As Biden has promised to choose a woman as his running mate, there are some names that are being taken who fit the list of both progressive as well as popular candidates.
So let us discuss who Joe Biden will choose as his Vice President candidate:
1. Amy Klobuchar
The Minnesota senator has won national recognition for her earnest efforts in 2020 campaign. According to a report in New York Post,” She could be No. 1 on Biden’s shortlist. She has standout political skills and was also the favorite of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Team Biden also hopes her presence on the ticket will help nail down a critical swing state.”
However, if she’s selected then the all-white ticket would not get the desired results from the voters of color, who are usually the biggest supporters of the Democratic Party.
2. Kamala Harris
Another popular choice, Kamala Harris is the junior Senator of the state of California who was also once in the race of presidency. During a virtual fundraiser this week, Biden ramped up speculation that Harris will be his pick, saying “I’m coming for you, kid.”
If elected, she would become both the first Asian-American and African-American vice president. She also has good debating skills.
3. Gretchen Whitmer
Biden has openly praised Whitmer and called the Michigan governor as an “outstanding governor.” According to CNN report, Whitmer’s pragmatic politics are a nice fit with Biden’s and her age — she’s 48 — would make a clear generational bridge for Biden.
4. Elizabeth Warren
At 70, the Massachusetts senator is younger than Biden himself, but not of a different generation. However, an Esquire report says that with her commanding debate performances and numerous plans, Warren ran one of the most-watched campaigns of the primary season, and, according to YouGov polling, is the only woman to crack the list of the nation’s top 10 most popular political figures.
5. Stacey Abrams
Stacey Abrams has a huge fan following on Twitter, especially after she nearly won the Georgia governorship in 2018. However, she lacks experience as the highest office she has ever held is the state House. However, if she gets selected she might win votes from people of color. Picking her up as the VP candidate could unite progressives and centrists, or one who doesn’t particularly speak to either group of voters, according to Esquire report.
6. Sara Nelson
A progressive candidate who can please Sander’s supporters, Nelson isthe International President of the Association of Flight Attendants, and she has gained fame in the U.S. as a labor leader over the last two decades. She boasts of foreign policy experience as well. “There is likely no other potential progressive VP pick who checks more boxes for both the left and center of the party,” says an IBT report.
7. Tammy Baldwin
The senator from Wisconsin may not be as popular as others in the list, but she has some things going for her. She hails from one of “Big Four” battleground states that voted for Trump in 2016, and are also key in deciding the result this year. Also the fact that she is first openly gay person ever elected to the Senate, which should create history as well as enthusiasm for the Biden ticket on the left.
Selecting the right vice president candidate is very crucial for Joe Biden in his campaign.
We’re still going to be in crisis or recovery, and you want a vice president who can manage that. This seems like a much more important decision than usual..
…says Karen Finney, a Democratic strategist who worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign to Fortune.
So who do you think will be the Vice President candidate for Joe Biden in the upcoming 2020 US elections?
