New reports speculate that Joe Biden has narrowed down his possible Vice President picks to two, according to Fox News.

Those two, 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, according to Biden confidants who spoke with Axios.

Last week, Biden told reporters that he would choose his party’s vice presidential nominee by “the first week in August.”

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

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a co-chair of Biden’s running mate selection committee, said Tuesday in an interview with MSNBC 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.”

The Axios report suggested that Biden confidants “would be surprised if he picks anyone else” other than Rice or Harris.

In an interview on MSNBC, the House Democratic Caucus chair said “Karen Bass or Val Demings would be great choices.”

According to confidants cited in the report, Rep. Karen Bass of California is thought to be in third place in Biden’s pecking order. The congresswoman from Los Angeles and chair of the Congressional Black Caucus spent this past weekend playing defense – clarifying her positions after revelations about past views on Cuba and the Church of Scientology grabbed headlines.
