Likely Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has narrowed the list of potential candidates to be his vice president.
According to Fox News, “Democrats ‘with knowledge of the process’ told the AP that Biden’s search committee has whittled its search down to six serious contenders after the first round of interviews:”
The list includes two of Biden’s former opponents in the Democratic primary: Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kamala Harris of California. Susan Rice, President Obama’s national security adviser, is also on the list. Florida Rep. Val Demings and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, both of whom are black, are being looked at for the position, along with New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
Biden has already promised to have a woman as his running mate, even though some in his party say biological sex isn’t even a real thing. However, after the death of George Floyd, Biden is facing more calls to choose a woman of color.
