris campaign war chest managed by Biden’s team if the president were to drop out of the race.
