Both Warren and Harris are known to be on Biden’s shortlist to be his running mate.

Neither the Democratic National Committee nor the convention immediately responded to requests for comment from The Hill.

The convention has largely been relegated to digital events so participants can observe social distancing and other health guidance during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Biden was originally slated to deliver his acceptance speech from Milwaukee, but will now do so virtually from Delaware, his home state.
