Warren Reportedly Looking At Failed Governor Candidate Andrew Gillum As VP Running Mate

Linkedin Share

Andrew Gillum might just fail his way to the top if Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) somehow manages to snag the Democrat nomination for president. Never mind that Gillum has been embroiled in scandals ever since losing the Florida gubernatorial race to Ron DeSantis in 2018. That doesn’t matter to Warren or any lefties, for that matter.

What matters is that a woman becomes president and a minority serves under her. That’s the goal. Who cares about good policy when you can push a social justice warrior agenda? Who cares about doing the right thing by America and Americans, right?

Shame. Here’s what’s up…

From the liberal Daily Beast:

Presidential candidates often keep a running list of influential individuals who they will informally call for ideas, advice, and, perhaps, to scope them out as a potential running mate.

And for several candidates, including at least one in the top tier, former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is on speed dial. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), in particular, has been in contact with Gillum over the past several months, multiple knowledgeable sources told The Daily Beast.

Reactions:

I swear they’re trying to re-elect Trump.

Tfw you snub the Governor of Georgia for the Governor of Florida

Picking someone as ethically challenged as @AndrewGillum for the VP nom would be a poor electoral move on @ewarren’s part – but one I hope she makes 🙏🙏

When reached for comment about the vice presidential buzz, a Warren campaign official said, “that is baseless and not at all true.”

But two sources said the talks between Warren and Gillum resemble the kind of courtship that happens when a leading presidential candidate is exploring potential vice presidential contenders. One source briefed on the communications said the two Democrats have been in contact over the course of the campaign and that it is the “strong impression” that Gillum is a possible vice presidential contender for Warren, who has risen in recent months to become a frontrunner in the 2020 primary, the source said.
