Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden has finally announced who is going to be participating in his vice presidential selection committee to help him choose a running mate for the rest of the 2020 presidential campaign.
Former Sen. Chris Dodd, Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and former White House Counsel Cynthia Hogan will be part of the committee and will work with Biden to help choose a running mate that will compliment his platform for the rest of the 2020 election.
Here’s more from The Washington Times:
“Selecting a vice presidential candidate is one of the most important decisions in a presidential campaign, and no one knows this more than Joe Biden,” said Jen O’Malley Dillon, campaign manager of Biden for President. “These four co-chairs reflect the strength and diversity of our party, and will provide tremendous insight and expertise to what will be a rigorous selection and vetting process.”
There have been quite a few rumors going around about who might be on the short list of possible candidates for Biden’s presidential bid. Many folks have assumed his pick is going to be a woman with Stacey Abrams and Amy Klobuchar being possibilities for his VP pick.
This, of course, would be nothing more than a strategy to help Biden win over some of the more reluctant supporters of his campaign, particularly supporters of Bernie Sanders who feel the Vermont senator got the shaft by the Democratic Party.
On the other hand, whoever Biden chooses is going to have to be extremely tough because President Trump is not going to hold back any punches. He’s going to let loose in devastating fashion against Biden, and with the current sexual assault allegations against the former vice president, things are going to get bloody.
