Kamala Harris Emerges AS Favorite For Biden’s VP

It is being reported by Politico that many of the top players in Democratic circles see Senator Kamala Harris as the top choice to be presumptive Democratic Nominee Joe Biden’s Vice President. This is interesting considering that Elizabeth Warren still tops the list for many.

“Biden and Harris have spoken privately several times, and a growing contingent of operatives inside and around the presumptive Democratic nominee’s campaign have been making it clear they want her as his pick,” Politico reports.  “Influential donors are joining in the push, seeing the daughter of immigrants from India and Jamaica as the most logical choice to balance a ticket led by a white man in his late 70s. Some of the party’s biggest benefactors, including those who went months rarely hearing from Harris, said they have seen an uptick in contacts from her and people on her behalf,” they added.

There are still others being considered for the role, including, Senators Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada. Stacy Abrams of Georgia is also in the mix along with Rep. Val Demings of Florida and  Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan.

Joe Biden announced earlier in the year that his VP pick would be a woman. Many have pushed further for it to be a woman of color. This no doubt pushes Senator Kamala Harris and Stacy Abrams to the front of the line. There is still the fact that Joe Biden is not officially the Democratic nominee. That may soon change and we will find out who will run with Joe.
