Harris said earlier this month that she will make a decision on a 2020 run with her family “over the holiday.”

Biden also reportedly said  he plans to discuss a bid with family members over the holidays.

Replies to Adams’s tweet showed that social media users would be on board with a hypothetical Biden-Harris ticket.

“Something tells me this is going to be a historic photo,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Please let that be the 2020 ticket,” wrote another.

Other potential Democratic candidates, including Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas) and former Florida governor candidate Andrew Gillum (Fla.), have reportedly met with former President Obama in recent weeks.
