Representative Karen Bass (D-CA) joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss General Lloyd Austin as Biden's pick for Defense Secretary and whether she would serve in the Biden administration or the Senate if called upon as Kamala Harris's replacement. Rep. Bass says "I am willing to serve in whatever capacity. I have a great job now. If I'm tapped or asked to do something else, I will be happy to consider it. I think it would be a tremendous loss for the entire state of California and the country to have no black women in the U.S. Senate at all.”
