I Would be Honored: Stacey Abrams Said She’d Be Happy to Be Biden’s Running Mate
In a reasonably surprising development, the Democratic nomination race is over in early April. While COVID-19 is dominating the news cycle, at some point the focus will be on the 2020 election. And many will be curious about who will be the Democrat’s VP choice.
Before he even entered into the race, Joe Biden was rumored to be courting a Vice Presidential candidate. And the person he most had his eyes on was reportedly former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. When asked about the possibility during an appearance on the Pod Save America podcast, Abrams said it would be an honor.
When asked about the rumors that she could be the Democratic VP candidate, Abrams said, “I would be honored to be on the campaign trail as a running mate. But that is a process that you can’t campaign for, and I’m not campaigning for. I’m just being straight-forward.”
The Vice Presidential favorite also claimed that she is mainly focused on what is best for the Democratic party. “But no matter what, my intention is to ensure that Joseph Biden becomes the next president of the United States,” she told the hosts.
Abrams also said that she had told the other candidates she preferred to wait on an endorsements. “No matter who the nominee was, we needed them to trust it wasn’t the arm of someone else’s campaign,” said the former gubernatorial candidate. “Everyone was very understanding including Vice President Biden about why my silence was important to my integrity.
