House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said he does not believe former Vice President Joe Biden will be the Democratic nominee for president in an interview on FOX News.
MIKE EMANUEL, FOX NEWS: Let's talk more about the election and the economy with the top Republican in the House, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. He joins us live from Bakersfield, California.
Leader McCarthy -- it's great to have you.
HOUSE MINORITY LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA): Thanks for having me on -- Mike. I appreciate it.
EMANUEL: Your observations of how Vice President Biden has handled his attacks and the surge of your California senator Kamala Harris?
MCCARTHY: Well, I don't think Joe Biden is going to become the nominee. Not for this position, but for many positions going forward. He's got a long history. I think his timing is wrong. And I just do not believe he will be the nominee.
I believe there will be others who come up and there's going to be a lot of opportunity. I actually think Bernie Sanders has the best chance of becoming the nominee because where this Democrat Party has moved.
It's no longer the Democrat Party. it's become the socialist Democrat Party and Bernie Sanders has the best philosophy, because he was registered a socialist who represents the current party.
