Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has reportedly narrowed his choices for a running mate to two candidates.

The two, according to Biden confidants who spoke with Axios, are Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Susan Rice, who served as national security adviser and ambassador to the United Nations under the Obama administration, in which Biden was vice president.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a co-chair of Biden’s running mate selection committee, told MSNBC Tuesday that they have “amazing women that have been a part of this process. We’re keeping them all, we’ve vetted them heavily, all of them have passed the vet, and now in this next week, week and a half, Mr. Biden can spend some time with them.”

With the Aug. 17 start of the Democratic National Convention nearing, Biden, told reporters last week that he would choose his running mate by “the first week in August.”

However, a source familiar with the process told Fox News Monday that “an announcement isn’t likely this week.”
